Who is Afraid of Postmodernism?: Challenging Theology for a Society in Search of Identity
Stephan Erp, André Lascaris
LIT Verlag Münster, 2005 - Postmodern theology - 117 pages
To the authors of this book, today's world is "postmodern". They see a fragmented world. It seems to have become implausible to find a common point of view, a unity in purpose or truth. Postmodernity challenges Christian faith, because it appears to go against the very grain of a sense of tradition, communion, and commitment. On the eve of his election pope Benedict XVI warned against the "dictatorship of relativism". Would it still be possible to find genuine Christian ways to live in postmodern times? This collection of essays by a group of Dutch theologians will stimulate the imagination of anyone who reads them.
