Published by Brazos Press. a division of Baker Book House Company. How does one begin a conversation about a contentious issue such as Christianity and the postmodern turn? The difficulty is compounded in our case because of the controversial nature of postmodernism in Christian intellectual circles. The dilemma facing an introduction of this sort is to broach the issue of the postmodern turn without transgressing its categories; that is, to say what postmodernism is so that the question regarding the nature of postmodernism remains a permanent feature of the discourse about postmodernism.

Myron Penner is to be commended for taking the discussion of postmodernity in a promising new direction. For all too long, evangelicals of differing persuasions regarding the merits or dangers of postmodern thought have often talked past one another. Christianity and the Postmodern Turn brings together people from both sides and puts them in dialogue. Although the resulting dialogue is not perfect (what dialogue is?), the writers nonetheless genuinely attempt to engage with one another, and so provide models for future interaction. -Bruce Ellis Benson, Wheaton College.

Are Christianity and Postmodern philosophy compatible? In this book, six scholars address this question. Four are philosophers and two are theologians. Unfortunately, in this debate specifically, people continue to talk passed one another - and this book is a perfect example of that. Definitions are left undefined. Terms are used differently. Straw men are set up. Straw men are torn down. It makes for a good read, especially if you're looking for a book that can enter you into the conversation. Though there is still widespread disagreement about the nature of postmodern theology, it helps just to know that this is the case. In many ways, this book shows just how little people understand one another. I don't think that Christianity is incompatible with postmodern philosophy. However, it "is" incompatible with certain schools of thought within Christian theology.
No current Talk conversations about this book. Despite Penner not fully realizing his hopes, I believe his text is an invaluable introduction for Christians who want to minister in our contemporary culture.
