From the academy to pop culture, our society is in the throes of change rivaling the birth of modernity out of the decay of the Middle Ages. We are now moving from the modern to the postmodern era. But what is postmodernism? How did it arise? What characterizes the postmodern ethos? What is the postmodern mind and how does it differ from the modern mind? Who are its leading advocates? Most important of all, what challenges does this cultural shift present to the church, which must proclaim the gospel to the emerging postmodern generation?

Stanley Grenz charts the postmodern landscape. He shows the threads that link art and architecture, philosophy and fiction, literary theory, and television. He shows how the postmodern phenomenon has actually been in the making for a century and then introduces readers to the gurus of the postmodern mind-set. What he offers here is truly an indispensable guide for understanding today's culture. Download and start listening now!

    " If you want to know more about Postmodernism or even if you don't understand the term or think it's "bad"....THEN READ THIS!!!! "

    " A nice summary by a sadly missed author. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Patrick | 12/17/2013

    " This book is a bit trying and lacks some of the depth that I would have enjoyed from Grenz. While it is an introduction, the discussion is better carried on in Smith's "Who's Afraid of Postmodernism?", but that's my opinion. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Matt | 11/21/2013

    " I learned how postmodern thought evolved. Well explained by Grenz. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Thomas Grosh IV | 10/19/2013

    " Introduces a lot of the academic characters involved in the conversation. Probably a little dated, its been awhile since I've looked at it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joel | 8/30/2013

    " a bit long, but well indepth "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pete Bartel | 8/25/2013

    " Heavy going, academic and philosophical look at postmodernism and how we got there from modernism. Some brief recommendations on presenting the gospel in a postmodernist world. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robert Cornwall | 3/8/2013

    " An excellent treatment of postmodernism from the late evangelical theologian. It's been out for some time, but it's a good place to start "

    " Pretty fair intro to postmodernism and its leading voices though a bit too embracing for me to agree with all of Grenz's conslusions. "
