Description

More than a guidebook to the postmodernity debate, Lakeland's volume clarifies the impulses and critical impetus behind the cultural, intellectual, and scientific expressions of postmodern thought. He goes on to identify the import and issues it presents for religion and for areas of Christian theology. Concentrating on God, Church, and Christ, Lakeland outlines the church's mission to the postmodern world, including a constructive theological apologetics.

Endorsements

"Lakeland's book brings postmodernity into sharp relief. He lifts the fog through short, focused appraisals of key philosophers and theologians. He captures the contents of postmodernity through expert analysis of its salient themes. And he measures its ambiguity because of different cultural interpretations and valuations. Lakeland's work ranks with David Tracy's Plurality and Ambiguity in defining the issues for theology today…Fundamental reading."
— Roger Haight, Weston Jesuit School of Theology
