    Understanding Postmodernism

    A Christian Perspective

    by Stewart E. Kelly
    With James K. Dew Jr.

    In order for Christians to make wise decisions, we first need to understand our postmodern context. With wisdom and care, Stewart Kelly and James Dew compare fundamental postmodern principles with the gospel of Jesus Christ and the Christian faith, neither rejecting every postmodernism concern nor embracing every affirmation wholesale. Instead, we are encouraged to understand the postmodern world as we seek to mature spiritually in Christ.
