Using the motif of the weblog A New Kind of Conversation is an experimental book that enters into this conversation with five evangelical leaders and academics Brian McLaren Bruce Ellis Benson Ellen Harourunian Mabiala Kenzon and Myron Bradley Penner who are the primary bloggers.Originally posted on anewkindofconversation.com people all over the world were invited to blog on topics relevant to the issue of postmodernism and evangelicalism such as What is 'Postmodernism' Evangelical Faith and Postmodern Others Postmodernism and Spiritual Formation What is a Postmodern EvangelicalThe book is a condensed version of that conversation.
