R. Scott Smith surveys the influence of postmodernism and presents^the claims of several Christian postmodern authors, including two^key leaders in the Emerging Church. He uses their ideas as a^starting point for a thorough critique of postmodernism, testing it^against Scripture, reason, and logic, and evaluating its strengths^and weaknesses. He assesses to what extent, if any, Christians^should embrace "Christian" postmodernism.^


The latest clarion call in the never-ending cavalcade of "what'snew" in the evangelical world is the confident assertion from somequarters that the church needs to embrace "postmodernism" if it isgoing to engage postmoderns effectively. Pastors trying to breakdown the often indigestible subject matter of postmodernism intobite-size chunks in order to equip their people to engage it, andteachers who are aiming at giving their students a workingknowledge of the way postmodernism is impacting the church willfind a good deal of help from Smith.
-J. Ligon Duncan III, Senior Minister, FirstPresbyterian Church, Jackson, Mississippi


Scott Smith and I agree on a lot. We share a deep commitment toJesus Christ, a love of the Bible, and a passion for the church. Wealso agree that we're currently living in a liminal time, and it'sthose "boundary times" when people look most closely at the beliefsthat underlie their practices. So, we've all got some things tofigure out right now, including what we can really know and thecertainty with which we can state our claims in a pluralisticsociety. I appreciate Scott's voice in this conversation. He is acareful reader of my work, and he writes with a gracious andgenerous tone. Interlocutors like Scott will be a helpful challengeto all of us in the "emerging church." I consider him a friendlycritic and a brother in Christ.
-Tony Jones, author of Postmodern YouthMinistry and National Director, Emergent


Scott Smith is uniquely suited to enter the Emergentconversation with this helpful volume. Not only is he an analyticphilosopher with a razor-sharp mind who has specialized inanalyzing postmodernistic views on the relationship betweenlanguage and the world, but he is also a man who cares for thelost, loves the church, and has an ability to communicate complextruths to people in the pew.
-Justin Taylor, Executive Editor, Desiring God


Every leader in the new Emergent Movement will want to read thisfascinating book. They simply will not find a more engaging,knowledgeable, balanced, and kind treatment of their concerns,ideas, and practices.
-Craig J. Hazen, Professor of ComparativeReligion, Biola University


Scott Smith's study challenges us to take seriously the truthclaim of the gospel both in how we proclaim it in words and in howwe manifest it in our personal and community lives.
-Gary Inrig, Senior Pastor, Trinity Church,Redlands, California
