The Postmodern Turn

The Postmodern Turn against Reason
On page 49 White lays out 4 options within Postmodernism. How do you communicate the truth of the gospel to those young people who would fall under nihilism? Relativism? Constructivism? Pragmatism?

Truth, Power and Morality

There is so much in this chapter and I could not come up with one question. Therefore, I’ll simply ask you to tell us what you think about the content of this chapter.

The Self

How do premodernism, modernism, and postmodernism describe “the self”? How might each of these understandings of the self influence the ways in which we approach ministry? Do you think our practices of ministry are influenced by a particular understanding of “the self”?
