I’m teaching my summer class in the Northern D.Min program this week. The class, “church in the postmodern context,” is both an exploration of ecclesiology, and the cultural categories of modernity verus postmodernity. It is built on my own book the Great Giveaway as well as Jaimie K Smith’s Who’s Afraid of Postmodernism? Also foundational is Nancy Murphy’s (along with James McClendon) “Distinguishing Modern and PostModern Theologies.”Modern Theology 1989 (which can be downloaded from the web). From these introductory texts we explore a host of fine writings in the field of postmodernity, Scripture and theology to work on an analysis of each student’s ministry issue in their Doctor of Ministry program. It’s always a busy and stimulating week. I’ll be back posting in a couple of days.
