But what is postmodernism? How did it arise? What characterizes the
postmodern ethos? What is the postmodern mind and how does it differ
from the modern mind? Who are its leading advocates? Most important of
all, what challenges does this cultural shift present to the church,
which must proclaim the gospel to the emerging postmodern generation?

Stanley Grenz here charts the postmodern landscape. He shows the
threads that link art and architecture, philosophy and fiction,
literary theory and television. He shows how the postmodern phenomenon
has actually been in the making for a century and then introduces
readers to the gurus of the postmodern mind-set. What he offers here is
truly an indispensable guide for understanding today’s culture.
