Modernity: Christianity's Estranged Child Reconstructed
"Modern" Western culture is in crisis. Advocates of the emerging "postmodernist" outlook argue that modernity's project is flawed and should be abandoned. This volume by John Thornhill challenges the postmodern critique, arguing that modernity, rightly reconceived, retains the rational force to carry us into the next century. Drawing on the views of contemporary thinkers calling for a reappraisal of modernity's dominant assumptions, Thornhill questions the view that the spirit of modernity is incompatible with Christian ideals and shows how the two can provide the cultural foundation we need as we enter the twenty-first century.
