This class is for the Master of Divinity and for the Master of Evangelical Theology programs.  The way reality is perceived and explained has changed enormously over the last half-century, greatly impacting European and Western societies. Postmodernism has arisen in reaction to the perceived shortcomings of modernism, and as a product of developments in the philosophy of language and science, sociology, and the arts. Theology has been deeply impacted by this postmodern shift. Although postmodernism has helped the contemporary world critically examine itself, it is not without its dangers. We will explore the historical and philosophical development of postmodernism and examine the feasibility of preaching Christ today.
