Mark Sayers provides an interesting take the war between modernist Christians and those other, hippy, ones – the PostMods.
The problem was that things got messy when we saw postmodernism as an epoch. Yes there was and is a philosophical movement known as postmodernism, propagated predominately by French intellectuals, and that was born out of the frustration of neo-marxists at the failed attempts at social revolution during the student riots of May 1968. Although now passe in French intellectual circles, the movement still holds sway predominatly within academic circles around the world. But like a very large man trying to fit into an XS t-shirt, postmodernism was stretched beyond its limits. The label was attached to everything. Christians particularly used it to describe the era we were living in. Postmodernism was a philosophical movement never an epoch. A whole host of confusions emerge when we examine some of the cultural trends of our day that have been described as postmodern.
Could it be so?
Dare it be so?
