Preaching to a Postmodern World : A Guide to Reaching Twenty-First-Century Listeners
by Graham Johnston and Haddon Robinson




Overview -
While growing churches dot our urban centers and country landscapes, church-goers and students today are actually less likely to maintain a Christian worldview than in the past. In fact, the majority of society does not even believe in objective truth. A minister out of touch with this culture is like an uninformed missionary trying to teach in a foreign country. To communicate God's Word effectively in the twenty-first century, teachers need to know how to connect with and confront an audience of postmodern listeners.

In Preaching to a Postmodern World, Johnston shows pastors, seminary students, professors, lay teachers, and church leaders can reach the present age without selling out to it. The book discusses how to:
- distinguish between modernism and postmodernism
- understand postmodern worldviews
- change the style of preaching without compromising the substance
- take advantage of new opportunities provided by the cultural shift
- show an inattentive society the relevance of God's truth

The author's keen insights into contemporary pop and media culture also help equip speakers to address today's listeners with clarity and relevance.
