Why is Wright Misrepresented and Misunderstood by so many of his Reformed Critics?
I’m sure Bishop Wright is not right all the time? Who amongst us is! But this piece is food for thought. Perhaps a word of caution.
Postmodernity vs. the Gospel?
Lots to chew on here and much that will clarify to some extent: “Although I have nothing against contextualization per se, Jamie nor I have this in mind as we present our various takes on postmodernity as a critique of current American church practice. We are both simply trying to unveil what the critique of postmodernity reveals about both our current culture and our current church practice. We are using the postmodern authors to unveil the huge shortcomings of current church practices all because of our indebtedness to modernism and all its manifestations. The response we both offer, however, is not to contextualize a church to postmodernity, but rather to reinvigorate an ecclesiology for our times. As Jamie states “it might just be these Parisians who can help us be the church.” (p.23).”

Interesting to see how both these “evangelical” pastors respond to the questions and how they view the participation of Christians or the church in the USA political scenario.
