Summary Read First Chapter image missing

This book sorts out the confusion created by the use of the term "postmodern" in relation to widely divergent theological positions. Four different types of postmodern theology are distinguished in the preface: constructive, deconstructive, liberationist, and conservative. Two forms of each type are discussed in the book.

Writing from a constructive, postmodern perspective, the authors enter into dialogue with the deconstructive postmodernism of Mark C. Taylor and Jean-Francois Lyotard, with the liberationist postmodernism of Harvey Cox and Cornel West, and with the conservative postmodernism of George William Rutler and John Paul II.

David Ray Griffin is professor of philosophy of religion at the School of Theology at Claremont and Claremont Graduate School, executive director of the Center for Process Studies, and founding president of the Center for a Postmodern World. William A. Beardslee is Charles Howard Candler Professor of Religion Emeritus at Emory University and director of the Process and Faith Program of the Center for Process Studies in Claremont, California. Joe Holland is executive director of the Pallottine Institute for Lay leadership and Apostolate Research at Seton Hall University and director of the American Catholic Lay Network in Washington, DC.
