Post-modernism, the church, and the struggle for authentic faith
"There are no absolutes...what's true for you is not necessarily true for me." - a post-modern thought
"So what happens when the group of people who've been reared on this kind of post-modern thinking then become our surgeons, our bankers and accountants, police officers and judges?" -David Fletcher, Assoc. Professor of Philosophy/Wheaton College
What is post-modernism? How has it affected our culture? How will it impact our future? What is the role of the Christian church in a post-modern world? Does man truly need God or is God merely a fairytale idea left over from a past cultural experiment? These questions are the launching point for Rebellion of Thought, as filmmakers The Brothers Williamson examine a new generation that refuses to accept authority, code and convention. They probe the impact and consequences of such thinking both for the church and society. So, in the midst of all this, how do believers in Christ express their faith in a compelling, relevant way? What does it mean to love your neighbor as yourself?
Parents, educators, small group leaders and Christian churches ignore the questions raised in Rebellion of Thought at their own peril. Without this critical examination, the result of post-modernism will bankrupt future generations in the years to come.
Featuring these experts who take a critical look at the role of authentic Christian faith in a post-modern culture:
Angus Menuge (Chair of Philosophy - Concordia University)
D.A. Carson (Prof. Of New Testament - Trinity Evangelical Divinity School)
Jim Spiegel (Professor of Philosophy - Taylor University)
Bruce Ellis Benson (Assoc. Prof. Of Philosophy - Wheaton College)
Gene Edward Veith, Jr. (Culture Editor - World Magazine)
