ENUMCLAW, Wash., June 21, 2011 /Christian Newswire/ -- Rather than engaging the culture, modern Christianity has faltered through compromise in exchange for cultural acceptance, says author James Barry Babb. His new book, "Post Cards from Another Gospel," seeks to dispel the allure of postmodernism church thinking.
"Postmodernism asserts that universal truth is not transcendent from one culture or society to the next; rather it is to be personally and subjectively interpreted and applied."
This type of thinking appeals to a number of people, especially those reluctant to embrace more historical and traditional tenets of Christianity. Babb also believes one of the reasons for such a postmodern push is the generational onset of all-too-often ambiguous belief systems espoused by far too many Christians.
According to a study from LifeWay Research, more than two-thirds of young adults who attend a Protestant church for at least a year in high school will stop attending church regularly for at least a year between the ages of 18 and 22.*
And so the evolution of evangelism has resulted in an effort to repackage Christianity in order to suit the whims of seekers, and to appeal to a growing consumerist-minded church-goer.
Primarily a first person account of a pastor's experience, "Post Cards" is part journey, part observation, as the reader is asked to consider the truth merits of concepts such as:
- Cultural Relevance
- Seeker and Emergent Movements
- True Social Justice
- The Prosperity Gospel
- Man-Centered Evangelism
Through Scripture, Babb re-establishes biblical tenants that counter the fallacies found in the trends that have affected all the streams of postmodern Christianity.
With degrees from Memphis State University and Liberty University, Babb is the founder of TruthCulture Ministries. A former high school teacher, Babb has worked for over 25 years as a pastor, counselor, and worship leader.
