Postmodernity

Grenz, Stanley J A Primer on Postmodernism Grand Rapids: Eerdmans, 1996
To date, the single best introduction to postmodern thought and culture, and the most accessible. Grenz is that rare academic who does not write like one.

Long, Jimmy Emerging Hope: A Strategy for Reaching Postmodern Generations Downers Grove: InterVarsity, 2003
In this updated edition of Long’s earlier Generating Hope we have a seasoned student of culture at the top of his game. Long is someone who “gets” it, and helps others get it as well.

Lyon, David Postmodernity Minneapolis: University of Minnesota Press, 1999
Part of the Concepts in Social Thought series, Lyon’s work is often used as a collegiate text. Lyon reveals how postmodernity not only calls into question many of the key ideas of the modern world, but actually works to undermine them. Lyon focuses on technology and consumerism as his primary windows into the postmodern.

Veith, Gene Edward Postmodern Times: A Christian Guide to Contemporary Thought and Culture Wheaton: Crossway, 1994
This was one of the early, and still best, books on postmodern thought. Sane, balanced; though over ten years old, it’s insights have stood the test of time.
