Piper's emphasis on these two issues is interesting. Book after book, Piper shows how God's glory and joy affects every area of life and in the book he edited with Justin Taylor, "The Supremacy of Chrst in a Postmodern World," Piper continues that tradition.
The book as a whole, obviously, deals with postmodernity. At times, the chapters were confusing and distracting. I frequently found myself wondering why a certain section or even chapter was even in the book. But overall, Piper and Taylor suceed.
The chapter most helpful to me was written by Voddie Baucham on "Truth and the Supremacy of Christ in a Postmodern World." I must say that of anything I have read regarding postmodern society and philosophy, this is perhaps the best summary that covers a great deal of subjects and issues. Baucham wrote with amazing clarity and depth. I constantly found myself with lightbulbs turning on in my head.
I also enjoyed the chapters provided by Mark Driscoll and Tim Keller. These two men are very postmodern and yet have not forfeited their souls. These two men are the postchildren of how to do ministry in a postmodern culture. Driscoll serves as a pastor in Seattle, WA while Keller has served as pastor in the heart of New York City. Each men write insightful chapters that engage the reader to think theologically and ministerially.
Overall, the book is well written and put together well. Although there were parts I found scratching my head distracted, the book is a helpful resource to have especially as the culture continues to shift below our feet and before our very eyes. The occasional reference to Emergents and the Emerging Church is insightful and well received. I would recommend this book to anyone wanting to know more about how to deal with postmodernity with a Reformed Christian worldview.
