"Seeping postmodernism" is Doug's topic in this book, in which "we surmise that the brain is Ireland and we call for St. Patrick." Don't be intimidated by this important word (or topic) any longer.

Look Inside the Book

From the Book:

"For many reasons, none of them intellectually compelling, postmodern thinking proper, along with postmodern assumptions unacknowledged, are making great headway in the “post-conservative” evangelical world. One lesson that we can take from the postmodernist playbook in this regard is that fooling around with language is actually a disguised power grab. While denying their point (because they always privilege their own discourse), I do want to turn it on them. Their fundamental dishonesty in reasoning and refusal to deal with God as He has revealed Himself, can only signal the presence of that old adversary in the camp, which is, of course, unbelief. These are not mere differences of opinion, or denominational distinctives."

What People Are Saying:

Wilson makes that old-time religion contemporary not by dumbing it down for the huddled masses, but through his trademark winsome snark. God's people are better for it. His enemies -- not so much." -Steve Deace, nationally syndicated radio host

"More like a lumberjack than a pastor, even when he wears a suit." -The New York Times

"Doug Wilson jumped the shark a long time ago." -Jonathan Merritt

"So just who is this twisted 'Doug Wilson' creature, anyway?" -The Slacktivist

"I much prefer Wilson's sincerity to the vague and Python-esque witterings of the interfaith and ecumenical groups who barely respect their own traditions. He is willing to maintain very staunchly that Jesus of Nazareth was the Christ and that his sacrifice redeems our state of sin." -Christopher Hitchens

"When friends ask me where I go for wise cultural analysis, the first name that always comes to mind is Doug Wilson. For years, I've found Doug's commentary on culture, politics, economics, and family to be profoundly insightful and biblically faithful. In Rules for Reformers, Doug has packaged his wise and witty cultural commentary with shrewd and gracious application of the Scriptures. In doing so, he's given those of us who love the gospel a manifest for grace-driven cultural reformation." -Joe Rigney, author of The Things of Earth and Live Like a Narnian and professor at Bethlehem College and Seminary

Good Book for those Familiar with Post Modernism

Had I not had a solid background in PM I would not have understood the subtle points of the author. That being said, this book was really helpful to understand how "absolute relativism" has slipped into religious practice. the Bible is absolute and we must never abandon that.
