quick annoucement: Jamie Smith’s new book is here

More later–I’m at work, but had to tell somebody. The long-awaited book by pentecostal philosopher and Calvin professor, James K.A. Smith, with the fascinating sub-title “Taking Derrida, Lyotard and Foucault to Church” is now here. Who’s Afraid of Post-Modernism? is part of a new series that Mr. Smith is going to edit issued by the good folks at Baker Academic (“The Church and Postmodern Culture.”) I’ve been working through my advance copy and can’t wait to tell you more about it, but, for now, tell anybody whose having any kind of emergent conversation (pro or con) anybody that cares about Christian philosophy, and anyone who desires the church to be in interaction with the issues of the day: this is a must-read. More later.
Who’s Afraid of Post-Modernism: Taking Derrida, Lyotard and Foucault to Church James K.A. Smith (Baker) $17.99

  1. Thanks, Byron. I read through a chunk of this at the Baker/Brazos booktable at the CCCU conference. It looks great.

  2. ‘charismatic'(in the technical sense) to be more exact. He has a pentecostal history, though.
