Somehow it escaped mention before, but Mikal Marrs reminded me of this article over at Publisher’s Weekly with the catchy title, “Pomos Toward Paradise.” How I forgot to post something on it, I don’t know, but it seemed vaguely familiar to me as I was reading through…
Anyway, TMI. I meant to mention it here for your very much edification, and forgot. Apologies all around my little forgetful brain.
You’ll need to sign up for a 30 day free trial to view it, but seriously, it’s worth it. Check out some of the books mentioned.
Brian McLaren’s New Kind of Christian
The Hollywood Project: A Look into the Minds of the Makers of Spiritually Relevant Films by Alex Field
The Journey Towards Relevance by Kary Oberbrunner (both from Relevant Books)
Future Church: Ministry in a Post-Seeker Age by Jim L. Wilson (Broadman & Holman)
Searching for God Knows What by Donald Miller (Thomas Nelson)
Dan Allender’s To Be Told: Know Your Story, Shape Your Future (Waterbrook).
This last book, set to release in March, is “expected to appeal to the postmodernist love of story by encouraging readers to reflect on the story of their lives.”
Now all you fiction-writers take note of that last line…”postmodernist love of story.” I’m assuming that description comes from someone at Waterbrook. Might want to shop your pomo fiction over there.
