Rick Shrader‘s Review:
Erickson is best known as a theological writer. He has written quite a lot on postmodernism and I have appreciated what he has had to say. This latest book (2002) is a little different approach in that he uses current scenarios to present the dilemma of our culture and then comments on each one. I think his observations about TV and how it has changed in our life-time is very revealing and the examples he uses of postmodern ethics (Seinfeld being “the paradigmatic postmodern program of the 1990s”) ought to cause us to be very careful what our children are watching.
