Full Product Description
Carl Raschke, author of the acclaimed The Next Reformation, tackles this question and others in GloboChrist: The Great Commission Takes a Postmodern Turn. In this third volume of the well-received Church and Postmodern Culture series, Raschke tackles the subjects of globalization, postmodernism, and information technology and their impact on missions and evangelism. In addition, he addresses the role that Christianity plays in an increasingly pluralistic world, providing concrete strategies for confronting the challenges. Raschke, in short, helps Christians respond to the tectonic shifts of the twenty-first century.
This excellent melding of theory and practice will appeal to a broad audience of scholars, students, pastors, and interested lay readers. GloboChrist will not only leave an indelible mark in the academic realm but will also create a lasting impact on culture at large.
GloboChrist by Carl Raschke was published by Baker in September 2008 and is our 37230th best seller. The ISBN for GloboChrist is 9780801032615.

GloboChristJim Currin, via The Good Book Stall
The Great Commission takes a postmodern turn is the sub heading to Carl Raschke’s book with the strange title GloboChrist. Technical text which some may call dense, this is none the less an exciting book to read if taken slowly. It explores a number of concepts which were new to me, like ‘Semiotics’ and Augustine’s suggestion that the order of signs and language be studied to understand the Biblical text and context better. GloboChrist is shorthand for ‘Global Postmodern Christianity’ and the image and theology of Christ as understood in different parts of the world. ‘The coming of the GloboChrist is far better appreciated by anthropologists and historians of religion, who happen to be specialists in cultural sign-systems ... than theologians.’ (p26)The book provides a flavour and scope of this work which will not be a popular read so much as an important contribution to mission studies. Get past the jargon and irritating invention of new words and you will find this an informative and stimulating study.
