A New Kind Of Conversation
Full Product Description
Using the motif of the weblog, A New Kind of Conversation is an experimental book that enters into this conversation with five evangelical leaders and acedemics (Brian Mclaren, Bruce Ellis Benson, Ellen Harourunian, Mabiala Kenzon, and Myron Bradley Penner), who are the primary bloggers. Originally posted on anewkindofconverstion.com, people all over the world were invited to blog on topics related to the issue of postmodernism and evangelicalism such as:
What is postmodernism?
Evangelical Faith and (postmodern) others
Postmodernism and Spiritual Formation
what is Postmodern Evangelical?
The book is a condensed version of that conversation.
Myron Bradley Penner is the co-chair of the Study Group for Evangelical Theology and Postmodernism at the Evangelical Theological Society and is the editor of (and contributor to) Christianity and the Postmodern Turn: Six Views.
Hunter Barnes has a diverse background including professional work as an actor and writer. He has a deep interest in narrative theory and orality and scripture and is the creative arts director for Zarephath Christian Church.

A New Kind of ConversationJim Currin, via The Good Book Stall
This is an unusual book and I wasn’t sure I was going to like it. Blogs belong on the web, and the idea of turning a blog site conversation in to a printed book, described as ‘an experiment’ on the cover, intrigued me rather than appealed. However, by the end I thought the experiment worked. Blogging is an interactive web space where people join in a continuing discussion … in this case various evangelical theologians about postmodernism. This book worked however because the ‘online traps’ of repetition and exclusive discussion are ironed out with a careful edit and peppering of much needed definitions/explanations throughout. The result is an interaction played out on the pages between people who know their subject which is fascinating, lively, and informative … all of which reminded me of my old Biblical Studies tutor who once made the memorable comment: ‘Study is like sex: it is not much fun on your own!’
