Abstract

 

ON THE ROAD TO MEANING, PURPOSE & HAPPINESS: By Stan D. Gaede, 192 pp., Downers Grove, IL: InterVarsity Press, 2002, $11.00, paperback.

 

Gaedes provides guidance for finding the authentic happiness we long for, addressing topics such as vocation, relationships, integrity and compassion. The book is written with a frank and conversational style.

 

REDISCOVERING OUR ROOTS, RECHARTING OUR ROUTES: By Gerard Kelly 237pp., Downers Grove, IL: InterVarsity Press, 1999, $13.00, paperback.

 

Kelly explores the bewildering complexity of life today and the responses it demands. How do we gain a foothold in this new cultural landscape? Culture demands that we reroute. Survival demands that we reroute. Survival demands that we reroot.

 

A READER'S GUIDE TO THE BOOK OF REVELATION: By Paul Spilsbury: 155 pp., Downers Grove, IL: InterVarsity Press, 2002, $13.00, paperback.

 

Here is a guide that will help us hear Revelation speak. Spilsbury reveals how behind the poetic language of Revelation lies a message both simple and profound: the gospel clearly proclaimed. The book inspires grateful worship and calls us to costly discipleship.

 

A SURVEY OF CHRISTIAN OPTIONS: By Robert C. Greer: 252 pp., Downers Grove, IL: InterVarsity Press, 2003, $18.00, paperback.

 

Greer defines five major philosophical worldviews and maps four different ways Christian thinkers have recommended we respond. This book is an illuminating map for those who feel lost in the maze of conflicting analyses of postmodernism and are looking for a faithful way forward.

 

DEFENDING CHRISTIANITY AGAINST THE CHALLENGES OF POSTMODERNISM: By Douglas Groothuis 303 pp., Downers Grove, IL: InterVarsity Press, 2000, $14.00, paperback.

 

Groothuis sees the basic tenets of postmodernism as intellectually flawed and here unveils how truth can be defended in the postmodern era in the vital areas of theology, apologetics, ethics and the arts.

 

THE PROMISE & PERILS OF POSTMODERNISM: By Millard J. Erickson: 335 pp., Downers Grove, IL: InterVarsity Press, 2001, $17.00, paperback.

 

The intellectual roots of postmodernism are examined, identifying its most prominent exponents and critiquing its foundational assumptions with clarity and evenhandedness. Erickson's book is a 2002 Christianity Today Book Award winner, which commends truth to our culture.
