To the authors of this book, today’s world is „postmodern“. They see a
fragmented world. It seems to have become implausible to find a common
point of view, a unity in purpose or truth. Postmodernity challenges
Christian faith, because it appears to go against the very grain of a
sense of tradition, communion, and commitment. On the eve of his election
pope Benedict XVI warned against the „dictatorship of relativism“. Would
it still be possible to find genuine Christian ways to live in postmodern
times? This collection of essays by a group of Dutch theologians will
stimulate the imagination of anyone who reads them.

Dr. Stephan van Erp (Tilburg 1966) was researcher of the Dominican Study

Dr. André Lascaris (Amsterdam 1939) is a Dominican and a staff member of
