I’ve had a small hand in a trio of books lately. The first is The Justice Project. Edited by Brian McLaren, Elisa Padilla, and Ashely Bunting Seeber, TJP is a follow up to An Emergent Manifesto of Hope, a book that Doug and I edited a few years ago.
TJP cruises along, with about twice as many authors as the Manifesto and essays of about half the length. Notable contributors include Peggy and Bart Campolo, Richard Twiss, Shauna Neiquist, and Shawn Landres. My own contribution is entitled, “(De)constructing Justice: What Does the Postmodern Turn Contribute to the Christian Passion for Justice?”
I’ve posted it below, in it’s entirety, after the jump. If you don’t really understand what postmodernism really is, and you’ve only heard conservative caricatures of it, you might find it helpful. And if you like my chapter, you’ll love the book.
