Coming Out Alive! Navigating Postmodern Philosophy and Culture by Karen E. Cedergren is a one-of-a-kind book on how Postmodern culture and philosophy have changed the worldview. Almost a critical analysis of what is happening in the world at the moment and its consequences on believers, the author takes a deep look at what postmodernism has done to religion. After detailing what pre-modernism, modernism, and postmodernism are, she starts her narrative on how the Church has been affected by it. Culture has changed, and this has had a direct impact on the Church and people’s beliefs. Instead of being radical and canceling everything, the author calls for a renaissance where the Church and believers can see where things went wrong and how they can restore religion to where it belongs. She doesn’t talk about boycotting anything; she just urges the Church to be a little less like the world and be more like what Christianity should be.
Short, direct, and very easy to digest, author Karen E. Cedergren did a fantastic job with the research and driving her point home without sounding conceited. Instead of just sharing her ideas, she lays the facts down before sharing her findings with readers. She is basically calling out churches and how they have become lifeless. Instead of keeping tradition alive, churches have become a little lazy in preaching and keeping God’s name alive. People who are searching for guidance cannot find it in the churches, and people are drifting away from religion. But she isn’t just registering her grievances. She understands why things have changed and how we can get out of this mess quickly. This simple book is helpful, educational, and inspirational!
