Short article discussing the state of conservative/post-conservative theological dialogue – next-wave > church & culture: The state of the debate by Steve Bush. Bush uses the recent book “Reclaiming the Center”, a response to Stanley Grenz’s “Renewing the Center”, as a starting point for looking at where fruitful (and not so fruitful) conversation might take place.
The next step for postconservatives will have to be to challenge the evangelical obsession with epistemology, which in turn reveals a privileging of theory over practice and philosophy over cultural, economic, and political theory. Yes I know everyone is afraid that their kid is going to stop believing in Absolute Truth, and soon thereafter convert to satanism and start doing drugs, but there are other things to talk about.
Steve Bush blogs over at Harbinger which looks an interesting read.
