Schweitzer's goal in this book is to explore what postmodernity actually means for theology and how theology and the church may respond to its challenges. He focuses on the life cycle as it is changing with the advent of postmodernity, looking sequentially at segments of the life cycle using different lenses: modernity, postmodernity, and responses from church and theology. Schweitzer concludes with a theology of the life cycle.

Editorial Reviews

"Here is a volume that is sure to be welcomed by anyone who teaches topics related to postmodernism. But it will be especially appreciated by teachers of religious education and practical theology because Friedrich Schweitzer does more than discuss various interpretations of postmodernism and its critiques. He paints a picture of the postmodern life cycle, which he claims is itself a theological issue. The brilliance of his treatment is further enhanced by the European and North American perspectives he engages in his critique of religious imagery, religious education, and pastoral theology within the context of present day pluriformity. Particularly unique is the author's attempt to make his work available to a broad audience. This book is public theology in its best sense."
