This book explains the origins and tenants of postmodern philosophy. I find it fascinating to gain a little insight into how current day society works and what underpins a lot of the ideas floating around today. This specific book was easy to read and understand while also challenging my mind. It is a great resource for students and can be applied to many different disciplines. ( )

What does it mean to be a Christian in a postmodern context? Middleton and Walsh approach this question with clarity and grace. Divided into two sections, the text examines both postmodern thought (Derrida and the gang) and a Christian response. In all, a good introduction and balanced response to postmodernism, Trust is Stranger than It Used to Be helps shape a postmodern Christianity. B+ ( )
