Solomon Among The Postmoderns by Peter Leithart

Leithart tackles postmodernism through the eyes of Solomon and Ecclesiastes. His basic thesis is that Ecclesiates is postmodern – it agrees with much of the postmodern position. But Leithart argues that Solomon speaks the language of postmodernism not to affirm it but to emphasize that the world is built to force us to live by faith – that while the world may seem ‘confusing now’ there is a God who will make all things clear.

 

Much of the book is a critique of postmodern thought – which I find intensely boring (having read too many christian postmodern books) but Leithart’s connection of postmodernism to Solomon is interesting.
