A Supremacia de Cristo em um Mundo Pós-Moderno

In a postmodern society where “absolute truth” is a foreign concept and religion is without morals, Christians often wonder, “How can I share the love, joy, and truth of Christ with a hurting world?”

Six of today’s leading pastor-theologians—John Piper, Voddie Baucham, D. A. Carson, Tim Keller, Mark Driscoll, and David Wells—have joined together to offer Christians a pract

This is an excellent book that will teach Christians how to respond reasonably to the unbelief in today’s postmodern world. Each chapter is by a well known theologian. I was familiar with all of them except Voddie Baughan, Jr. He wrote Chapter 2 Truth and the Supremacy of Christ and this chapter was particularly helpful to me – so helpful that I wrote up a summary of the chapter and shared it with my granddaughter who is a freshman in college and will be taking a philosophy class next semester. ...more

It's hard to rate this book as every chapter is written by a different author. I wish it would have spent a little more time explaining post-modernism. Most of the chapters were pretty good. I felt like Driscoll had some decent ideas but did not appreciate his clearly stereotypical view of fundamentalism. Neither did I appreciate the way he presented Christ. Overall a good book though.

A couple of weeks ago I finished reading a collection of essays that was edited by John Piper. All of these essays centered around the idea of Christ's supremacy in the postmodern/relativistic culture in which we live.

These essays are the product of a conference in which these different theologians gathered together to talk about this exact issue.

The contributers to this collections are:

David Wells

Voddie Baucham Jr.

John Piper

D.A. Carson

Tim Keller

Mark Driscoll

When I bought this book, I bought it because of it's interesting title. I was taking a lot of philosophy classes at Belhaven and I thought this would look good on my shelf. For whatever reason I decided to pick up the book and start reading. The next thing i new I was underlining, writing in margins, circling and looking up definitions for words. The book had gripped me philosophically, theologically, missionaly, culturally, practically, and so much more!

I couldn't decide what "Shelf" to put th

How can the church teach the gospel of a man who claimed to be “the Truth” to a world that hates truth claims? That was the topic being addressed at the 2006 Desiring God National Conference. This book is basically transcripts of the plenary sessions from that conference.

Each chapter corresponds to the message presented by each of the speakers at the conference: David Wells, Voddie Baucham, Tim Keller, Mark Driscoll, D.A. Carson, and John Piper… not a bad lineup! There is also a chapter titled “

This book is in reality a collection of essays by 6 very different theologians, a fantastic overview of Biblically-sound, humble yet uncompromising, insightful and inspiring, gracious and passionate responses to the postmodern ethos. Some questions I had were answered, some things I knew but couldn't quite define were put in context for me. I was also convicted. As I read the last page, it left me pondering... Am I a relevant and effective witness? Am I flexible yet uncompromising in the ways I ...more

This book is edited by John Piper and Justin Taylor and has some topnotch Reformed pastor/theologians contributing: David Wells, Voddie Baucham, D. A. Carson, Tim Keller, Mark Driscoll, and John Piper.It is a great addition to the library of anyone who wants to put Christ above all things in this postmodern world. At the end of the book there are two different discussions lead by Justin Taylor that help even more to flesh out their theology particularly in regards to the emergent church. The boo ...more

This is probably the most scholarly book I've read to date. I had to google some of the words. I feel smarter now. I have a much deeper understanding of the supremacy of Christ, compared with our postmodern culture. Christ has what people are looking for. The Bible contains timeless truth. The church just needs to get better at communicating this to post modern ears. I highly recommend this to anyone interested in understanding Christianity that is both Orthodox and relevant. Each chapter is wri ...more

This was a breath of fresh air. The men who wrote this book have great insight into the Postmodern world and explain their ideas with intellect and with tact. I enjoyed this read because it put into terms many of those things I've thought about but couldn't articulate. Great stuff if you have a desire to engage our culture for Christ.

Great summary of that DG conference. Each speaker has their own view but I continually found myself challenged too share the Gospel on the home front. A big reminder that personal testimony paired with Scripture is probably the best postmodern witnessing tool.

Great book by some of the top christian leaders and speakers today. Pulled from their talks at the '06 Desiring God Conference, each chapter can be read as an independently. These men do a great job of explaining how postmodernism is changing the world.

This book is a compilation of many different pastors across the country talking about the attack on truth and how to effectively point to the truth which is only in Christ Jesus in this postmodern world. Great read!
Jul 23, 2011 Kurt rated it it was ok  ·  review of another edition
Some of the essays were much less effective than others (Wells was a little too dry and philosophical for me, and Baucham's political references sounded wrong), but this is an alright book overall. I can't think of a situation in which I would recommend it with any enthusiasm, though.
Jonathan Cavett

No new information here, but it is the sound reformed theology that one would expect from these faithful men.
Aaron Carlberg
This is an excellent book you should all read. The chapters by Voddie Baucham and Mark Driscol are wonderful.

Good read - compilations of several different authors, all writing towards a common theme of the "centrality and absolute supremacy of Jesus Christ."

“If there is not radical, concrete growth in humble love towards everyone (even your enemies), you don’t really know you are a sinner saved by grace. And if there is not radical, concrete growth in confidence and joy (even in difficulties), you don’t really know you are a sinner saved by grace.
- Timothy Keller”
“Jesus is not honored most by the exploration of various christologies, any more than your wife would be honored by your indecision concerning her character. Jesus is honored by our knowing and treasuring him for who he really is. He is a real person. A fact. A fixed, unchanging reality in the universe, independent of our feelings. Our feelings about him do not make him what he is. Our feelings about him reflect the value of what we think he has. And if our knowledge of him is wrong, to that degree our enjoyment of him will be no honor to the real Jesus. Our joy displays his glory when it's a reflex of seeing him for who he really is.” 2 likes
