Jim Norwine, Thomas D. Anderson. Jim Norwine, Linda Ford Winans. These patterns give rise to a geographer's quest o. More).

Jim Norwine, Jonathan M. Smith. The most salient feature of the postmodern world, believe geographers Jim Norwine and Jonathan M. Smith, is a new set of beliefs, attitudes, and assumptions that are not yet well developed or widely diffused, so that few if any postmodern people are entirely of the new world or the old. People are "perplexed," their values inchoate. Worldview Flux defines and describes the nature of perplexity and documents the shifts and changes of the postmodern world that lead to it, attending especially to the ways changes are experienced in particular places and human communities.

The Guilt of Hollow Men: Global Warming as Postmodern Apocalypse.

Jim Norwine In this book, an international team of environmental and social scientists explain two powerful current change-engines and how their effects, and our responses to them.

In this chapter, we argue that Europe and North America, and to a lesser extent other areas, are in the midst of a major change in worldviews, what we term a Culture-shift. In moving from one way of being to another way of being, world citizens, especially young adults, are moving from one set of values to another set of values. In this book, an international team of environmental and social scientists explain two powerful current change-engines and how their effects, and our responses to them, will transform Earth and humankind into the 22nd-century (.

Congregational leaders who recognize Kitchens' description of congregational life today will appreciate his pointed and realistic analysis of fundamental shifts in ministry that have taken place in our postmodern, post-Christian, and postdenominational world

Congregational leaders who recognize Kitchens' description of congregational life today will appreciate his pointed and realistic analysis of fundamental shifts in ministry that have taken place in our postmodern, post-Christian, and postdenominational world. Kitchens also demonstrates that we need to create a different sort of church if we are to be faithful to the gospel in this new cultural setting. He addresses in detail how these contextual shifts invite us to change our ministry in four arenas of congregational life: worship, Christian formation, mission, and leadership.

In geography, the spatial truths one endeavors to recognize are unfolding patterns in the dynamic relations between Homo sapiens and Earth. These patterns give rise to a geographer's quest of ever-receding horizons of understanding. This book is a collection of interconnected essays and talks which pursue the pattern of our age, a time of the most profound disjunctions of intellectual and spiritual worldviews since the nova of scientific knowledge. The author observes an imminent collision between a pair of antithetical "certainties," the modern primacy of individual freedom and the traditional primacy of the collective. The author aspires to the reconciliation of antinomies, a meeting of themes, and a collage of philosophically geographical observations rather than a mere patchwork. His presentation reflects the underlying philosophical tensions inherent in the postmodern worldview.Contents: Foreword; Preamble; Introduction; The Tao of Geography; A Map is Not the Territory: The Virtue of Reality; Geographer's Quest; Postmodern American Pop Myths; Beyond Kitsch; The Fourth Paradigm; Lost in Cyberland: The Last Texians; Postface; Appendix: Wanderings; References; Index.
