Item description for The Postmodern Life Cycle by Friedrich Schweitzer...
Overview "Friedrich Schweitzer is knowledgeable of both European and American cultural shifts into postmodernity. This well-written account of the impacts of media saturation, the relativization of religious authority, and the rapid global emergence of varieties of spiritual orientations and practices, is the first of its kind. Schweitzer's knowledge of practices of faith and his mastery of the available research literature on posmodern conditions make this work indispensable for religious leaders, students of postmodernity, and a broad reading public. A great achievement!"
Publishers Description 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.

The Postmodern Life Cycle Jan 17, 2007
Schweitzer has taken on the daunting task of addressing the understudied postmodern life cycle. This text is not one to curl up with on a rainy day. It is a solid resource for those seeking to understand the practical theology in today's world. Schweitzer draws on other theorists such as Erik Erikson and H. Richard Niebuhr for information concerning the different ages and developmental stages studied in modernity. This text is a core text for studying faith across the life cycle, and attempts to explain some of the impact of post modernity upon people in various periods of the life cycle.
