Item description for Anabaptist Theology in Face of Postmodernity: A Proposal for the Third Millennium (C. Henry Smith Series, vol. 2) by J. Denny Weaver...

Drawing on postmodern as well as black, feminist, and womanist insights, Weaver shows that peace-oriented Anabaptist-Mennonite thought contains seeds of a theology that is biblical but poses an alternative to the theology of Christendom, which accommodates violence.

Reviews - What do customers think about Anabaptist Theology in Face of Postmodernity: A Proposal for the Third Millennium (C. Henry Smith Series, vol. 2)?

I was hoping for more  Oct 15, 2005
In what is something of a refreshing change for conservate(ish) protestant theology Weaver does not statrt with a lengthy discussion on the pro and cons of postmodernism; he simply grants it as given.

Weaver's central thesis is that Mennonite thought - (while the title says anabaptist Weaver only really ever discusses Mennonites)- has followed a "Presumed Theology-in-General" on which mennonite distinctives (eg, non-violence) are added. A prime example of this would be "orthodox" creedal christianity. Weaver basically spents the majority of the book how this approach has been the mainstay of mennonite theology from the sixteenth century to the present.

Weaver suggests that this approach is a discontinuity to the Gospel meaning Mennonites implictly support Violence and the Christendom mindet Christendom by adopting this general approach. Weaver suggest that in a postmodern approach theology should reject this historical theology-in-general approach and focusses on a particular theology in which non-violence is central.

I certainly think Weaver is on to something and his comments of the influence of christendom theology on the peace churches is an important one. Elsewhere, (in his book the "Non-violent Atonement") Weaver has gone some way to doing this. However, this book really amounts to asking a question without really giving a real answer. A lot more substantive theological work should have been done here to prove his point particulalrly as most of this just repeats work he has done in other contexts. My advice would be to read Weaver's "The Non-Violent Atonement" instead.
