Humorous, with a message Oct 31, 2000
My only regret is that this book was not available three years ago, when I started graduate school and had a class that looked extensively at post-modern theory. Horstman, in his wry witty way, critiques post-modernism, and in the process reaffirms the Truth about God without simply rejecting post-modernism out of hand.
Although most of his essays were humorous, the laughs came the loudest when he wasn't trying to make an especially deep point. His essay on summer commandments: to roughly paraphrase, "Bonk not thy brother with thy tennis racket, again I say, bonk not" -- was alone worth the price of the book.
