Do We Plug In or Pull the Plug?

In an era being described by some as post-postmodern, we find ourselves surrounded on all sides by a perpetual revolution—an indiscriminate discarding of the old in relentless pursuit of the new. But, in the age of “infinite progress,” a few brave souls have been bold enough to ask, “Just what exactly is it that we are progressing toward? And how will we know when we’ve arrived?” Yet the vast majority seem content to leave these questions unanswered, propelled forward by the universally accepted faith of modernity. Illusions of Modernity offers a brief look at some of the unexamined assumptions behind the mythic quest for the “just now” in hopes of providing direction for those desiring to take the leap off of the conveyor belt of constant change and into the enduring culture of the God “who does not change like shifting shadows.”
