Date: November 04, 2010 | Author: Albert Kienle
Postmodernism is re-inventing society. Its effects are seen in the family, in education, in government, in business, and the church. Not one of us has escaped its footprints.
Postmodernism is dangerous because it affects our way of thinking. What we think determines what we believe, what we believe determines what we...
