Thoughtful Adaptations to Change
Authentic Christian Faith in Postmodern Times
Edwin F. Drewlo
Western culture has changed radically in the last fifty years. Death seems less dreadful, sexuality less sacred, and humanity less dignified. Reason has yielded to passion, and science often to personal opinion. Philosophically and culturally, the West has slowly moved from modernism to postmodernism. It’s not surprising that this shift has also radically affected the Christian church. The doctrinal confidence of the past 350 years has given way to greater levels of theological confusion. But while the new era thrives on religious pluralism, a refreshing desire has arisen among many Christians to experience and share the unchanging good news of Jesus more authentically, accurately, and passionately. This book is written to help ordinary people understand the nature of the transition that has occurred, and to inspire them to allow the gospel itself to shape life and church ministry in the midst of this great change.
Having served as a pastor in four churches with the Christian and Missionary Alliance in Canada for most of his adult life, Dr. Ed Drewlo writes from a pastoral perspective. He has an undergraduate degree in Sociology from the University of Saskatchewan, a Master of Divinity from what is now Ambrose University in Calgary, and a Doctor of Ministry degree from Trinity International University in Chicago. In 2006, he established Second Wind Ministries, a non-profit registered charity with a view to assist pastors and others struggling with transition. Since that time, Ed has also served as a transition pastor and consultant to more than a dozen churches and ministries in Western Canada. Ed is married to Carolyn, and together they have four married children and ten grandchildren.
