Postmodern thought has now made inroads into what until very recently, were conservative, Biblical Christian circles, all with the smiling face of “social justice.” The rapidity with which these deadly ideas have spread from the culture at large into churches and Christian organizations is truly shocking – all with an ever-present progressive political undertone that has become noticeable as the movement has gained steam.

While the most influential French postmodernists, Derrida and Foucault, will not be immediately familiar to many citizens of western culture, their collective concepts have wreaked havoc amongst the socio-political and educational landscape in North America over the past decade.  As our secular educational institutions have become battlegrounds to “tear down the patriarchy” and to “root out white privilege,” this same battle has emerged within the most conservative of strongholds of the Christian church catching many congregants and seminarians unaware.
