Gavin Hyman explores in depth two antithetical schools of postmodern theology--the "radical orthodoxy" of John Milbank and the "nihilist textualism" of Don Cupitt. Hyman critiques Milbank's influential project from a postmodern perspective, and then points out the major difficulties with Cupitt's approach. Finally, he explores the work of Mark C. Taylor and Michael de Certeau to articulate a "third way" that leads beyond the responses of both Cupitt and Milbank.
Midwestern Journal of Theology(2005)"Hyman has done a thorough job of exploringsome of the theological extremes of postmodernism;however, his middle road is still too far removedfrom classical orthodoxy for the evangelical pastor and missionary."--Rodney Harrison, Midwestern Baptist TheologicalSeminary
