Further Reflections on the Potential Influence of Pietism on Postmodernism (Spring/Summer 2012)

In a 2011 Pietisten article, the Rev. Ryan Eikenbary-Barber provided a wonderful summary of Roger Olson’s lecture series on the potential common ground between Pietism and Postmodernism. Olson proposed three specific areas in which one might find the possibility of convergences between these two important cultural movements: epistemology, spirituality and ethics. I want to offer a few complementary thoughts about what I have understood as potential common ground epistemologically.
