This will stretch your traditional church vision

"I recommend Rebellion of Thought with no reservations. It puts forth a very clear understanding of the general mindset of our postmodern world. It is not about whether you like postmodernity or not, but its reality and how is surrounds us and the fundamentally different way that the western culture arbitrates what we accept as true and not true. It is critical of the institutional church denominations because our pews are filled with people who might have orthodox belief systems but don't live their lives congruent with the claims of Jesus. Veith is one of my favorite authors on the subject. This would be tremendous to view either with a group of secular Genxers, or with those who are entrenched in modernity and totally committed to our traditional church structures. The video production is totally postmodern-styled editing as well and the video communicats about as much as the audio track does. In all cases the video reinforces what is being said with strong clear immages. The discussion about relativism in morality being the only way to approach life is incapable of addressing the reality of objective evil that we see. All voice are not worthy of a seat at the table of discussion and are not of equally compelling morality and just contextualized. Scenes from Hitler reinforce this point dramatically. Get a copy of this to watch if you care about authentic Christian faith and want to challenge your thinking outside the traditional boxes."

"Worth buying. Thought provoking. Helps you to understand not only what Modernism, Post Modernism and Relativism are, but also makes you think about what the future holds for a society that is believin there are no absolute truths."
Waste of money and time

"Arrogance is awash in this video. The 'postmodern' style in which it is filmed is really nothing more than self promotion. It's extremely annoying and distracting to the point of not being able to follow what's being said. Is there any real point to having three people involved in the speaking of the same sentence, other than to show how cutting edge the editors are? The only reason I bought this was because of D.A. Carson's name, but don't be fooled. The video is just about how avante garde and in tune with God's purpose for the church are the makers of the film. If only we had their spiritual discernment we could join them in looking down on the rest of the church. As it is, I think there is enough of that condescending, un-Christlike attitude already. I wonder if they think Jesus has given up on his church as well. Now there's a thought."
Rebellion of Thought ultimately criticizes and deconstructs
Midwest Book Review | Oregon, WI USA | 12/02/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Rebellion of Thought is a DVD assessment of the interplay between post-modern philosophy and religious belief. Post-modernism is the concept that there are quite literally no absolutes - what is "true" from one point of view is not necessarily true at all from another. The consequences of such thinking are far-reaching, both for organized religion and for society in general. How can believers in Jesus Christ express their faith in compelling ways, amid a modern generation that defies authority, code, and convention? What does it truly mean to love one's neighbor as oneself? Rebellion of Thought ultimately criticizes and deconstructs the flaws of post-modern thinking, while offering guidance and recommendations for parents and social leaders confronted by it. 75 minutes, color."
