Prescient words. . .

Though written almost 30 years ago, the words of Robert Jenson are truly prescient.  He began his essay in First Things by saying that the world has lost its story: 

What if these presumptions are losing hold? I will in this essay follow the fashion of referring to the present historical moment as the advent of a “post modern” world, because, as I am increasingly persuaded, the slogan does point to something real, a world that has no story and so cannot entertain promises.

You can read the essay here.  I will not add to his words but I encourage you to read them and to see if they do not accurately describe the world in which we live and work.
