Solomon's words from a famous passage of Ecclesiastes have been translated, "Vanity of vanities, all is vanity." But in Solomon among the Postmoderns, author Peter Leithart says those words are better translated as "Vapor of vapors, all is vapor," emphasizing that human life is fleeting. Leithart uses this theme, as well as the entire book of Ecclesiastes, to indicate how Solomon resonated with postmodernism. Exploring the strengths and limits of postmodernism, he displays how the theory reflects an important biblical theme: the elusiveness and instability of the world. But he goes on to show that biblical faith takes us beyond cynicism and despair, exploring Solomon's frequent call to "eat, drink, and rejoice." A skilled theologian and widely published author, Leithart writes for audiences including professors and students of philosophy, apologetics, biblical studies, and theology, as well as laypeople seeking a biblical view of postmodernism. Those familiar and unfamiliar with postmodernism will learn from the book's forthright exegetical approach, which is unique among the many books about postmodernism available today.
