Forecast of a Post Modern Tidal Wave  Jul 10, 2004
Acting as a cultural meteorologist, Leonard Sweet wrote Soul Tsunami in 1999 as a forecast of the Post Modern tidal wave that was about to strike the shores of American Christendom. As he predicted, the wave has hit and has left many casualties in its wake. The church body count continues to rise, while wise leaders who prepared for it are thriving.

The book serves as an introduction to ministry in a Post Modern culture. At times he seems to be an apologist for Post Modernity. You probably won't always agree with the writer but he will give you a look into the mind of the culture. His presentation of the current ministry realities makes this a significant book and certainly worth the read.

Sweet is a chaotic, quirky, witty, and sometimes annoying writer. If you want a real experience, listen to the audio book. It is a unique and an attention keeping creation. In fact, I'd recommend the audio version over the written effort.

A post-evangelical book worth reading!  Mar 2, 2002
In the United States, there is a growing circle of pastors, writers, and theologians who could be labeled as "post-evangelical." These are the folks who have begun to talk very loudly about the failure of evangelical Christianity over the last several decades to do anything very worthwhile (and in most cases to do much harm).

Within this circle, Dr. Sweet clearly stands out as the premiere rhetorician, and soulTsunami is his best book.

The book has many weaknesses. Like all the post-evangelicals, Dr. Sweet fails to develop any significant new theological concepts. This is largely, I think, because the post-evangelical discussion has as of yet failed to rid itself completely of the rigid theological presuppositions inspired by decades of ahistorical and sociopathic evangelical thinking. "In-group/out-group" binary thinking (i.e. saved/not-saved, Christian/non-Christian, mercy/judgement, heaven/hell), although in principle brought into question by post-evangelical thinking, nevertheless continue to shape the content of the discourse in an unsatisfactory way.

Nevertheless, if one must read a book by a post-evangelical, soulTsunami is the one to read. Although Dr. Sweet has no new theology to offer (which does not make the book very useful in helping Christians to advance to the leading edge of the cultural discussion), he does a brilliant job of describing the dimensions of postmodern space. So the book is very useful in helping evangelical Christians to realize how desperately out of touch they are with culture and how completely their little religious experiment has failed.

Of particular value (and of the most theological significance) is Dr. Sweet's attempt to bring politics and sociology back into the religious discussion. He comes very close to saying, for instance, that driving a fossil-fuel-guzzling sport-utility vehicle three blocks to the convenience store is a sin, and this is precisely the sort of thing that evangelical Christians in the United States need to hear if they are ever going to break away from their arrogant nationalism and narcissistic ignorance.

So although this book is not a "post-modern theology" it is an excellent prolegomenon to post-modern theology. And although it is not quite the prophetic call to repentance, accountability, and historical thinking that is needed, it is not a bad start.
