typical post modern christianity,
This review is from: Being Christian: Baptism, Bible, Eucharist, Prayer (Kindle Edition)
This book describes the outward "signs" of belonging to a club, but not the heart stuff of Christianity. It was a waste of money for me.

I'm just wondering if you actually read the book? The whole point of it is it takes the "outward signs" - baptism, bible reading, eucharist and prayer - that are common to most Christian traditions, and uses them to get to the "heart stuff"; identification with Christ, having our worldview renewed by actively engaging with the biblical story, thanksgiving as God's people, and connecting with God in Christ through prayer in a way that brings about transformation. I don't usually comment here, except that this was one of the best expositions I have encountered of the heart-stuff of Christianity. Also the main resource he draws on apart from Scripture is the writings of the early church fathers, so I fail to see how it is typically post-modern.
