The Postmodern Life Cycle
Challenges for Church and Theology
Schweitzer’s goal in this book is to explore what postmodernity actually means for theology and how theology and the church may respond to its challenges. He focuses on the life cycle as it is changing with the advent of postmodernity, looking sequentially at segments of the life cycle using different lenses: modernity, postmodernity, and responses from church and theology. Schweitzer concludes with a theology of the life cycle.
Friedrich L. Schweitzer is professor of practical theology at the University of Tubingen in Germany.
