Taken from the introduction:
"There seems to be a general agreement that we are living in a time of transition between two competing worldviews: modernity and postmodernity. The exact nature of each of these worldviews and the extent/permanence of the “paradigm shift” is much debated in current scholarship. It is not intended here to examine postmodernism as a philosophical framework or to enter into the debate as to the extent of its influence in academia. The concern in this paper is to focus on its impact as a cultural phenomenon in the lives of ordinary Australians. In this context, the cultural shift is also aligned with the reality of a post-Christian society. There is no intention to investigate either phenomenon exhaustively but simply to make some general comments in order to provide a setting for a discussion on the challenge of articulating the doctrine of holiness in Australia today."

This edition offers a broad range of educational as well as theological writings. With so many of our writers dedicated to the Global Theology Conference in Guatemala this time, we thought this edition might offer a bit more on cultural influences and education. Our section on “Insights into Educational Practice” may be a misnomer since the articles include excellent research concerning shifts in educational theory.
