        Swamidass’s passion for unsettling our assumptions about faith and science extends far beyond the confines of one book, however. This is a project over which he has labored for some time and one that he intends to continue far into the future.

        The terminology and dialectics of postmodernism are daunting, but Radical Orthodoxy uncovers the basic line of analysis: violence gives the world its shape and holds it together. Words have determinate meaning, and therefore retain influence in our lives, argues postmodern theory, because their meanings are enforced by the exercise of power.   In a new book likely to rekindle fierce controversy, psychologist Robert Plomin argues that genes largely shape our personalities and that the latest science is too compelling to ignore.

They know that Orthodoxy is old school and traditional, and they assume that one cannot simply smile up at an Orthodox Sunday school teacher and admit one’s belief in evolution — not without getting an earful about Satan’s science.
