In this enlightening narrative, Mann skillfully weaves together elements of postmodern philosophy and Christian theology, crafting a compelling story that resonates with readers of all backgrounds. Through the experiences of the main character, readers are confronted with the struggles of living in a society where truth is subjective and moral absolutes are questioned.

As the pilgrim encounters various characters and traverses through symbolic landscapes, the book delves into profound questions about the nature of truth, the role of faith in a skeptical world, and the significance of Christian virtues such as perseverance, humility, and grace. Along the way, Mann provides insightful commentary on contemporary issues, cultural trends, and the challenges facing Christians today.

"The Postmodern Pilgrim's Progress" serves as a poignant reminder that the Christian journey is not exempt from the complexities of the postmodern era. Through this allegorical tale, readers are encouraged to grapple with their own doubts, confront the prevailing cultural narratives, and find renewed strength and hope in their faith. With its engaging storytelling and profound insights, this book is a valuable resource for Christian readers seeking to navigate the tumultuous waters of the postmodern world while remaining steadfast in their Christian walk. 
Ryan Fleming is a young agnostic reeling from his brother's death. Though he is deeply angry with God, he makes good on a promise he made to his brother in the final moments of his life: to visit a church at least once. But shortly after his arrival, the slick megachurch's shoddily installed video projector falls on his head--sending Ryan through a wormhole into another world. After a narrow escape from the City of Destruction, where the comfortably numb townspeople are oblivious to the fire and brimstone falling like bombs in their midst and destroying their homes, Ryan finds himself on a quest: To make it back to his own universe, he must partner with a woman named Faith to awaken a long-sleeping King--the World-Maker who can make all things new. Replete with characters ripped straight from the twenty-first century American church--including Radical, Mr. Satan, the Smiling Preacher, and others--this sometimes-humorous, always-insightful trek parallels Christian's fictional journey in Pilgrim's Progress. Prepare to laugh, cry, cringe, feel convicted, and ultimately be changed by the time the story ends. The Postmodern Pilgrim's Progress is brought to you by Kyle Mann and Joel Berry, the two comedic minds behind The Babylon Bee--which, with 250,000 newsletter subscribers and more than fifteen million page views per month, is the most popular satirical news site on the planet.
