This thesis is loosely based on the main arguments raised by postmodern and orthodox theologians as discussed in the book, Christianity and the Postmodern Turn. However, it is not my intention to interact with the book. Myron Penner (2005:29) correctly stated that the crux of the matter was the concept of truth, and whether Christianity could be said to be true in a meaningful way after making the postmodern turn. But what is truth? More specifically, how does the postmodern claim to truth impact orthodox Christian beliefs? In order to understand the issues, let alone answer the questions, we need to investigate the theory of truth or epistemology Therefore, the main thrust of this thesis is the survey of contemporary epistemology, and in particular, the critique of postmodern epistemology.
