But when Penner describes the postmodern Christian witness, it is almost always spoken of in abstraction, i. e. “Actual Christianity means being Christian in specific ways: trusting, praying, believing, loving, witnessing” (90); “I want to pattern our apologetic efforts after apostles who do not ground their message in their own genius but inn a transcendent word from God” (82).
