Josh Wiley is describing the so-called "Post-Theonomy" and "Post-Reconstruction" schools among Christian Reformed circles, after a question from Gideon Strauss, talk from Dave Hegeman and general chatter about the moves of Andrew Sandlin, those in Moscow, etc.
I agree about the things that mark the move as a move, but disagree about what is being moved past.
The developments that came with Tyler and Moscow were (much needed) moves towards a focus on culture instead of politics and political issues, and a move away from the Presbyterian and towards the Episcopal, at least in an acceptance of liturgical and sacramental thought.
Perhaps this is the Post-Chalcedon or the Post-Rushdooney movement, but I do not see any rejection of the ideas in their fundamental statements. I see a fuller view of the world, certainly, and a less political and more long-term commitment to change. I see some methodological adjustments. I see a lot of movement away from the identification with Calvinism and the desire to find a place within Christianity’s traditional, orthodox, and catholics forms.
But this is in addition to the Reconstructionist planks of Presuppositionalism, Theonomy, Postmillenialism and Covenentalism. My objection is to the terms themselves, is with the prefix "post." These moves are Post-Rushdooney and Post-Chalcedon, but none of those involved in these circles are repudiating Reconstructionism, so far as I know. They may reject the name (for reasons of reputation) but they’ve not come out and said: "That was ridiculous, I've grown up now."
And both moves, the move towards the traditional and liturgical ecclesiology and the move out from politics into culture, are contained in the roots of those four characteristics of Reconstructionism.
The thing that drove the entire movement was the Van Tillian case about t the Myth of Neutrality. The extensions of this have moved past Chalcedon, but all of these "post" men—Doug Wilson/Jones, Andrew Sandlin, Ray Sutton, James Jordan, Scott Hahn, Gary North—are still active in the extending.
