Description

Don't Think, Just Believe?
That's the mantra in many circles today--whether the church, the classroom, the campus, or the voting booth.

Time for a Reality Check
Nancy Pearcey, bestselling and critically acclaimed author, offers fresh tools to break free from presumed certainties and test them against reality. In Finding Truth, she explains five powerful principles that penetrate to the core of any worldview--secular or religious--to uncover its deepest motivations and weigh its claims. A former agnostic, Pearcey demonstrates that a robust Christian worldview matches reality--that it is not only true but attractive, granting higher dignity to the human person than any alternative. Finding Truth displays Pearcey's well-earned reputation for clear and cogent writing. She brings themes to life with personal stories and real-world examples. And the study guide in Finding Truth was shaped by questions from readers like you, from teens to college professors, and is ideal for individual or group study.

Review quote

"Finding Truth is a seminar between two covers, providing depth of information and guidance toward an informed faith through the Study Guide offered at the end. Its goal--helping the reader to communicate Christian convictions--leads the Christian to think, to study, and to interact with ideas. Sure to facilitate powerful discussion, the study questions at the end will develop critical thinking skills and flex spiritual muscles. Pearcey's wonderfully readable style makes it a resource for anyone serious about discovering truth. Woven throughout are stories of people such as Dr. Michael Egnor (a leading brain surgeon), acclaimed hip-hop artist Lecrae Moore, and Pearcey's own journey to faith, that make the book fascinating and real."--Marilyn Stewart "Defend Magazine" (3/17/2015 12:00:00 AM)
