Don't think, just believe?That's the mantra in many circles today - whether the church, the classroom, the campus, or the voting booth. Nancy Pearcey, best-selling 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.

Resonated with me as the author based her argument on the kind of source material I read many years back.
She leans heavily on Francis Schaeffer and CS Lewis, two if my favourite apologists of the twentieth century.
Also, the propositions were well-argued and opposition views thoroughly dismantled.
"A Must Read!!!"
It's not; but a great compliment to it...
The scope and depth of coverage
she did an awesome job
I had an epiphany
A must read for Christian parents and especially college-bound children!
"Foundational Truth That is Essential"
This is an excellent book that I would recommend to anyone looking to establish a foundation for your faith and biblical worldview!
"Great book. Full of thoughtful analysis & insight!"
An insightful, clear thinking and practical guide to the field of worldview from Nancy Pearcey, author of Total Truth and Saving Leonardo. This book continues the trend set by her previous books by far surpassing my expectations. Pearcey is a gifted writer and thinker and this book is a powerful aid to those struggling to navigate the questions arising around truth in the context of numerous conflicting fundamental worldviews.
The narrator does a fine job in delivery yet there are a couple critical mistakes in pronunciation, particularly in at least two spots when (a variation on) the word "deify" is read as "defy". This changes the meaning those phrases and as a listener is confusing unless you catch the substitution.
However, those minor issues do not outweigh the valuable insight and clarity of thought in the rest of the book.
I highly recommend this book! It is well worth the read!
"A Pale Second to Total Truth"
No. It doesn't really answer the questions it poses that are not unanswerable by the other side. It doesn't offer anything we haven't heard before. This conversation seems to go in circles.
Yes. I really liked Total Truth.
"well worth it. .."
easy to understand, easy to follow and the narrator was great... I didn't waste my money with this book..
"Great Apologetics Book"
Read this book for a better understanding of Christian and atheistic worldviews. very clear and understandable.
