Item description for The Truth War: Fighting for Certainty in an Age of Deception by john macarthur...
Overview Best-selling author John MacArthur reclaims the unwavering certainty of God's Truth and anchors Christians in God's eternal Word.
Right now, Truth is under attack, and much is at stake. Christians are caught in the crossfire of alternative Christian histories, emerging faulty texts, and a cultural surge to eliminate absolute Truth altogether. As a result, many churches and Christians have been deceived. Worse still, they propagate the deception that poses itself as Truth! In The Truth War, John MacArthur reclaims the unwavering certainty of God's Truth and anchors Christians in God's eternal Word.
Right now, truth is under attack, and much is at stake. Perhaps no one in America is more passionate than John MacArthur about exposing those who are mounting this attack―especially those bringing the assault right into the church.
There is no middle ground―no safe zone for the uncommitted in this war. The battle for truth is raging, and this book reveals:
The pitfalls of postmodern thinking
Why the Emerging Church Movement is inherently flawed
Past skirmishes in the Truth War and their effect on the Church
The importance of truth and certainty in a postmodern society
How to identify and address the errors and false teachings smuggled into churches
" The postmodern age] is the age of no truth, an age that has reached a point of deadly fatigue when it comes to facing the truth―a generation that no longer believes truth can be known. Dr. John MacArthur knows better, and he is armed with the courage to confront this age with a bold defense of truth. . . . His argument is compelling, his defense of truth is brilliant, and his concern for the church is evident on every page. The evangelical church desperately needs this book, and it arrives just in time." ―R. Albert Mohler Jr., President, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

Reviews - What do customers think about Truth War?
Charles Spurgeon of our day Apr 22, 2010
A much needed message has come in the form of this book. Though this theme of standing up for the truth of Scripture is timeless, right now it seems more of a novelty considering the apathy (and even lies) that have brainwashed modern day Christianity. The last days is filled with truth twisters, and this book serves as a wonderful lesson for us Christians.
It examines many aspects of the truth theme, recounting the modern day prosperity/emerging movements, the history of heresy involving Arianism and Syballism, as well as the trends that spiritual apathy that has caused many Christians to compromise with deadly lies, especially involving salvation.
This is one book I would recommend. It is very important, especially if you are a pastor, Bible study teacher, or an active evangelist. This is a message that cannot be ignored.
The Battle for True Truth Apr 3, 2010
It's not hard to see that the battle for "Truth" rages on and on and has since the Garden of Eden. Moreover many people (the churched and unchurched) today deny that certain truth exists, although they are certain of that! Yes truth deniers are self-nullifying irrationalists however they remain a powerful force inasmuch as much of the Western Media affirms similar epistemic nonsense.
Herein pastor/scholar/teacher John MacArthur (pastor Grace Community Church, president of the Master's College and has written more than six dozen books) demonstrates that not only is true truth under attack, the battle thereof is essential to recognize and engage. "The Truth War," is a potent tool the writer has bequeathed to the Christian community that will help morally arouse believers to enter the battlefield as peaceful truth loving apologists.
The Truth War provides the budding cultural warrior and apologist with ways to:
- Discover and affirm certainty - Witness to those stuck in self-stultifying postmodern trends - Confront heresy and apostasy - Employ proper spiritual warfare - Improve your discernment abilities - Recognize and deal with the moral, theological, and philosophical errors and false teachers within the church.
And with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved (2Thes. 2:10).
This makes for a fine entry level apologetic book that will stir the hearts of Christians to embrace a life of apologetics and evangelism while pursuing higher level apologetics books and resources.
"And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free" (Jesus: John 8:32). There Are Moral Absolutes: How to Be Absolutely Sure That Christianity Alone Supplies And for the Largest List of Self-refuting Statements ever compiled with the explanation of those errors, see: God Does Exist!: Defending the faith using presuppositional apologetics, evidence, and the impossibility of the contrary
Interesting book! Mar 27, 2010
Book arrived quickly, and in great shape! I'm enjoying it a lot - makes sense!
THE WHOLE TRUTH, AND NOTHING BUT !!! Feb 23, 2010
John MacArthur hits a homerun with this one! It's refreshing to know that there are people out there, like John, who are still headstrong about sharing the truth and not sugar-coating the consequences of living a non-repetant life of unbelief. Read this book, and then share it with everybody you know!
Timeless subject for every Christian soldier Jan 10, 2010
John MacArthur is known for writing some of the most important books for the modern Christian era, and the Truth War is another in his canon. It's one of his greatest works, and speaks on a topic that needs to be addressed and internalized by all Christians living on God's green earth.
I heard different views regarding how accurate MacArthur's interpretation of the emergent church really is. But nonetheless, his views on upholding truth should be an important practice for Christians. As much as there are emerging churches out there that are doing God's work in an ethical manner, it's undeniable that there are also lost Christians who have been deceived by prosperity gospel preaching churches, heretic organizations, or even overly liberal emerging churches. They've never truly been born again, or are following a false version of the gospel. In this case, we must help them.
This book explores the importance of standing up for truth and defending it with great biblical passages, examples, and stories from past history. If you truly have a love for the word of God, then you will fight for it, no matter how "fundamentalist" or exacting you may appear. People's eternity is at stake, and we should always remember that fact.
In all, I highly recommend this book. It's one that I would give out to every Christian if I had the money. It's good for both evangelists, bible study teachers, and any Christian willing to expand God's Kingdom in this world.
