Reviews - What do customers think about Total Truth: Liberating Christianity from Its Cultural Captivity (Study Guide Edition)?
Pseudo Science Dec 21, 2008
This book is a desperate attempt by the Religious Right to discredit evolution. The fundamentalists know very well that with evolution there is no fall of mankind (Since it evolved maneas not born perfect) and therefore no need for redemption. The whole theological underpinnings of Christianity crumble. This book is not even worth a skim and should be tossed.
Discover the difference between Conservative thinking and Liberal thinking Aug 25, 2008
This book displays in graphic detail why even Liberal Christians and those in Politics think the way they do and why Conservative Christians and those in Politics think.It put into words what I have always thought. Thank you Nancy!!!
A Book Borrowed, Soon to be Bought Aug 23, 2008
In a postmodern age of conflicting World-views and relegated religious values, Pearcy's book hits hard with pinpoint accuracy. A diagnosis of modern thought, the history which led to it, and the schism of ideas that we now accept in the public sphere, Total Truth is not just a deconstruction of modern naturalism, it draws a picture of a completed Christian Worldview. I borrowed this book from a friend, but will soon add it to my library. I highly recommend "Total Truth."
Insightful research on a present-day dilemma Aug 17, 2008
As a Christian, I have found myself at odds with the Christian culture without fully understanding why. Nancy Pearcey has done the research and answered a lot of my intuitive questions. Rather than expressing a judgmental opinion, she has sought the facts to build understanding which can lead to a wise response. This is a right-on book for today.
A valuable contribution to the importance of Christianity, culturally! Mar 30, 2008
This book intelligibly offers why Christianity should and can prevail regardless of its cultural context. Pearcey is a well-qualified author to write this sort of book. Consider this book to be a handbook to modern times and Christianity's involvement to the most important issues of our day. For a thorough "manifesto" that can lead contemporary evangelicals into the contemporary cultural discussion, along with being a worthwhile companion to TOTAL TRUTH, I heartily recommend JP Moreland's KINGDOM TRIANGLE book (www.kingdomtriangle.com).
