From the Author:

"Don't Think, Just Believe"? That's the mantra in many circles today--whether the church, the classroom, the boardroom, or the media.
 
Nancy Pearcey, bestselling and critically acclaimed author, provides a reality check. In Finding Truth, she offers five powerful principles that penetrate to the core of any worldview to uncover its deepest motivations and weigh its claims.
 
A former agnostic, Pearcey unmasks the presumed certainties of atheism, secularism, and other God substitutes. She 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.
 
Pearcey's bestselling Total Truth made the case for Christianity as a comprehensive worldview. Now Finding Truth shows that Christianity provides a unique strategy for testing truth claims, responding critically yet respectfully to competing worldviews.
 
What Do You Mean, Atheism Is a "God Substitute"?
Atheist websites like to claim, "Atheism is not a belief. Atheism is merely the lack of a belief in God or gods." But no one can think without some starting point.  Most atheists propose matter or nature as the ultimate reality, the cause and source of everything else. That is what functions as their God substitute.
 
Finding Truth demonstrates that every secular philosophy makes an idol out of some part of the created order, turning it into a false absolute. But false gods are too small to give dignity and value to human life. They lead inevitably to inhumanity and violence. History is replete with the broken lives and shattered communities that result from following counterfeit gods, whether Nazism, Communism, materialism, or postmodernism.
 
Insight into the dynamics of idolatry gives readers the skills to identify and critique the idols at the heart of the isms competing for allegiance in today's pluralistic, multicultural world.
 
How Can I Be Sure? A Real-World Training Manual
Drawing on her own experience as an agnostic, Nancy Pearcey is a sure guide to answering the questions that trouble many young people today. Studies confirm that the age when people are most likely to reject Christianity is in the late high school and early college years. And the reason they give most frequently is that they could not get answers to their doubts and questions.
 
Finding Truth demonstrates that a Christian worldview gives answers that are both true and testable. The bedrock truths that everyone wants and needs--from atheists like Richard Dawkins to hip hop artists like Lecrae--are uniquely found in historic Christianity.
 
With her trademark clarity, Pearcey bring themes to life with personal stories and real-world examples.  Finding Truth has a built-in study guide, making it an ideal training manual for schools, colleges, seminaries, homeschools, and church groups.
