In The Intolerance of Tolerance, however, questioning tolerance--or, at least, contemporary understandings of tolerance--is exactly what D. A . Carson does.
Carson traces the subtle but enormous conceptual and cultural shift in the way we have come to understand "tolerance" in recent years--from defending the rights of those who hold different beliefs to affirming all beliefs as equally valid and correct. He looks back at the history of this shift and discusses its implications for culture today, especially its bearing on democracy, discussions about good and evil, and Christian truth claims.
Using real-life examples that will sometimes arouse laughter and sometimes make the blood boil, Carson argues not only that the "new tolerance" is socially dangerous and intellectually debilitating but also that it actually leads to genuine intolerance of all who struggle to hold fast to their beliefs.

Nothing is more intolerant than a tolerance that requires the absence of all convictions. Don Carson thoughtfully shows how tolerance, once defined as respecting others' right to hold differing perspectives, has morphed into a pervasive insistence that no one should hold firm convictions. The consequence of such a shift is a challenge to biblical faith that needs a biblical response, which Carson ably provides. In doing so, he gives the biblical basis for true tolerance in a just society and shows the inevitable tyranny of tolerance ill-defined. Not to hear and heed him is to enter a nightmarish world in which zeal to discern truth is replaced by zeal to keep anyone from claiming anything is really true.
President, Covenant Theological Seminary, St. Louis
Sadly, the debate about Christianity has shifted from 'is it true' to 'was anyone offended.' The Bible assures us that the gospel message will be offensive, although the gospel messenger should be loving. Carson has done a masterful job of helping Christian leaders understand how to navigate a cultural context that is increasingly tolerant of seemingly everything but Christian belief.
Pastor, Mars Hill Church, Seattle

This book is a must read for all (Christians and Non-Christians alike), but especially the officers of the Church. The meaning of tolerance in our culture today is to restrict free thinking and promotes the "watering down" of Scripture. It is tied to the so called "political correctness" of the day and too many have bought the lie. D.A. Carson does an exceptional job of walking us through the PC maze and puts things into perspective.
