Product Description

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, bestselling 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.

The study guide in Finding Truth was shaped by questions from readers like you, from teens to college professors, and is ideal for individual or group study.

Nancy Pearcey is author of the 2005 ECPA Gold Medallion Award winner Total Truth: Liberating Christianity from Its Cultural Captivity and the 2000 ECPA Gold Medallion Award winner (coauthored by Harold Fickett and Chuck Colson) How Now Shall We Live? Formerly an agnostic, Pearcey studied under Francis Schaeffer at L’Abri. She earned an MA from Covenant Theological Seminary and pursued further graduate work in History of Philosophy at the Institute for Christian Studies in Toronto. Heralded as "America’s pre-eminent evangelical Protestant female intellectual" (The Economist), Pearcey is professor and scholar in residence at Houston Baptist University.

Her earlier books include The Soul of Science and Saving Leonardo.

Editorial Reviews

"Pearcey promises that the principles she lays out will 'provide you with the tools to recognize what’s right and wrong with any worldview—and then to craft a biblically informed perspective that is both true and humane.'  She makes the promise and she delivers on it. Finding Truth is, all-in-all, a worthy successor to Total Truth."
—Challies.com

"Finding Truth is a seminar between two covers, providing depth of information and guidance toward an informed faith through the Study Guide offered at the end. Its goal—helping the reader to communicate Christian convictions—leads the Christian to think, to study, and to interact with ideas. Sure to facilitate powerful discussion, the study questions at the end will develop critical thinking skills and flex spiritual muscles. Pearcey’s wonderfully readable style makes it a resource for anyone serious about discovering truth. Woven throughout are stories of people such as Dr. Michael Egnor (a leading brain surgeon), acclaimed hip-hop artist Lecrae Moore, and Pearcey’s own journey to faith, that make the book fascinating and real."

"As Pearcey (author of the 2005 classic Total Truth) so ably points out, both explicitly and through poignant real-life stories, "finding truth" is not a dry intellectual exercise ... She leads the reader step-by-step through these principles in an accessible way, providing concrete examples ... This book would make a fantastic graduation gift for high school seniors, especially those on their way to college ... I hope that Christians might pass on copies of Finding Truth to non-Christians, who might find Pearcey’s analysis of secular worldviews convincing and her presentation of Christianity appealing."
Christianity Today

"Scholarly but fully accessible ... Pearcey surveys the various idols upon which the various schools of modernism and postmodernism have built their systems: reason, imagination, economics, matter ... Just as Paul warns that those who serve idols will exchange the glory of the immortal God for the images of animals, so Pearcey warns that worldviews that begin with a false staring point inevitably end up reducing man from a free individual made in God’s image to a determined and dehumanized unit in nature ... A full, carefully-nuanced exposé of the bankrupt, dead-end nature of materialism ... A splendid coup d’état."
Hope's Reason: A Journal of Apologetics
