"Pearcey invites readers to 'TEST EVERYTHING' ... She illustrates how competing systems of thought borrow from Christianity even while rejecting it.... An IMMENSELY PRACTICAL and INSIGHTFUL resource."
"Nancy Pearcey at her besttotally profound, persuasive, and yet practical. Read it with your highlighter handy!"
Lee Strobel, New York Times bestselling Author
"Fantastic! … Sharp critique of secular culture and a helpful guide for correcting it."
Sean McDowell, Author, Speaker
"Chock full of gems … Pearcey has the unique ability of getting to the heart of things."
Gregory Koukl, President, Stand to Reason
"Pearcey promises that the principles she lays out will 'provide you with the tools to recognize whats right and wrong with any worldviewand 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."
"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 goalhelping the reader to communicate Christian convictionsleads 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. Pearceys 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 Pearceys 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 Pearceys analysis of secular worldviews convincing and her presentation of Christianity appealing."
"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 Gods 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 détat."

"Describes my life as an atheist perfectly … If Id read this book as a young man, I think I would have been challenged to re-examine my views much earlier."
J. Warner Wallace, Author, Cold-Case Christianity
"Dismantles humanism, atheism, reductionism, and every other ism … Pearceys arguments combined with the Gospel of Jesus leave all other worldviews outside of Christianity without a leg to stand on."
