Product Description

Increasingly, Western culture embraces confusion as a virtue and decries certainty as a sin. Those who are confused about sexuality and identity are viewed as heroes. Those who are confused about morality are progressive pioneers. Those who are confused about spirituality are praised as tolerant. Conversely, those who express certainty about any of these issues are seen as bigoted, oppressive, arrogant, or intolerant.

This cultural phenomenon led the compilers of the Oxford English Dictionary to name "post-truth" their word of the year in 2016. How can Christians offer truth and clarity to a world that shuns both?

By accurately describing the Culture of Confusion and how it has affected our society, author Abdu Murray seeks to awaken Westerners to the plight we find ourselves in. He also challenges Christians to consider how they have played a part in fostering the Culture of Confusion through bad arguments, unwise labeling, and emotional attacks.

Ultimately, Saving Truth provides arguments from a Christian perspective for the foundations of truth and how those foundations apply to sexuality, identity, morality, and spirituality. For those enmeshed in the culture of confusion, the book offers a way to untangle oneself and find hope in the clarity that Christ offers.

Editorial Reviews

A onetime lawyer with a love for language and justice, Abdu Murray shows how “we have mistaken autonomy for freedom” and how this “quest for autonomy has led us down an endless road with no traffic lights or painted lines.” Aligning our hopes and desires with the truth can be costly but also freeing---as Abdu’s own story reveals and Jesus poignantly declared. I’ve had the privilege of speaking and answering questions with Abdu in numerous university open forums. I’ve witnessed his keen mind, winsome humor, and sensitive spirit touch even the most ardent skeptic or follower of another faith, who have then engaged in conversation with him long after an event. This book is genuinely a breath of fresh air and an invaluable and accessible resource. -- RAVI ZACHARIAS, author and speaker

Abdu Murray’s Saving Truth is powerfully poignant in an age in which internet fabrications “travel halfway around the world before truth has had a chance to put its boots on.” There is no greater need in our post-truth “Culture of Confusion” than clarity respecting truth---what it is, how one can know it, and most importantly why we must submit our personal preferences to it, no matter the cost. -- HANK HANEGRAAFF, president, the Christian Research Institute; host, Bible Answer Man broadcast and Hank Unplugged podcast; author of more than twenty books, including MUSLIM: What You Need to Know about the Worlds Fastest-Growing Religion

Everything we believe about culture, politics, or religion is shaped by our view of the world. Every Christian believer must, therefore, ask an important question: Are we allowing our Christian worldview to help us see reality clearly? In Saving Truth, Abdu Murray uses his considerable skills as a lawyer and Christian thinker to examine the most pressing issues of culture. His style is accessible and winsome, his message is relevant and timely. If you want some help evaluating the challenges facing our nation and Church, get this book. -- J. WARNER WALLACECold- Case Detective; Senior Fellow, the Colson Center for Christian Worldview; Adjunct Professor of Apologetics, Biola University; author, Cold-Case Christianity, Gods Crime Scene, and Forensic Faith

In a world of moral confusion and situational ethics, my friend Abdu Murray brings masterful clarity and penetrating insights in his invaluable new book. This is a book you’ll be telling all of your friends about! -- LEE STROBEL, New York Times best-selling author; professor, Houston Baptist University

Saving Truth is a timely and important book. Murray deconstructs many of the confusions inherent in our “post-truth” culture. And yet he offers positive steps forward. I wish every Christian---and especially every Christian student---would read, study, and discuss this book. -- SEAN MCDOWELL, Ph.D., professor, Biola University; internationally recognized speaker; author or coauthor of more than eighteen books including Evidence That Demands a Verdict

We seem to live in a world where we’ve moved on from the concept of truth, and yet we cannot ultimately live without it. Abdu Murray has a big brain and a big heart and provides a uniquely reliable, understanding, and hope-filled guide to the issues facing (and overwhelming) us today. -- SAM ALLBERRY, apologist with RZIM; author, Is God Anti-Gay?

When Oxford Dictionaries named post-truth its word of the year in 2016, it didn’t seem too severe of a surprise. Our culture, and thus, our conversations have slowly slid under the rule of feeling, opinion, and subjectivity. In Saving Truth, Abdu Murray unfolds the history of our post-truth culture, points out its consequences, and calls us to anchor in the Living One who Himself is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. This resource will help you live freely in Jesus, the Truth who is unchanging, while equipping you with helpful language and tools to dialogue within a culture that largely celebrates its departure from truth. -- LOUIE GIGLIO, pastor, Passion City Church; founder, Passion Conferences

Whether we know it or not, the most important subject in the universe is Truth. Live by it and your eternity is secure. Ignore it and disaster awaits you in this life and forever. With this insightful book, my brilliant friend Abdu Murray is Saving Truth on the most relevant issues in our lives. Abdu brings you light and clarity to this increasingly dark and confusing world. -- FRANK TUREK, CrossExamined.org and coauthor, I Dont Have Enough Faith to be an Atheist
