Publisher's Description

A 2001 Christianity Today Award of Merit winner! The concept of truth as absolute, objective and universal has undergone serious deterioration in recent years. No longer is it a goal for all to pursue. Rather postmodernism sees truth as inseparable from culture, psychology, race and gender. Ultimately, truth is what we make it to be. What factors have accelarated this decay of truth? Why are people willing to embrace such a devalued concept? How does this new view compare and contrast with a Christian understanding? While postmodernism contains some truthful insights (despite its attempt to dethrone truth), Douglas Groothuis sees its basic tenets as intellectually flawed and hostile to Christian views. In this spirited presentation of a solid, biblical and logical perspective, Groothuis unveils how truth has come under attack and how it can be defended in the vital areas of theology, apologetics, ethics and the arts.

Editorial Reviews

" Truth Decay explains how God's truth ignites our passion for Him in a world gone numb with endless distractions, infuses our lives with objective meaning in a chaotic and pointless culture, and benefits His people together in community. As such, Groothius' work will help pastors who are seeking to deliver God's truth in culturally relevant ways."

    You want Truth?Not sure there is such a thing? Are you willing to engage all your reasoning faculties and use the simplicity of Logic?Then this book is for you, and all who wonder where and what Truth might be. Truth clearly exists and is neither subjective nor fictitious. You have only to follow Groothuis's detailed explanation to see the light (and the light of Christ will outshine all other).
