    If you think that truth is important and desire to know how it is thought about in today's culture, read this book. If you think that truth is not important, read this book.

    I wrote this to counteract postmodernism

    (I gave myself four stars because I had to fill out that part in order to write anything else!) This book assesses the core claims of postmodernism with respect to its ideas of truth. Truth is 'decaying' in that people take truth to mean what is socially, culturally, and individually constructed as opposed to what is factually the case. I defend the classical correspondence view of truth--a statement is true only if it matches up with what it refers to--and develop the biblical view of truth as objective, absolute, universal, etc. Along the way I critique postmodernist views on ethics, art, theology, and so on. I am quite concerned to challenge Christian writers who appropriate postmodernist ideas uncritically. The book is closer to 300 pages long than the length given on this page. It includes an index and is heavily footnoted.
