Art Lindsley takes up the task in True Truth. While maintaining the indispensability of absolutes, he ably demonstrates that faith in Christ is necessarily opposed to and incompatible with the abuses of oppression, arrogance, intolerance, self-righteousness, closed-mindedness and defensiveness. Surprisingly, Lindsley shows that it is relativism which often harbors dangerous, inflexible absolutisms.
Here is a book that actively challenges the dismissal of truth, preparing the way for more effectively proclaiming the gospel and living Christianly in a postmodern world.

The motto of the post modern age seems to be 'even if that's true for you, it doesn't have to be true for me.' Intolerance is the unpardonable sin to the pomo mindset, and that leaves Christians as heretics to the new order. Christians have been labeled as intolerant, arrogant, and narrow minded for insisting that there are absalutes. Often, we can add defensive to that list, as we try to defend our stance. ................... **** To address this, Art Lindsley has written a concise book that will explain why absalute truth is real and how to defend your beliefs without being arrogant or defensive. His source list is impressive, his arguments, logical. All together, this is a fascinating, scholarly treatise. ****Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
