Relying on sound biblical doctrine, MacArthur (editor & compiler, MacArthur Study Bible; Twelve Extraordinary Women) tackles postmodernism and its view of truth. That MacArthur is a conservative Bible-believing fundamentalist Christian is no secret. What may surprise lay readers, however, or those who might dismiss a fundamentalist as an extremist is MacArthur's ability to approach logically and sensibly the concept of truth and the philosophy of postmodernism. He clearly and concisely presents postmodernism's teachings, the faultiness of these teachings, and why Christians should not only be concerned about but also be engaged in a war against them. The war he has in mind is one of ideas, "a battle against false doctrines, evil ideologies, and wrong beliefs." MacArthur's willingness to call certain things false, wrong, and evil reflects his deep conviction and profound belief in an absolute truth, the truth of the Bible. Though at times his arguments are harsh and abrasive, they are always uncompromising and sprinkled with concern and compassion. One need not be a fundamentalist Christian to read and enjoy this book; its well-defined arguments, beliefs, and ideals can benefit anyone. Recommended for all libraries.
