The Truth War: Fighting for Certainty in an Age of Deception by John MacArthur

Right now, truth is under attack, and much is at stake. Perhaps no one in America is more passionate than John MacArthur about exposing those who are mounting this attack?especially those bringing the assault right into the church.

There is no middle ground?no safe zone for the uncommitted in this war. The battle for truth is raging, and this book reveals:

  • The pitfalls of postmodern thinking
  • Why the Emerging Church Movement is inherently flawed
  • Past skirmishes in the Truth War and their effect on the Church
  • The importance of truth and certainty in a postmodern society
  • How to identify and address the errors and false teachings smuggled into churches

"[The postmodern age] is the age of no truth, an age that has reached a point of deadly fatigue when it comes to facing the truth?a generation that no longer believes truth can be known. Dr. John MacArthur knows better, and he is armed with the courage to confront this age with a bold defense of truth. . . . His argument is compelling, his defense of truth is brilliant, and his concern for the church is evident on every page. The evangelical church desperately needs this book, and it arrives just in time." ?R. Albert Mohler Jr., President, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

I am a big fan of John MacArthur, not because he is necessarily the most eloquent or enlightening author/speaker I have encountered, but on literally every scriptural issue of importance he has taken a strong stand to defend the Bible and the truth. The case is no different with this book, which seeks to expose the fallacies of the emergent church and other truth-denying Christian movements. He explains their philosophical roots and the significance of their truth statements. Excellent read, highly recommended.

This is an excellent book with documentation relating to the issues of the emergent church, and pastors and congregations trying to change the doctrinal authority of God's Word. The Bible speaks of spiritual leaders in the latter times speaking to "itching ears" and Dr. MacArthur is very specific and organized in his documentation relating to this and other issues. Although I love this book it would be hard reading for general readers as Dr. MacArthur uses many complex words and terms. It would have been better if he would have used a different choice of words in many areas as this would make this book easier reading and be able to be enjoyed by many who perhaps do not have a college education or knowledge of complex terms. With all that said, I still give this book a solid "5 stars".

John MacArthur is known for writing some of the most important books for the modern Christian era, and the Truth War is another in his canon. It's one of his greatest works, and speaks on a topic that needs to be addressed and internalized by all Christians living on God's green earth. I heard different views regarding how accurate MacArthur's interpretation of the emergent church really is. But nonetheless, his views on upholding truth should be an important practice for Christians. As much as there are emerging churches out there that are doing God's work in an ethical manner, it's undeniable that there are also lost Christians who have been deceived by prosperity gospel preaching churches, heretic organizations, or even overly liberal emerging churches. They've never truly been born again, or are following a false version of the gospel. In this case, we must help them. This book explores the importance of standing up for truth and defending it with great biblical passages, examples, and stories from past history. If you truly have a love for the word of God, then you will fight for it, no matter how "fundamentalist" or exacting you may appear. People's eternity is at stake, and we should always remember that fact. In all, I highly recommend this book. It's one that I would give out to every Christian if I had the money. It's good for both evangelists, bible study teachers, and any Christian willing to expand God's Kingdom in this world.

John MacArthur is one of the best theologians of our time. This books lays out the truth about false teachings in our modern churches and calls to arms those faithful to God's Word to stand up for the truth. This book, as with all of John MacArthur's books, is written with the Bible as its standard for truth and confronts the apostasy that is so rampant in the "seeker friendly churches" and mega churches that are so popular in Ametica today.

I could not even finish this book. He claims to write according to scripture but he interprets scripture to fit what he wants to say and not what the scriptures really mean. His writing is also very boring. Go read C S Lewis instead. Much better for your head and your soul.
