“COMPELLING… EXCEPTIONAL… the rare long book that leaves one wanting to read more.” —Publishers Weekly
“A book of UNUSUAL IMPORTANCE by an author of UNUSUAL ABILITY.” —Phillip Johnson, UC Berkeley, from the Foreword
“SPLENDID, COMPREHENSIVE, PERSONAL MAGNUM OPUS…. Every page is loaded with trenchant insights.” —Ralph Winter, U.S. Center for World Mission
Is God a public figure? Does Christianity have a legitimate role to play in the public realm of politics, business, law, and education? Or are secularists right?
When they relegate religion to the strictly private realm of faith and feelings?
In Total Truth, Nancy Pearcey offers a razor-sharp analysis of the split between public and private, fact and feelings. She reveals the strategies of secularist gatekeepers who use this division to banish biblical principles from the cultural mainstream, stripping Christianity of its power to challenge and redeem the whole of culture.
How can we overcome this divide? Unify our fragmented lives? Recover authentic spirituality? With compelling examples from the struggles of real people, Pearcey shows how to liberate Christianity from its cultural captivity. She walks readers through practical, hands-on steps for developing a full-orbed Christian worldview. Finally, she makes a passionate case that Christianity is not just religious truth but truth about total reality. It is total truth.

A good staring place before you move on to Ms Pearcey's more mature and important Finding Truth.
- A great book, well read and...
A great book, well read and easy to listen to, even for a Brit who doesn't like American accents! One annoyance which I mention here in the hope that it might be changed is that although there are 14 mp3 tracks to download and 14 chapters in the book (inc. appendices),they don't correspond to each other. Most tracks contain the end of one chapter and the beginning of another. It would make navigation much easier if each track was a recording of one whole chapter and was named accordingly. Also, adding track numbers to the tags of each file would ensure most mp3 players play them back in the correct order.
- Why are we here? What is...
Why are we here? What is my purpose in life? Questions like these are answered in this challenging and thought-provoking audio book. Kate Reading does an excellent narration. In a clear and resonant voice she illuminates Pearcey's conviction that our world view controls our entire way of looking at life. A flawed world view can bring about despair and hopelessness. Pearcey tells of her personal journey to the truth of Christianity. Written for the intellectual and searching mind, TOTAL TRUTH suggests that embracing Christianity in all aspects of life brings lasting peace and satisfaction. Kate Reading's narration effectively portrays the author's message. N.L. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine
