Drawing upon the richness and breadth of Jacques Maritain's thought, the contributors to this volume engage readers with philosophical essays about the search for truth in human life and civic engagement. The essays examine a broad range of topics, from those that are more properly theoretical, such as God, science, natural law, practical reason, education, and democracy, to those that are more practical, such as capital punishment, eugenics, friendship, love, and art. In each essay, the author implicitly challenges the claims of relativism and postmodernism, specifically the idea that there is no "real" truth and that what matters is merely the perspective of one's own frame of reference. The essays argue instead that theoretical truth-claims have practical consequences, that truth matters to those who are affected by it. In addition to the editor, the contributors are: Gavin T. Colvert, John A. D. Cuddeback, Raymond Dennehy, Bernard E. Doering, Desmond J. FitzGerald, Sarah J. Fodor, William J. Fossati, W. Matthews Grant, James G. Hanink, Katie Hollenberg, Gregory Kerr, James P. Mesa, Peter Pagan, Matthew S. Pugh, James V. Schall, S.J., Michael D. Torre, John R. Traffas, Cornelia A. Tsakiridou, Timothy S. Valentine, S.J., A. Leo White, Anne M. Wiles, and Henk E. S. Woldring. John G. Trapani, Jr., is Professor of Philosophy and Chair of the Humanities Division at Walsh University in North Canton, Ohio.

Does truth matter? Andrew Petiprin argues that Truth (with a capital T) not only matters, but grounding your life on the ancient truths of the Bible is the way to a better life. Discovering the true answers to the age-old questions, Who is God? and Who am I? will help us flourish. These questions are always connected to our beliefswhat we put our faith in. True faith is not a vague belief in a higher power. It is faith in the God who has revealed himself in specific ways in the Bible as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. The life of Christ is there. The church is there. Forgiveness is there. Resurrection, eternal life, and everything else is there. Truth Matters champions the authentic teachings of the Christian faith as the best means of human flourishing. Along the way, readers will learn how doctrine was debated and decided. Doctrine develops, but Truth never changes. The purpose of doctrine is to make Truth clearer than before, because our lives depend on it. Orthodox Christian doctrine simply paves the way for a better life (both now and forever) than any alternative. It is the only balm for our wounds during inevitable times of distress, and it is also the joy of our hearts in times of blessing. It keeps us from thinking too highly of ourselves by instilling in us an infinite worth given by an all-loving God. It reminds us that there is a place to turn when we fall short. Christian doctrine points us to Christ, who is the only rock on which we can safely build our lives.

Why should we seek and tell the truth? Does anyone know what truth is? Many are skeptical about the relevance of truth. Truth Matters endeavours to show why truth is important in a world where the very idea of truth is contested. Putting philosophers in conversation with educators, literary scholars, physicists, political theorists, and theologians, Truth Matters ranges across both analytic and continental philosophy and draws on the ideas of thinkers such as Aquinas, Balthasar, Brandom, Davidson, Dooyeweerd, Gadamer, Habermas, Kierkegaard, Plantinga, Ricoeur, and Wolterstorff. Some essays attempt to provide a systematic account of truth, while others wrestle with the question of how truth is told and what it means to live truthfully. Contributors address debates between realists and anti-realists, explore issues surrounding relativism and constructivism in education and the social sciences, examine the politics of truth telling and the ethics of authenticity, and consider various religious perspectives on truth. Most scholars agree that truth is propositional, being expressed in statements that are subject to proof or disproof. This book goes a step farther: yes, propositional truth is important, but truth is more than propositional. To recognize how it is more than propositional is crucial for understanding why truth truly matters.

In an interview with Christianity Today in 2012, Ed Stetzer shared that according to LifeWay research among young adults who had attended church regularly for at least a year in high school, 70% stop attending regularly for at least a year between ages 18-22. However, 35% of these had returned to attending twice a month or more by the time they were surveyed for the study. This means that about 4 out of 10 kids leave the church and NEVER RETURN. Here is how leading experts describe our church kids today: They are unarmed and incapable of defending their faith. They possess a faith that cannot withstand the scrutiny of trials or intellectual questions. They have a shallow belief system. They lack a robust faith. They haven’t learned how to think. They are embarrassingly ignorant of our faith. Truth Matters is written directly to this audience, arming them with well-reasoned responses to the accusations that are most likely to appear in their lives, either as upcoming lecture notes and test questions or as inner qualms and questions. Things like: What gives the Bible any authority or credibility? Where is God in a world full of suffering? Why should Christianity be any more believable than any other religious system? And many, many more. Easy to read yet loaded with meat and substance, this book is a level-headed reaction to those who equate Christian faith with “blind faith,” even those whose subtle or stated goal is to separate students from their religious traditions. Readers will discover the kind of historical information and thinking skills that build a sturdy backbone of confidence in high schoolers and young adults, making them able to defend by “reasoned faith” what the Bible claims as truth. Loosely organized around the theological skepticism of New York Times bestselling author (and southern college educator) Bart Ehrman, this jam-packed counterclaim is a book that parents will want to buy for their kids, a book that youth and student leaders will want to work through one-on-one and in discipleship groups—a book that could prove a lifesaver for young minds and hearts everywhere.

You will learn each of these 10 beliefs and be able to give examples of truth vs. counterfeit teachings.

Be prepared to have your eyes opened and your perceptions challenged in this surprising and important masterwork from one of the great theological minds of our time. Throughout his lengthy career as a student of Scripture and as an apologist and teacher, Hank Hanegraaff has always argued passionately for the importance of biblical truth and biblical understanding. Through his many published books and his long-running radio show, Bible Answer Man, his name has become synonymous with commitment to both theological rigor and an explanation of theological truth that is digestible for the lay believer. In the first half of this compelling and powerful book, Hank lays out the clear case for the importance of biblical truth in our time in the persuasive and practical way that only he can. In the surprising and unexpected second half of the book, he explores biblical truth not as an end but as a pathway to the ultimate truth—the personhood of God. Hank explains with both precision and compassion that the Bible is a map God has given us to draw us deeper into Himself, and that we cheat ourselves of real truth when we elevate the message above the Messenger.

Specific tenets of Word of Faith theology produce serious concerns in terms of their scriptural validity and continuity with orthodox Christian teaching. Scripture challenges believers to "test the spirits to see whether they are from God" (I John 4:1, NIV). In this volume, an attempt is made to test-or discern-specific claims of Word of Faith theology by comparing and contrasting them with the Word of God. "Dr. Morris has done an excellent job in exposing this Achilles heel through balanced and fair criticism, showing why a continual reformation from within this movement will be necessary." -David T. Williams, DTh professor of systematic theology, University of Fort Hare "The author had a clearly defined goal." -Marlon Winedt, PhD translation consultant, United Bible Societies "Dr. Morris has excelled in both his knowledge and accuracy regarding this research." -George D. Voorhis, DMin, DLitt former president of East Coast Bible College "Thought-provoking and ... evidence of good research." -Noel Woodbridge, DEd, DTh senior academic, South African Theological Seminary
