I think the book is very relavent for today. Anyone who is seeking truth in anything should read it. I buy multiple copies so I can give them away.

This book is amazing. Every Christian should read this book. Especially college students, academia, and those who want to learn how to take their faith into their workplace and professions where they can impact the worldly culture they are surrounded by.

But don't forget the love
Total Truth, is a strange title for a homosapien book. Even the great Apostle Paul saw through a glass dimly. Not so with Ms. Nancy Pearcey. She has not a grid, but the grid. Maybe that is where I?m just too wary to fully join her. Ms. Pearcy has the grid. So somehow if you don?t use her grid your Christianity is just not up to snuff, especially as a thinking Christian. She is just a little too confident in her assertions. It is a ?we (thinking Evangelicals) have the total truth? and all we really need do is convince the world of it and we pretty much rid the world of most of its problems. In the last chapter of her book she talks about our need to love one another and states that possibly the last chapter should have been the first. I fully agree with her here and wish that she had spent more time in really looking how we Christians should relate to one another in the love of Christ.
Her roots are with Francis Schaffer but somehow things come presented all packaged with little challenge on how evangelicals ought really to love one another. Loving Catholics isn?t even in the equation. In one particularly annoying segment she tells evangelicals to stop beating each other up over our understanding of creation as presented in the Genesis account and to go after the evolutionist. I guess after we impale them then we can get back to eviscerating one another. The book is not a total waste I only wish she had put more of her mental energies in how the love of Christ should look for us as thinking Christians.
