Summary

Increasingly, Western culture embraces confusion as a virtue and decries certainty as a sin. Those who are confused about sexuality and identity are viewed as heroes. Those who are confused about morality are progressive pioneers. Those who are confused about spirituality are praised as tolerant. Conversely, those who express certainty about any of these issues are seen as bigoted, oppressive, arrogant, or intolerant.

This cultural phenomenon led the compilers of the Oxford English Dictionary to name "post-truth" their word of the year in 2016. How can Christians offer truth and clarity to a world that shuns both?

By accurately describing the Culture of Confusion and how it has affected our society, author Abdu Murray seeks to awaken Westerners to the plight we find ourselves in. He also challenges Christians to consider how they have played a part in fostering the Culture of Confusion through bad arguments, unwise labeling, and emotional attacks.

Ultimately, Saving Truth provides arguments from a Christian perspective for the foundations of truth and how those foundations apply to sexuality, identity, morality, and spirituality. For those enmeshed in the culture of confusion, the book offers a way to untangle oneself and find hope in the clarity that Christ offers.

excellent thoughtful book

it is a thought-provoking book. Many times it deals with a lot of philosophical issues with the post truth era. I liked the several examples littered throughout the book. I think it is a timely book for this age.

Excellent book

Mr. Murray takes an insightful, compassionate look at how to apply a Christian worldview to our culture. He provides well-crafted arguments that explain the necessity of living from a truth mindset and how to.engage a culture that opposes this perspective. In the book he tackles issues of freedom, science, sexuality, and more without being dogmatic or illogical. I found this to be an intellectually and spiritually engaging listen and believe it would benefit a re-listen to absorb all he is trying to say.
