In PRISM's Book Bag: TOTAL TRUTH – Liberating Christianity from its Cultural Captivity by Nancy Pearcey
Does God belong in the public arena of politics, business, law, and education? Or is religion a private matter only – personally comforting but publicly irrelevant?
In today's cultural etiquette, it is not considered polite to mix public and private, or sacred and secular. Author Nancy Pearcey believes that this division is the single most potent force keeping Christianity contained in the private sphere – stripping it of its power to challenge and redeem the whole of culture.
In TOTAL TRUTH, Pearcey analyses the public/private split, explaining that it hamstrings our efforts at both personal and cultural renewal, ultimately reflecting a division in the concept of truth itself, which functions as a gatekeeper, ruling Christian principles out of bounds in the public arena.
How can we unify our fragmented lives and recover spiritual power? With examples from the lives of real people, past and present, Pearcey advises readers on how to liberate Christianity from its cultural captivity. She walks readers through practical, hands-on steps for crafting a full-orbed Christian worldview. She makes a passionate case that Christianity is not just religious truth but truth about total reality.
