Summary:

Saving Truth: Finding Meaning and Clarity in a Post-Truth World

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.

Micah McBay rated “Saving Truth” 5 out of 5 Stars.
When truth ceases to serve its function as arbiter of opinions and society shifts to post-truth beliefs based solely on feelings, how do we respond and navigate through such choppy waters? RZIM's North American Director, Abdu Murray, brilliantly answers this question in his new book "Saving Truth". While our society once revered rational thinking and prized the collection and assimilation of new factual data, we now seem content to absorb emotional one-liners and enshrine them as facts-of-the-moment regardless of validity. Murray strikes at the heart of the issue, focusing first at home with the Christian church, and then moving through a variety of relevant topics like human sexuality, freedom and dignity, religious pluralism, science and faith.

If you are struggling with the confusing issues we face today, Abdu Murray provides clear and compelling answers in this book.

Julie D. rated “Saving Truth” 5 out of 5 Stars.
This book was so eye opening and held so much truth - Biblical truth. I have been looking around me at the world and seeing how things are turned upside down because people don't stand for any one truth.

Mr. Murray shares how our society has become "post-truth" and it's become confusing for everyone. Personal truths are held above real truth and it creates confusion and fear for everyone.

As I was reading this book while the Alfie Evan's tragedy was happening in the UK. This baby was sentenced to death because he had an illness that the doctors had deemed would not give him a quality of life. I was struck by how this book actually addressed issues like this that would have never happened when we were a society based on Biblical truths. Now, people can decide the fate of others based on a personal belief.

This book really needs to be read by everyone! It has so much common sense because it is based on God's common sense. This book was so easy to read and I breezed through it. Although it was a serious subject, Mr. Murray writes in a way that draws you into the book and he doesn't talk above our heads.

I highly recommend this book and give it 5 out of 5 stars.

I didn’t even know what the “post truth” culture was, nor did I think it applied to me! After reading Abdu Murray’s book, “ Saving Truth”, I wish everyone would get a copy and read it! It is for all! This is not just another “Christian” book, but reaches an audience far beyond that. Abdu writes with clarity and much wisdom! The rest of the title says,” Finding Clarity & Meaning in a Post Truth World, and these words drew me in! This book appealed to me because I see America changing before my eyes! What will it be like for my grandchildren? Abdu not only covers the problems he sees, that everyone is guilty of, but gives us hope and truth. I especially liked how Abdu Murray boiled it down to three things were sacrificing on the altar of autonomy ( self rule), our ability to reason, our moral accountability and our sense of human value. Abdu brings it all together by linking truth with true freedom by knowing personally that source, Jesus Christ. Jesus says, “ if you abide in my word, you are truly my desciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free” John 8:33

Loved the book and highly recommend to all people of all world views!

Victoria DelSanto rated “Saving Truth” 5 out of 5 Stars.
Within what seems to me, a few decades, our society in America has changed rather drastically. Out with the old, and in with, "Post-Truth" . Is this new ideology really as safe as people believe it to be? What exactly is, "Post-Truth" anyway?

Abdu Murray breaks all barriers with his new book, "Saving Truth: Finding Meaning and Clarity in a Post-Trut World." This is a must read for all ages, and background. For the Christian community, beware, you will surely get a healthy dose of conviction. Remember though, Jesus has asked us to grow in our faith and walk in truth. I would recommend this work to anyone. It's worth your time, and I don't say that very often.

Ron Kopicko rated “Saving Truth” 5 out of 5 Stars.
In the words of another, "We live in an age in which everything nailed down is coming loose and the things that people said could not happen, are happening; and thoughtful people, even those who are strangers to faith are asking, 'Where is the glue that can hold together the disintegrating and disarrayed parts?'" With "Saving Truth", Abdu Murray presents an outstanding case for the confusion in our world and in our midst with excellent reason and clarity and brings forth the "Glue" with a depth of knowledge, perspective, analysis and conviction. "Saving Truth" is a must read, a great read and an anticipated re-read!

Sarah Biggerstaff rated “Saving Truth” 5 out of 5 Stars.
Not a light, easy read, but the message is profound. This book is packed with truth about the gospel and the world we live in today including gender, science, freedom & religion. The seduction of a post-truth mindset is laid out, but as I finished the book I was left incredibly encouraged and inspired to continue to follow Jesus.
