This book encourages an openness to accept and experience the truth, whatever its source. As philosopher Francis Schaeffer famously asked, "How can we be sure that what we think we know of the world outside ourselves really corresponds to what is there?"
Where do we look for an understanding of ourselves, our world, and the meaning of our existence? Is there such a thing as an objective and unchanging truth that applies to all people everywhere, throughout time? Can we discover it in philosophy, in the natural or social sciences, or in religion? This book sets out to explore the answers to these questions, and considers how finding the answers can enrich our lives and daily experience.
Following the Truth Wherever It Leads investigates areas where the authenticated discoveries of natural science and the clear statements of the Bible agree with and support one another and asks whether there really are "irreconcilable differences" between them. It ends by attempting to portray a worldview whose promise may add fresh meaning and purpose to our lives.
