Truth Matters: Knowing God and Yourself

$17.99 $15.99 You save $2.00

In a world where everything is increasingly relative, Truth Matters provides an invitation to latch on to unchanging truth that transcends all opinions and feelings. Author Andrew Petiprin argues that Truth (with a capital T) not only matters, but grounding your life on the ancient truths of the Bible is the way to rich life of meaning and purpose. This book will help readers better understand truths about themselves by understanding the truth about God and his desire for a relationship with us.

Walking readers through many important doctrines of the Christian faith, Truth Matters supports those doctrines with Scripture and shows how they were developed carefully over the centuries by those who studied the Bible. As he engages with great thinkers of Christian tradition, including C.S. Lewis, T.S. Eliot and others, Petiprin guides readers to the true answers to age-old questions like “Who is God?” and “Who am I?” .

Mirroring the structure of traditional creeds, Truth Matters helps readers better understand truths about themselves by understanding the truth about God and his desire for a relationship with us. As readers learn more about how doctrine was debated and decided, they will also see that Truth never changes, and that the purpose of doctrine is to make Truth clearer than before.

As it champions the authentic teachings of the Christian faith, Truth Matters points to doctrine, liturgy, and tradition as a way to discover not just the truth about God, but to find God himself.
