Conventional wisdom holds that any belief in absolutes, especially of a religious nature, leads inevitably to the oppressive absolutism of such movements as the Inquisition, the Crusades and even Nazism. As a result, Christian apologists have been hard-pressed to make a case for the rational absolutes that are a necessary part of belief in Jesus.

Art Lindsley takes up the task in True Truth. While maintaining the indispensability of absolutes, he ably demonstrates that faith in Christ is necessarily opposed to and incompatible with the abuses of oppression, arrogance, intolerance, self-righteousness, closed-mindedness and defensiveness. So Part 1. of the book is about Absolutes without Absolutism
1. What Is Truth?
2. True Tolerance
3. Right, Not Righteous
4. Assertions Without Arrogance
5. Infallible Absolutes, Fallible People
6. Infallible Absolutes, Fallen Situations
7. Defense without Defensiveness
Surprisingly, Lindsley shows that it is relativism which often harbors dangerous, inflexible absolutisms in Part 2: Argument Against Relativism
8. When Arguments Fail
9. Absolutists in Disguise?
10. Consequences of the Denial
11. Relativism Self-Destructs
12. Everybody's Right and Nobody's Right
13. No Room for Evil
14. Truth that Transforms
Here is a book that actively challenges the dismissal of truth, preparing the way for more effectively proclaiming the gospel and living Christianly in a postmodern world.
