What does it mean to live by truth? What is truth? We live in a world which has lost touch with truth, which has reduced it to the merely rational and then discarded it as inadequate to explain the complexity of our lives.

But truth is more than fact or concept. Truth is the living force of reality itself, the power of God in the universe. Incarnate in the person of Jesus Christ, truth is not just factual but personal, not just intellectual but profoundly emotional. Reality is not just to be explained but discovered, not to be understood so much as experienced. Can we burst free from the inherited framework of our culture, and learn not only to 'know' truth but to feel it and live it, in such a way that it becomes real to those around us?

In this highly original book, Alison Morgan shows that Jesus himself lived free from the culturally imposed norms which restrict our understanding of truth. Offering a challenge to the world into which he came, Jesus overturned every assumption which kept people from experiencing the living reality of God. Examining church history, prophecy past and present, the state of our culture and of the church today, and drawing both on personal experience and the experience of others, Alison blends analysis and imagination, history and poetry in this prophetic challenge to the Western church.

A prophetic challenge to the Western church. The Christian faith is always subversive to the dominant world view. Jesus overturned every assumption which stopped people experiencing the living reality of God - the heart of truth. Sadly, the Western world has reduced truth to the merely rational, and then discarded it as inadequate. In Africa, and other parts of the world where God's truth has never been straitjacketed in this way, the church is characterised by a joy now absent in the West. Western culture has limited what we can believe and receive. Can we* Burst free from this restrictive secular framework? Learn not only to know truth, but to feel it, and live it? Live our faith in such a way that it becomes real to those around us? Alison Morgan shows that Jesus lived free from the culturally imposed norms which restrict our understanding of truth. Examining church history, prophecy past and present, the state of our culture and of the church today, and drawing on personal experience and the experience of others, Alison blends analysis and imagination, history and poetry in this prophetic challenge to Western Christians.
