What is truth? Everyone has an opinion


Adamant: Finding Truth in a Universe of OpinionsEveryone has their own opinion of the definition of truth.  Is it relative? Is it absolute? Is it based on God’s Word? Is it different today than it was 50 years ago? 2000 years ago?  Does truth change with the culture?  Does it change with the times?  But, maybe, Truth is a Person.

“Adamant” by Lisa Bevere explores Truth as a Someone rather than a something.  The subtitle, “Finding Truth in a Universe of Opinions”, led me to believe that “Adamant” would identify truth from our false beliefs or opinions, such as our society seeking tolerance over the truth of God’s Word.  That was a wrong assumption.  It isn’t until chapter 6, entitled “Adamant in Hate”, that I understood the direction of Bevere’s book.  Chapter 6 was the best chapter in the book.  Chapter 7, “Adamant in Truth”, was a close second.  We are called to love. Sometimes our convictions get in the way.  Jesus is Truth. He modeled the way we are to treat others in view of truth.  Bevere’s book teaches us how to look for better ways of debating truth with those around us.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group, and Interviews and Reviews, as part of their Book Review Blogger Program. I was not required to write a review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”
