What is truth? Michael Lynch defends a bold new answer to this question. Traditional theories hold that all truths are true in the same way. More recent theories claim that the concept of truth is of no real importance. Lynch argues against both these extremes: truth is a functional property whose function can be performed in more than one way.

“Larry Hart’s Truth Aflame brings together charismatic renewal and classic evangelical faith better than anything I have read. An important contribution to the contemporary renaissance in systematic theology!” Timothy George Dean of Beeson Divinity School of Samford University, Executive Editor of Christianity Today As the Pentecostal/charismatic movement continues to grow, so does the need for solid theological resources for its members. While there are many volumes of systematic theology available, very few are written from a distinctly charismatic perspective. Truth Aflame seeks to meet that need. While academically sound, Truth Aflame is written with a practical, pastoral flavor. Larry Hart defines systematic theology as the process of taking what the Bible teaches and relating it to contemporary questions and knowledge. His passion for the subject is evident: he is concerned that the reader both grasps the magnificence of the study of God and allows these great truths to be transformative. This Truth, then—liberating, enlivening, and transforming Truth—becomes central to the ongoing renewal of the church that we are seeing in our day. Dr. Hart treats each of the traditional categories—revelation, God, creation, humanity, sin, Christ, salvation, the church, and last things—from a Pentecostal/charismatic perspective. He addresses other theological viewpoints but does not get bogged down in analysis and rebuttal. Further, he seeks to build bridges of understanding to those evangelicals outside the charismatic tradition. Clear, succinct, and readable, this revised and updated edition of Truth Aflame is well-suited not only for students, but for anyone desiring a greater understanding of Pentecostal/charismatic theology.

The foundation truth is that God made and upholds everything with the Word of His power. His Word is truth; His Word is Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is the Spirit of truth while the devil is the spirit of error. The root cause of every problem is ignorance of the truth. The solution is in seeking, acknowledging, and applying the truth. Jesus Christ; the living Word of God is a privilege beyond description. He came to bear witness to the truth. Truth is the keys to salvation and the kingdom of God. Jesus said, `And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.' (John 8:32). There is no other way but the truth. `For we can do nothing against the truth, but for the truth.' (2 Corinthians 13:8). For a meaningful, significant, fulfilled, and abundant life to be attained, knowing the truth is inevitable. Those who were ordained for eternal life seek, hear, understand, acknowledge, stand, and manifest the truth. `But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.' (John 20:31). Truth is light. It will help you to navigate the journey through life filled with errors, snares, pitfalls, tests, trials, troubles, and temptations. Those who are of the light comes to the light. Therefore build upon the sure foundation and anchor your life on Christ Jesus. Be always ready to affirm, `THY WORD IS TRUTH.'

This accessible book examines the philosophical foundations of Chaim Perelman's rhetorical theory. In addition to offering a brief biography, it explores Perelman's deep philosophical commitments and his concern for the ways in which the details of actual texts realize those commitments. The authors show that Perelman still reigns supreme when it comes to the elucidation of actual texts. His is a micro-analysis of arguments, one that is endlessly suggestive of ways of analyzing texts at the level of the word and phrase, the arrangement of parts, and the structure of arguments.

Introducing the Edward Carnell Library (Nine Titles Listed Inside) A Philosophy of the Christian Religion is not a defense of the Christian faith in the conventional sense. The gamut of contending values and the systems of thought preoccupying the contemporary mind are analyzed here with admirable comprehension and lucidity. These competing philosophies are severally evaluated by the whole perspective of the Christian system and demonstrated as partial, here-and-now values, incapable of satisfying the demands of the whole man. Christianity is a coherent religion. It never asks the heart to trust values which the reason is obliged to discard as contradictory. No value commitment is completely satisfying until the complete man is satisfied. --from the preface

In this critical introduction to contemporary philosophical issues in the theory of truth Pascal Engel provides clear and authoritative exposition of recent and current ideas while providing original perspectives that advances discussion of the key issues. This book begins with a presentation of the classical conceptions of truth - the correspondence theory, the coherence theory and verificationist and pragmatist accounts - before examining so-called minimalist and deflationist conceptions that deny truth can be anything more than a thin concept holding no metaphysical weight. The debates between those who favour substantive conceptions of the classical kind and those who advocate minimalist and deflationist conceptions are explored. Engel argues that, although the minimalist conception of truth is basically right, it does not follow that truth can be eliminated from our philosophical thinking as some upholders of radical deflationist views have claimed. Questions about truth and realism are examined and the author shows how the realism/anti-realism debate remains a genuine, meaningful issue for a theory of truth and has not been undermined by deflationist views. Even if a metaphysical substantive theory of truth has little chance to succeed, Engel concludes, truth can keep a central role within our thinking, as a norm or guiding value of our rational inquiries and practices, in the philosophy of knowledge and in ethics.

Truth . . . According to the Scriptures is an easy-to-read way to examine some basic Bible teachings while also providing study outlines for further personal study. The nine topics addressed in this book are presented in a clear and straightforward manner pointing the reader, not to the ways of man or religion, but directly to the truth of God’s Word. The book of Isaiah proclaims that God’s thoughts and ways are far above any man’s, and it is with that idea in mind that great lengths have been taken to let the author of the Bible, God, explain His truths with His own words rather than use the ideas or thoughts of man. God proclaims in 2 Peter 1:20 that His Word is not open to any “private interpretation”; it says what it means and means what it says, and it doesn’t say one thing to one person and something else to another. The focus of this book is to examine Bible truths as they actually are, not in a twisted or perverted way that man or religion sometimes tries to interpret them to be. It would do us all good to stop making the Bible say what we want it to say and just accept God’s truth . . . according to the scriptures.
