  • Would you choose God over truth If we Evangelicals are known for anything, we are mostly known for our opinions opinions we are not afraid to express and express with much gusto and volume But what if passion for truth is found not in the loudest voice and most unshakable convictions, but rather in the resolve to listen to and learn from others What if that passion isWould you choose God over truth If we Evangelicals are known for anything, we are mostly known for our opinions opinions we are not afraid to express and express with much gusto and volume But what if passion for truth is found not in the loudest voice and most unshakable convictions, but rather in the resolve to listen to and learn from others What if that passion is found in a willingness to rethink our most cherished beliefs What if it is found in a refusal to embrace simple black and white categories when the world offers a bewildering array of gray What if it is found when we refuse to dismiss those who disagree with us as simply stupid or wicked What if it is found when we seek to learn from others through open and honest dialogue In You re Not As Crazy As I Think, Randal Rauser presents a very different picture of the passionate pursuit of truth from those who seek to stand on unassailable and unquestionable foundations This pursuit begins as we rethink not only our truth paradigm but learn how to listen, to hear, and learn from groups so often marginalized by our biases Could it be that those who we have dismissed or ignored, like liberal Christians, Darwinists, atheists, and animal rights activists, are not that stupid or wicked after all Could it be that they might even have something important to share about the truth
    Randal Rauser
    Randal Rauser is a systematic and analytic theologian of evangelical persuasion He is driven by apologetic concerns and above all by the tireless pursuit of truth The downside is that this requires him to recognize when he is wrong which is often for truth is complex and it offers us no guarantees that we shall always find it At the same time, Randal does not despair of finding truth, for he believes that in a profound sense Jesus Christ is the truth.For Randal, being like Jesus means knowing the truth, loving the truth, and living the truth As Randal seeks to live the truth he promotes a culture of life that is anti militaristic and pro family, pro environment and anti abortion, anti consumerist and pro animal A disciple on the way alas, he is not half as smart or as good or as right as he thinks he is.

    I stumbled across this book because it was written by an engaging and very bright theology professor at Taylor Seminary in Edmonton. The title says it all as Rauser pleads his case (albeit from a Christian evangelical perspective) for the pursuit of truth over dogma and entrenched opinions. In a pleasantly accessible manner, he explains how everyone needs to overcome the confirmation bias (i.e. deferring to presently held beliefs and unfairly discriminating against evidence that may rebut those [...]

    Good read as usual from this author, but arguments could certainly have been stronger. While I would recommend this book for a mature Christian I would note to them that the arguments are not complete and some very important aspects have been left out. I do however appreciate the authors over arching point that we must not outright judge a professing Christian based solely on their theological understanding. We must be wise to consider how and why the person got there if we are to help in the pu [...]
