Liberating !

If Darwin made it possible to be a fulfilled atheist, Ms Pearcy made it possible for me to be a sound christian. At the moment, CS Lewis is my favourite author on Christianity, and now I can't wait to discover Francis Schaeffer.

Exceptional book, topic with major flaw at end.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would highly recommend this book for anyone seeking a reasonable, rational exposition on a Christian worldview and a vigorous and needed dissembling of Darwinian scientism.This is a great book for a Christian thinker and a good challenge to the feel good wave of Christianity that is doing great damage to the Church, ceding precious ground to secularists who seek to compartmentalize Christianity as just another form of spiritism and to simply dismiss it from public debate in the areas of science, history, etc. This book asserts that the naturalist/materialist worldview is as religious as any other belief system cloaking itself in science, and that it's a worldview that shuns all truth that does not conform to their naturalist paradigm.The major flaw in this book is in the fourth section, where Pearcey discusses the evangelist movement in the colonies and later United States. She reveals her personal bias. She's obviously Reformed/Lutheran and dismisses any theological challenge to Calvinism as "anti-intellectual." While this section is still filled with worthwhile history, her conclusions are the weakest in the entire book and is rather sad way to end what is otherwise an amazing thesis on the Christian Worldview.

Wow.

If you could sum up Total Truth in three words, what would they be?

Satisfying, Genuine, Scholarly

Who was your favorite character and why?

Though it wasn't a narrative, it definitely had characters (hundreds of philosophers, scientists, ministers and more were cited!) My favorite was Francis Schaeffer, a powerful witness who showed true hospitality and love towards those he ministered to.

What about Kate Reading’s performance did you like?

I read the book at 3x the normal speed so her pronunciation and accurate rendition of the work's construction were invaluable.

Masterpiece, the Pieta of worldview treatises.

Loved every moment. I ordered the hard copy halfway through knowing I wanted to take notes in the margins.

Excellent work

From topic to topic it remains engaging and illuminating. Articulates the historical path and alterations made to the Christian worldview. Isolates where its been altered and by what influential hand. Enables the reader to connects the dots. Come to a fuller understanding as to the decline of the Christian worldview as an integral component in the active world. Illustrates the damage done through secular worldview. Eventually realizing the truth of the Christian worldview. Reinstituting the redemptive foundational Christian worldview is a last bastion of society

Excellent content

I'm really glad I listened to this book. It summarizes various worldviews and explains their origins. It is likely harder to listen than to read this book due to the dense and specific nature of the content. However I'm so glad I could listen to it during my commute. I highly recommend this to any Christian wanting to think critically about their and others worldviews.

Excellent! Essential reading

Essential reading for everyone over 16 years of age. You will learn the real issues behind competing worldviews, religions, and philosophies. My only critique is that the book could have been better organized as a whole.

Excellent Book on Worldviews

The narration was very good. The voice and pronunciation were excellent. The story line was well researched, educative and entertaining making listening easy. However, my only downside is that the audio chapters do not follow the book chapters. One chapter in the audio overlap into the other making it difficult to listen chapter by chapter. So most often I have to refer to my Kindle edition to know whether I'm in the same chapter. I hope this is corrected and updated before my second listening. I still give 5 stars because I cannot give 4.9 stars.

Life-changing perspective

Christianity for the heart and mind; and hope for Christians in western culture... Christ is truly the center; the hub to and from which all the spokes of life attach.
