Andrew Petiprin. Truth Matters: Knowing God and Yourself. 160p., $17.99, New Growth Press.
In a world that’s increasingly relative, author Andrew Petiprin helps readers discover unchanging truth based on God’s Word . . . [and] helps readers flourish in their faith by discovering the true answers to age-old questions like, “Who is God?” and “Who am I?”
Walking readers through many important doctrines of the Christian faith, Truth Matters supports those doctrines with Scripture and shows how they were developed carefully over the centuries by those who studied the Bible. As he engages with great thinkers of Christian tradition, including C. S. Lewis, T. S. Eliot, and others, Petiprin guides readers to put on the mind of Christ, leaning in to challenging questions. . . .
Truth Matters helps readers better understand truths about themselves by understanding the truth about God and his desire for a relationship with us. As readers learn more about how doctrine was debated and decided, they will also see that Truth never changes, and that the purpose of doctrine is to make Truth clearer than before . . . as a way to discover not just the truth about God, but to find God himself.
