Recorded on October 19, 2004

Location: The Heritage Foundation's Lehrman Auditorium

In this season of presidential politics, Americans face a confusing array of voices on issues ranging from Islamic terror, to homosexual "marriage," to embryonic stem cell research, to the role of religion in public policy. Into this confusion comes a breakthrough book of stunning clarity, insight, and reach - Truth: Liberating Christianity from Its Cultural Captivity. Written by best-selling author Nancy Pearcey, Total Truth gives analytical tools to uncover the strategies used by secularists and liberals to exclude religious conservatives from the public arena. Now, just weeks before the November election, learn how to challenge the strategies of the spinmeisters and political operatives, and to decode the campaign rhetoric that drives the daily political combat. Total Truth is a "manifesto" for getting past the cultural gatekeepers, Pearcey explained in a Washington Times interview. And Human Events calls the book "a rousing call to action for Christians to wage the culture war."


"Total Truth is a unique combination of apologetics, worldview analysis, social commentary, and instruction manual. Pearcey's knowledge, insight, and faith place her among the top handful of relevant Christian thinkers of our time."

"A book of unusual importance by an author of unusual ability. Nancy Pearcey is an author who is greatly respected by all who know her work."
