Right now, truth is under attack, and much is at stake. Perhaps no one in America is more passionate than John MacArthur about exposing those who are mounting this attack?especially those bringing the assault right into the church. There is no middle ground?no safe zone for the uncommitted in this war. The battle for truth is raging, and this book reveals: The pitfalls of postmodern thinking Why the Emerging Church Movement is inherently flawed Past skirmishes in the Truth War and their effect on the Church The importance of truth and certainty in a postmodern society How to identify and address the errors and false teachings smuggled into churches "[The postmodern age] is the age of no truth, an age that has reached a point of deadly fatigue when it comes to facing the truth?a generation that no longer believes truth can be known. Dr. John MacArthur knows better, and he is armed with the courage to confront this age with a bold defense of truth. . . . His argument is compelling, his defense of truth is brilliant, and his concern for the church is evident on every page. The evangelical church desperately needs this book, and it arrives just in time." ?R. Albert Mohler Jr., President, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
Sometimes this is unpreventable because you cannot predict how someone will
accept the truth. As difficult as it is for many of us to accept, the truth is the only
way to true freedom. Truth releases us from the hold that our sin once had on us.

A life of sin can place us on a dangerous path. Many people do not recognize their destructive behavioral patterns, but for others this is a life-style. Sin has no boundaries, and it is capable of destroying the lives of very good people. This book will engage the reader and will expose those things which may have a negative influence in a person's life. It is important to recognize that all sins are forgiven when we place our trust in God. This book contains specific topics designed to promote journaling. While some of these topics are very sensitive, they will also open the door for healing as God will use this time to touch your heart. I hope you enjoy this intimate time with God. Dave Payton was born in Portsmouth, Ohio, 1957, and moved to Arizona at the age of five. He was raised in South Phoenix. He grew up in a predominately Hispanic neighborhood. It was in the streets that his lessons were learned. He acquired a different perspective on life as God showed him how to accept others for who they really are. Through much adversity and help along the way, he was able to fight his way to a better life. His tough life gave him compassion for those who suffered. His passion for the less fortunate will always be a soft spot in his heart as he can only thank God for saving him.

Joseph Austin is a senior in High School with a few problems. He's got anger issues that no one can seem to find the root of, and he's got major problems trusting people. Joe's lack of trust intensifies when he arrives home from school to find that his parents have been kidnapped by his maniacal ex-babysitter, who's now bent on revenge. After finding a rod and a coin in his refrigerator, Joe is transported to the dimension of the majestic Illurian Hotel. There: he meets the outrageous Aronus, receives powers he refuses to believe exist, and fights his ex-baby sitter, her boss, a dragon, and a horde of demons determined to destroy every world in existence. After the battle, Joe finds himself thrust in to yet another world and is forced to find the keys to access the real Illurian Hotel; which are hidden within seven demons with insanely destructive powers.

Author: C. Behan McCullagh
Modern relativism and postmodern thought in culture and language challenge the 'truth' of history. This book considers how all historians, confined by the concepts and forms of argument of their own cultures, can still discover truths about the past. The Truth of History presents a study of various historical explanations and interpretations and evaluates their success as accounts of the past. C. Behan McCullagh contests that the variety of historical interpretations and subjectivity does not exclude the possibility of their truth. Through an examination of the constraints of history, the author argues that although historical descriptions do not mirror the past they can correlate with it in a regular and definable way. Far from debating in the abstract and philosophical only, the author beds his argument in numerous illuminating concrete historical examples. The Truth of History explores a new position between the two extremes of believing that history perfectly represents the past and that history can tell us nothing true of the past.

Muhammad: a frank look at his influential (and violent) life and teachings In The Truth about Muhammad, New York Times bestselling author and Islam expert Robert Spencer offers an honest and telling portrait of the founder of Islam-perhaps the first such portrait in half a century-unbounded by fear and political correctness, unflinching, and willing to face the hard facts about Muhammad's life that continue to affect our world today. From Muhammad's first "revelation" from Allah (which filled him with terror that he was demonpossessed) to his deathbed (from which he called down curses upon Jews and Christians), it's all here-told with extensive documentation from the sources that Muslims themselves consider most reliable about Muhammad. Spencer details Muhammad's development from a preacher of hellfire and damnation into a political and military leader who expanded his rule by force of arms, promising his warriors luridly physical delights in Paradise if they were killed in his cause. He explains how the Qur'an's teaching on warfare against unbelievers developed-with constant war to establish the hegemony of Islamic law as the last stage. Spencer also gives the truth about Muhammad's convenient "revelations" justifying his own licentiousness; his joy in the brutal murders of his enemies; and above all, his clear marching orders to his followers to convert non-Muslims to Islam-or force them to live as inferiors under Islamic rule. In The Truth about Muhammad, you'll learn - The truth about Muhammad's multiple marriages (including one to a nine-year-old) - How Muhammad set legal standards that make it virtually impossible to prove rape in Islamic countries - How Muhammad's example justifies jihad and terrorism - The real "Satanic verses" incident (not the Salman Rushdie version) that remains a scandal to Muslims - How Muhammad's faulty knowledge of Judaism and Christianity has influenced Islamic theology--and colored Muslim relations with Jews and Christians to this day. Recognizing the true nature of Islam, Spencer argues, is essential for judging the prospects for largescale Islamic reform, the effective prosecution of the War on Terror, the democracy project in Afghanistan and Iraq, and immigration and border control to protect the United States from terrorism. All of which makes it crucial for every citizen (and policymaker) who loves freedom to read and ponder The Truth about Muhammad
In doing so, he cautions against the self-isolation of communities that regard
themselves as closed circles; he equates the refusal to offer hospitality to
missionaries with a rejection of catholicity and a repudiation of the truth. By
