Together, the collection of essays in this volume seek to explore the place of Christianity, the Church and their claims to uphold the truth in an age of `post-truth'.
Beginning with a consideration of truth within the biblical tradition, the chapters come from historical, theological and philosophical starting points in their concerns, setting out the groundwork for discussions of Christian truth and science, prayer, ethics and the liturgy.
Questions for discussion follow each chapter.

“As a Christian I am confronted by those who ask me to tell them the truth about faith, while they are being bombarded by theory wrapped up as truth, I find it, at times, frustrating and difficult. I am therefore very thankful for this book which I hope will enable more of us to be able to discern the truth revealed in our faith.” -- Most Revd. Mark Strange, Bishop of Moray, Ross and Caithness and Primus of the Scottish Episcopal Church
