I considered calling this episode “Women Finding Truth and Freeloading Atheists in Cultural Apologetics” because that covers pretty much all the topics we talked about. But as you can see, it’s not really a great title.
The guest is worldview expert Nancy Pearcey. If her book, Total Truth, made the case for a Christian worldview, then her latest book, Finding Truth, tells you how to do it.
There are 5 principles that she discerns in Romans chapter 1 that apply to any worldview. Any philosophy or school of thought that does not recognize God as the foundation of reality inevitably places some part of the creation in the place of God. And the worldview they end up with is never big enough to hold their experience. There’s always some part that sticks out.
