ABOUT THE BOOK
When Jesus stood before Pontius Pilate more than 2,000 years ago, Pilate asked of him the question, “What is truth,” but would not stay for an answer. Today, in the 21st century, that question has more relevance than ever before, because truth appears to have lost its “absolute” status, and is now held to be something that is only “relative.” Lack of consensus about truth can only lead to chaos and confusion. This book examines the historic perception of truths, fallacies, and untruths; it looks at the tenuous status of truth in today’s US political environment; and it explores the underpinnings of the current “post-truth” era.
