Item Description...
Absolute Truth? explains the philosophy of Absolute Relativism and the difficulties surrounding it. This booklet helps to determine religious truth.

Publishers Description
Is it closed-minded to think there are absolutes in this world--including elements of the Christian gospel? This booklet clearly and logically discusses pluralism and relativism, then goes on to lead readers to determine religious truth for themselves. Author Mark Ashton challenges readers to put Christianity (and any other religion for that matter) to the test--the test for absolute truth.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Great  Mar 15, 2004
Very useful, but don't expect what that guy expected.
Whose Absolute Truth?  Apr 5, 2001
The jacket blurb makes the book sound interesting as "Catholics reveal how their relationship with their chruch has changed since the second Vatican Council in the 1960s". It even starts well as Mr. Stourton provides, with obvious fondness, memories of his Catholic school upbringing. But that's about it. The book thereafter is just a rehash of the usual schpiel against the traditional Church. Yeah, he talks to a lot of people. I suppose being a BBC correspondent can open doors. But what insight is gained? Anyone familiar with the usual liberal view of the Church knows the drill. Everyone connected with the Church hierarchy is suspect - cold, narrow minded, and by implication, sinister. I mean when is somebody going to give poor ol' Cardinal Ratzinger a break! On the other hand, any critic of the Church is by definition imaginative and modern. The truly noble are presented as those lucky theologians that have actually been criticized or punished by the Church. It never ceases to amaze how the tenets and beliefs of a 2000 year old church are expected to just fold up when subjected to the Yoda like logic of modern public opinion. For example, Mr. Stourton takes great issue in the preparation and presentation of the encyclical Humane Vitae. The final encyclical is presented by the author as flawed because a consultative process that included the stories of "ordinary Catholics" was ignored. Inevitably it followed, that this teaching was rejected by the majority of lay Catholics because of a lack of recognition of their modern beliefs and societal needs. What is not explained by the author is why a Church teaching that challenges a layman's convenient view on contraception and abortion is wrong and somehow should not be taught. If the purpose of the orginal consultative process was to protect anyone from being uncomfortable about the encyclical then perhaps the Crowley's and their "ordinary Catholics" were not ignored and insulted, instead they were just the wrong people to ask to participate. This book is apparently a basis for a BBC series on the Catholic Church so I suppose the author had to follow the party line as found in the BBC/New York Times/Catholic Reporter/etc. However, Mr. Stourton did not write about the most significant change in the Catholic Church since the Council. How did it come to pass that in the 40 years since Vatican II we now have a generation of Catholic youth that have no understanding of basic Catholic theology, tradition, and history?! How did the Church in it's rush to implement the teachings of the Council manage to lose the ability to proclaim and teach the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the young in our society? I would submit that this is the true legacy of Vatican II. The great challenge of the Catholic Church in the new millenium will be to reevangilize our now mostly pagan society.
Not what I expected at all  Dec 21, 2000
When I first bought this, I thought it was going to be a scientific book. It turns out to be just ramblings from some guy. It wasn't even a book, it was more like a pamphlet. I was not happy that I had paid... for some propaganda. If you are looking for a book about truth, stick to something else in the New Age section because this book/flier is not worth it....
How Vatican II has affected the Catholic Church  Jul 31, 2000
A history of the Catholic Church during and after Vatican II, it looks at the affect this council has had on the Church. Undersatndably and yet in some ways, suprisingly it has turned the Church into an arena for renewal. In different continents it means different things. For N. America and Europe it's sexuality and relativity. For S. America it is about dealing with poverty, in Africa and Asia it is about dealing with Pluralsim, in Eastern Europe during the Cold War it was about Religious freedom. Balanced (To a degree) and forthright it has an interesting insight into the pains, struggles and upheavals of the Church. The strange thing being that it helped some of my theological views become more conservative and in one or two cases more liberal. It also made me come realise the need for the Christian community worldwide to be more fluid but without compromise.
