Overview
In our postmodern society, truth no longer exists in any objective or absolute sense. At best, truth is considered relative; at worst, a matter of human convention. But as Os Guinness points out in this important book, truth is a vital requirement for freedom and a good life. Time for Truth will challenge you to seek the truth, speak the truth, and live the truth. It will show you that becoming a free and truthful person is the deepest secret of integrity and the highest form of taking responsibility for yourself and for your life.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Critique of Postmodernism  Mar 25, 2007
His analysis of Bill Clinton in this volume as the poster-child of postmodernism is riveting. This book balances philosophy and Scripture wonderfully. Read it!
 
pretty good  Aug 29, 2006
This is a very good book about truth even for people without any religious beliefs. It contains many quotes from Greek and Roman philosophers and recent literary and political writers.

It reviews the recent history of the decline in the belief in absolute truth. I suspect that people at the bottom end of the intellectual scale, such as those who watch television, including PBS and NPR, and those who think that journalists tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth will have their beliefs strongly challenged.
 
Truth Under Seige  Apr 1, 2005
Truth is truly under attack in our times. That is what the profound thinker/author Guinness thoughtfully writes about in this work.

He is careful to contend continuously that he is not just making the case against the cognitive virus of postmodernism but against all systems and philosophies which seek to hijack the truth.

His conclusions are salient: the problem is the self. When self delegates truth to itself and self only, that is humanity's ultimate and only problem. It cannot start within us, but from outside from above.

While some including this reviewer appreciate and vibrate to his excellent illustrations from philosophy and literature (which would suggest five star review), many will be frustrated by this inclusions (thus three star or lower) resulting in my four star conclusion.

He does sprinkle in some current event type illustrations, e.g. Clinton but more of these would have helped the layperson to be more engaged with this excellent, penetrating delve into truth in the modern practice of it.
 
Good Book Critiquing Postmodernism  Aug 8, 2003
This is a short, pithy work on Postmodernism. Postmodernism is a detriment to society (at least most forms of it). Truth is no longer existent in our modern world. Guiness does a wonderful job showing the problems inherent of Postmodernism. I liked what he says about the Clinton scandal. It is not ironic that our first baby boomer president was our first Postmodern president.

I enjoyed most of this book, but I do think that it has some weaknesses. I wish he would have had more discussion in the Philosophical and Theological implications of Postmodernity, though. I enjoyed his emphasis on the socialogical implications, but I wish he would have gone more in depth into the other implications, as well. That is why I only gave the book 3 stars, but I do think Guiness accomplished every thing he meant to accomplish, namely a short pithy reponse to Postmodern America.

Since I originally revied this book, I have come to respect some Postmodern Philosophy (i.e. Heidegger). This book is more of a reaction to the negative aspects of Postmodernism, which would be relativity. This was a very good book, nevertheless.

 
great writing, but...  Jul 20, 2003
Guinness has written a book that is quite uneven in its presentation. He uses many historical sources and quotations very effectively, and the first half of the book is amazingly lucid. The philosophical introduction to modernist and postmodernist thinking is excellent, and the book is worth reading for this alone.

Unfortunately, Guinness seems to believe that he can convince readers about the truth of Christianity, that God _is_ truth, in the final 60 pages. It ain't possible, at least for my agnostic tendencies. Guinness absolutely convinced me that many postmodern thoughts are dangerous, but the extension that a belief in the Bible is the cure...

I have to also say that the author couldn't resist running too far to the right, politically, in my opinion. I agree with just about everything Guinness says about former President Clinton, but what he doesn't say speaks volumes, to the detriment of this book. He is unequivocally negative about Clinton, never once relenting, even with regard to Clinton's own personal beliefs. (Always thought it was odd that Christians weren't more charitable about the Clintons.) Never once mentions Iran Contra, never once mentions Rush Limbaugh, never once... Well, you can probably figure out which side of center I sit on politically. With the rabid right-wing out there saying whatever they wish, and claiming that it is the _truth_ (based on the Bible, of course) without cessation, Guinness should have used more balance in his presentation of current events.

Even so, I very much enjoyed "Time for Truth." I learned a lot, and although it is clear that there is much more to learn after finishing it, that's likely to be very close to what Guinness intended.
