Customer Questions & Answers for
Inter-Varsity Press A Place for Truth: Highlights from the Veritas Forum

The pursuit of knowledge is one of the most important unifying elements in our increasingly global--and information hungry--culture. But what of truth? Can truth be simply relegated to the proposition that good information equals ultimate truth?

In an age that disputes whether truth can be universalized beyond one's own personal experience, it seems quaint to speak of finding truth. But whether in the ivory towers of the academy or in the midst of our everyday lives, we continue to seek after the true, the beautiful and the good. Indeed, despite the vast ocean of information that is available to many people, our lives often stand on the brink of despair because we have not infused our knowledge with truth.

Since it's founding at Harvard in 1992, the Veritas Forum has provided a place for the university world to explore the deepest questions of truth and life. What does it mean to be human? Does history have a purpose? Is life meaningful? Can rational people believe in God? Now gathered in one volume and entitled A Place for Truth are some of the Veritas Forum's most notable presentations from the elite Christian intellectuals.

These renowned scholars cover topics as compelling as Christian Apologetics, and as complex as Human DNA and in the process relate how the information they have uncovered in their work contributes not just to a body of information, but to truth and meaning.
