Why go through the river?

In our upcoming book, we talk about changing your truth lens as being like going through a river. Unfortunately, there is no bridge, and the challenge is great. It takes a lot of effort to get you through the current before it sweeps you away.

So if it’s so hard, why go through the river? People usually go because of what we call a great disturbance. Something in their lives makes people question the foundation of their thinking and they go searching for answers. This could be the death of a loved one, the questioning of a good friend, or just a nagging sense that something isn’t adding up.

If you are having a great disturbance, maybe it’s time you considered going through the river. The book, Through the River: Understanding Your Assumptions About Truth should be available August 2009.

Trying to see straight

In our upcoming book about truth, we coined the phrase "truth lens." This is a term that means the same thing as "epistemology." What does that mean you ask? It is the study of knowledge and everyone has an epistemology built into their worldview.

The significance of this is that underneath all of the things you know and the ideas you believe in is a set of assumptions about truth that guide your thinking. These assumptions have a tremendous impact on your daily life. The problem is that they are beneath the surface and so it is easy to skim over your truth lens and focus on the practical issues of the day.

Our hope by introducing this term "truth lens" is to make the idea accessible to you and to help you understand the truth lens with which you see the world. Once you understand your truth lens, your faith, relationships and outreach will make much more sense.

So we hope you will buy the book and follow this blog as we interact about this subject.
