Is truth relevant? In a philosophical and theological approach "In Defense of Truth" challenges the validity of the traditions and practices of the Jewish, Christian and Catholic religions. Is truth relevant to religious belief, or is the basis of salvation best achieved by deception and religious myth? The author uses the Bible as the basis and sole authority for determining the validity of tradition and practice. "In Defense of Truth" begins with a dialogue between a Rabbi and a Priest on the contrasting approaches used to satisfy the spiritual needs of the people, and then continues with a closer look at the practices of each of these three religions, as well as an approach to other theological/philosophical attempts to serve the spiritual needs of the people.Without getting into a detailed analysis of these practices the author is able to assess these problems with enough information and provides direction so that the reader will be enticed to seek further confirmation of his/her belief structure. Is it built on fable and myth, or is it solidly based upon Biblical mandates that direct our path to righteousness? While "In Defense of Truth" presents challenges, it also offers solutions based upon Biblical mandates.
