In Pursuit of Truth by Greg Grandchamp

71vU8PiR+UL._SL1000_[1]This is a great book for the reader who wants to look beyond the here and now to gain meaning and peace. It is easy not to ask all the important questions in life, but the unexamined life is not necessarily a life that many of us would want to live. And this may be precisely why we are so unhappy a lot of the time.

Greg Grandchamp’s book asks the vital questions that we should all ask, “What is the meaning of life?” and “What is Truth?” These questions go to the very heart of who we are as human beings and our purpose here on earth. But we are told many lies by our culture. We are told that truth is relative that there is no real truth. But this precise idea is what makes our life unhappy and unfulfilled.

Many people look for truth and want to find it. But there is a big difference between scientific truth and Eternal truth. Scientific truth can be determined in the world by human beings. And because of this, scientific truths can be changeable and variable. However, the same isn’t the case for Eternal truth. Eternal truth is the only kind of truth that is unchangeable and we can say that it is a capital T truth.

But what is this eternal truth? The answer is in John 8:32 when Jesus says, “I am the way, the truth, and the life.” So, Jesus is the truth. Why is Jesus the truth? Jesus is the truth because Jesus is the son of God. He is the Messiah and the Savior of the world, offering forgiveness of sins and reconciliation. He is the only means through which reconciliation with God is possible. This is the path—the one and only path to truth and wholeness.

So, the choice is ours. We could either live in truth and happiness by making Jesus our Lord and Savior or we can go on living as if God didn’t exist and the truth didn’t matter to us. No one can force us to believe in this truth. But our life will be so much less fulfilling than it could be without knowing and living this truth.

Thank you Greg Grandchamp for such a wonderful book! You certainly will make the reader think of what is most important and true.
