Questions about the meaning of human history, truth and liberty, education and religion in our pluralistic society. Questions about God and God's Word, Jesus Christ.
Johnson deftly demonstrates how the reigning natualistic philosophy not only quenches public debate but also constrains our discussions to ask the wrong questions. For unless we start with the right questions, the ensuing deliberation will be framed by the assumptions of that very philosophy which must be challenged.
Johnson believes that even the Christian church has far too often passively accepted this alien frame of mind to the detriment of all. Rather, Christian faith and conviction ought to lead the way in opening up the search for truth and meaning through the kind of public education that "teaches the controversey." Then all citizens will be prepared to engage in lively, informed and civil debate about controverted but irrepressible questions concerning the meaning of life itself.
Provocative, personal, persuasive and prophetic, The Right Questions is certain to help us break free from our intellectual and spiritual captivity.
