This week I am posting about the most influential women in my life.
Nancey Pearcey was a disciple of Francis Schaeffer who once said, "In passing, we should note this curious mark of our own age: the only absolute allowed is the absolute insistence that there is no absolute."
Today many people I meet start and end as a "skeptic". Nancy was instrumental in saving me from an endless loop of skepticism with her book, "Total Truth". She looked at the prevailing worldviews and their lack of reason and their lack of a place in reality, and she set good reasoning forth for a Christian worldview. At the same time, she is critical of evangelicals and our adaptations of poor thinking and an unintellectual gospel.
She has given me a language of communicating faith and for providing sound reasoning in a world lost to postmodernism, shaken by Islam, and caustic toward Christianity. There is no version of truth, there is only Truth, and she drives our minds with our hearts to Christ.
Pearcey is a part of the Company of The Committed and I am thankful she has shared her mind with us.
