“Having a Christian worldview means being utterly convinced that biblical principles are not only true but also work better in the grit and grime of the real world.”
Nancy Pearcey, Total Truth: Liberating Christianity from its Cultural Captivity

“The first step in conforming our intellect to God's truth is to die to our vanity, pride, and craving for respect from colleagues and the public. We must let go of the worldly motivations that drive us, praying to be motivated solely by a genuine desire to submit our minds to God's Word - and then to use that knowledge in service to others.”
Nancy Pearcey

“The gospel is like a caged lion,' said the great baptist preacher Charles Spurgeon. 'It does not need to be defended, it simply needs to be let out of it's cage' Today, the cage is our accommodation to the secular/sacred split that reduces Christianity to a matter of personal belief. To unlock the cage, we need to become utterly convinced that, as Francis Schaeffer said, Christianity is not merely religious truth, it is total truth- truth about the whole of reality.”
Nancy Pearcey, Total Truth: Liberating Christianity from its Cultural Captivity
