Through the River

Posted: December 7, 2009 in Uncategorized

Through the River is a new book by John and Mindy Hirst.  This book challenges us to examine what we believe about truth and how what we believe effects those we come into contact with.  In this book truth is presented through three “lenses” and explained using a metaphor about a town and a river that runs through it. (Brad Pitt isn’t in this one!!)

The one line that really stuck in my head in this book is the one used to summarize the critical realist truth lens.  It views truth as “the truth we know and the truth we are learning.”
