Book Description

Right now, truth is under attack, and much is at stake. Perhaps no one in America is more passionate than John MacArthur about exposing those who are mounting this attack―especially those bringing the assault right into the church.


There is no middle ground―no safe zone for the uncommitted in this war. The battle for truth is raging, and this book reveals:



  • The pitfalls of postmodern thinking

  • Why the Emerging Church Movement is inherently flawed

  • Past skirmishes in the Truth War and their effect on the Church

  • The importance of truth and certainty in a postmodern society

  • How to identify and address the errors and false teachings smuggled into churches

"[The postmodern age] is the age of no truth, an age that has reached a point of deadly fatigue when it comes to facing the truth―a generation that no longer believes truth can be known. Dr. John MacArthur knows better, and he is armed with the courage to confront this age with a bold defense of truth. . . . His argument is compelling, his defense of truth is brilliant, and his concern for the church is evident on every page. The evangelical church desperately needs this book, and it arrives just in time." ―R. Albert Mohler Jr., President, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

5.0 out of 5 stars A Need to Heed... May 25, 2007
By ModRes
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
A number of weeks before this book was announced, I wrote to Dr. MacArthur asking if/when he might write a book such as this. Imagine my delight when I learned that one WAS going to be released and soon!

The Emergent Church is creating havoc within Christendom. Like Gnosticism and the Judaizers of the early church, the blantant error that is coming in like a flood into the modern-day church needs to be brought under the truthful light of Scripture, where it will not survive. That can only happen when faithful and courageous Christians are willing to call into question the very things that are being espoused. Paul, Jude, James, Peter - none of these men hesitated to call error error. Paul especially named names. There MUST be a willingness among Christians today to stand against the error in whatever form it comes. The Bereans even applied Paul's teachings to the litmus test of the Scriptures and it did not bother Paul at all. In fact, he seemed to applaud it! Yet, when what is being taught today is questioned, then those asking the questions are accused of being "legalists," "hatemongers," or "divisive." If this is so, then certainly Christ was "divisive" as was Paul, Jude, James, Peter and numerous others who stood against the tide of lies that literally sprang from Satan's domain.

Too often in today's desire to be ecumenically "inclusive," not only are lies allowed, but they are often encouraged, as if the lie itself does no harm and is simply a matter of denominational variance. In truth, many of the lies that are being promulgated by Brian McLaren, Tony Campolo, Rick Warren and others attack the very foundation upon which Christianity rests!

Dr. MacArthur's book could not have come at a more appropriate time in the life of the church. I pray that its message will be heeded by true Christians everywhere. The fight for truth is not an option.

5.0 out of 5 stars Came at just the right time! May 13, 2007
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I live in the Denver, CO, area. I am the host of Let's Pray!, a radio vignette nationally syndicated on 328 stations, the author of a Scripture-based prayer guide, PRAYING IN THE WORD OF GOD, and the co-director with my husband, Dr. Paul Grant, of THE BREAD OF LIFE FOUNDATION.

Having been saved at the age of 30 out of an atheistic background, I have been astonished by the lack of Biblical belief and obedience by the majority of Christians in America. My husband and I have taught prayer to 24 denominations in 21 states and have found an appalling lack of love for Jesus, for prayer, for obedience to Christ, and for Biblical truth. We've often wondered in the last 29 years whether we're insane. We are often alone, often persecuted, yet madly in love with Jesus!

This book, more than anything else, has answered the question "are we insane?" with a resounding, "no!" We are not insane to stand up for the absolute truth of the Word of God. We are not insane to judge Christian leaders by that truth. We are not insane even though we often feel so alone! Jesus Christ is worthy. He has always been resisted by those who oppose Him.

We are forever grateful to Dr. MacArthur for giving us a historical perspective of the opposition to "the Truth" and for giving us so much needed support. I will never be so easily disuaded from standing for the true Gospel of Jesus Christ. This book is a life saver for me and for my husband! I know, now, that I ought to expect this kind of perversion of truth, I ought to count in pure joy to suffer persecution for Christ's sake, and I must continue speaking the truth in love knowing full well that many will not receive it.

More persecution lies ahead as the days grow more wicked. May Jesus Christ be pleased with my life and service! May I hear from Him, "Well done, my good and faithful servant!" And may you, too, hear those wonderful words!

Amen. Come, Lord Jesus!

A book usually has to be released before it gets talked about. Makes sense, right?

Not so with The Truth War by John MacArthur. This book had people talking months ago. Would it be another Ashamed of the Gospel? Would MacArthur again call out by name those within Evangelicalism who diminish truth in favor of crowd-pleasing methods and theology? Would this be the bomb on the Emergent/Emerging battleground?

What MacArthur actually does is to exegete the book of Jude, with special emphasis on verses 3-4,

Beloved, while I was very diligent to write to you concerning our common salvation, I found it necessary to write to you exhorting you to contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints. For certain men have crept in unnoticed, who long ago were marked out for this condemnation, ungodly men, who turn the grace of our God into lewdness and deny the only Lord God and our Lord Jesus Christ.

Jude wrote with urgency, knowing that false teachers within the church (apostates) were wrecking spiritual havoc among Christians. MacArthur defines apostasy as, "Soul-destroying error that arises from within the church. ...It speaks of abandonment, a separation, a defection- the abdication of truth altogether."

And where is the spirit of apostasy most found in today's church? Postmodernism. MacArthur believes postmodernism warps the way Evangelicals think and talk about truth. No longer is truth conceived as that "which was once for all delivered to the saints." Instead, "hermeneutical humility" trumps all concern for Biblical orthodoxy.
