The Right Questions: Truth, Meaning & Public DebatePhillip E. Johnson
InterVarsity Press, (softbound edition), 191 pages, 2002
Phillip Johnson helped shape the Intelligent Design movement by teaching people how to ask the right questions.ï¿½ The ID movement is not about having all the answers.ï¿½ Itï¿½s about teaching people how to ask all the right questions.ï¿½
In this important book, released in October 2002, The Right Questions: Truth, Meaning & Public Debate, Professor Johnson teaches us how to put a variety of contemporary topics on the witness standï¿½such as education, science, logic, tolerance, gender and libertyï¿½and unwrap the confusion by asking the right questions. You will also find a very personal reflection from Phillip Johnson as he relates how a debilitating stroke gave him a new perspective on the The Right Questions.
Johnson deftly demonstrates how the reigning naturalistic philosophy not only squelches public debate but also constrains us to ask the wrong questions. Unless we start with the right questions, Johnson argues, our discussions will be framed by the assumptions of that very philosophy which must be challenged.ï¿½ A few of the questions Johnson puts on the table in this book include:
The foreword to the book by Nancy Pearcey is a bonus worth the price of the book itself.ï¿½ Pearcey, who has been an observer and writer of the origins debate for many years, explains in the 19-page foreword why Phillip Johnson is a great strategist.ï¿½ She also explains why the Intelligent Design movement was able to form around Johnsonï¿½s two simple strategies to: 1) unite theists behind the common theme of esign and 2) divide the practice of science from the worldview of philosophical naturalism.ï¿½ If you want to understand the history of the intelligent design movement in a nutshell, and the pivotal role that Phillip Johnson played, then read the forward by Nancy Pearcey.
If you have a son or daughter in college I recommend you get them a copy of this book immediately.ï¿½ If you went through college and only learned how to regurgitate what you had been taught, then I recommend you get yourself a copy of this book ASAP.ï¿½ You may find yourself starting over as Johnson helps you break free of the intellectual and spiritual captivity of materialism by asking the right questions.
