Abstract: We live in a culture that is characterized by a definition of truth based more on emotion than on evidence. We study a Bible that says that Truth is a person and not a concept and that we can know the Truth and be freed as a result. In the collision of opposite worldviews, biblical discipleship is allowing our story to be absorbed into the grand story that is life as a Jesus-follower.
