Exceptional book, topic with major flaw at end.
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I would highly recommend this book for anyone seeking a reasonable, rational exposition on a Christian worldview and a vigorous and needed dissembling of Darwinian scientism.This is a great book for a Christian thinker and a good challenge to the feel good wave of Christianity that is doing great damage to the Church, ceding precious ground to secularists who seek to compartmentalize Christianity as just another form of spiritism and to simply dismiss it from public debate in the areas of science, history, etc. This book asserts that the naturalist/materialist worldview is as religious as any other belief system cloaking itself in science, and that it's a worldview that shuns all truth that does not conform to their naturalist paradigm.The major flaw in this book is in the fourth section, where Pearcey discusses the evangelist movement in the colonies and later United States. She reveals her personal bias. She's obviously Reformed/Lutheran and dismisses any theological challenge to Calvinism as "anti-intellectual." While this section is still filled with worthwhile history, her conclusions are the weakest in the entire book and is rather sad way to end what is otherwise an amazing thesis on the Christian Worldview.

If you could sum up Total Truth in three words, what would they be?
Satisfying, Genuine, Scholarly
Who was your favorite character and why?
Though it wasn't a narrative, it definitely had characters (hundreds of philosophers, scientists, ministers and more were cited!) My favorite was Francis Schaeffer, a powerful witness who showed true hospitality and love towards those he ministered to.
What about Kate Reading’s performance did you like?
I read the book at 3x the normal speed so her pronunciation and accurate rendition of the work's construction were invaluable.
