In 2016, the Oxford English Dictionary named “post-truth” as their word of the year. In 2019, Westerners are quite possibly even more confused about what is real and what is not. In today’s episode, host Davies Owens asks Abdu Murray about his new book, Saving Truth: Finding Meaning and Clarity in a Post-Truth World. Murray shares his faith journey to Christianity, defines what it means to live in a post-truth culture, and encourages Christians, especially college students, to respond with integrity to the arguments swirling around them.
Abdu Murray is the North America director of RZIM (Ravi Zacharias International Ministries), a regular speaker at churches and on college campuses, and host of the radio program and podcast Embrace the Truth with Abdu Murray. He is the author of three books, including his latest, Saving Truth: Finding Meaning and Clarity in a Post-Truth World.
For most of his life, Abdu was a proud Muslim who studied the Qur’an and Islam. After a nine year investigation into the historical, philosophical, and scientific underpinnings of the major world religions and views, Abdu discovered that the historic Christian faith can answer the questions of the mind and the longings of the heart.
Abdu holds a BA in Psychology from the University of Michigan and earned his Juris Doctor from the University of Michigan Law School. As an attorney, he was named several times in Best Lawyers in America and Michigan Super Lawyer. Abdu is currently the Scholar in Residence of Christian Thought and Apologetics at the Josh McDowell Institute of Oklahoma Wesleyan University.
