Together the essays in this volume seek to explore the place of Christianity, the Church and their claims to uphold the truth in an age of `post-truth'. Beginning with a consideration of truth within the biblical tradition, the chapters come from historical, theological and philosophical starting points in their concerns, setting out the groundwork for discussions of Christian truth and science, prayer, ethics and the liturgy.
