Product Description

We live in an age of polemics. Choices are presented as mutually exclusive and we are given little time to listen. You're either secular or religious. you either believe in the exclusive truth of your own religion or you believe truth is everywhere or impossible to discover. The battle over truth rages on.

But what if truth were a child?

With how much more care and humility would we speak and act if truth was not the result of some war of wills, but a flesh-and-bone living child, a living soul? Humanities scholar and Latter-day Saint George B. Handley charitably invites us to put away the false traditions of the fathers while seeking to lay hold of every good thing wherever it may be found in the world, thereby increasing our faith in the gospel of Jesus Christ.
