In Kingdom Triangle, J. P. Moreland shows that, instead of retreating from the dual onslaught of naturalism and postmodernism, Christianity offers the only solid basis for a life with richness and meaning.

Chapters 1-4 form Part 1, entitled “Assessing the Crisis of Our Age.” Chapters 5-7 form Part 2, entitled “Charting a Way Out: The Kingdom Triangle.” The book also contains a forward by Dallas Willard, as well as a Conclusion and Postscript by J.P. Moreland. In addition, 15 pages of annotated bibliography and 8 pages of endnotes augment the text.
