The Intolerance of Tolerance
Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing, 2012 - 186 ページ
Tolerance currently occupies a very high place in Western societies: it is considered gauche, even boorish, to question it. In The Intolerance of Tolerance, however, questioning tolerance -- or, at least, contemporary understandings of tolerance -- is exactly what D. A . Carson does.
Carson traces the subtle but enormous shift in the way we have come to understand tolerance over recent years -- from defending the rights of those who hold different beliefs to affirming all beliefs as equally valid and correct. He looks back at the history of this shift and discusses its implications for culture today, especially its bearing on democracy, discussions about good and evil, and Christian truth claims.
Using real-life examples that will sometimes arouse laughter and sometimes make the blood boil, Carson argues not only that the "new tolerance" is socially dangerous and intellectually debilitating but also that it actually leads to genuine intolerance of all who struggle to hold fast to their beliefs.

D.A. Carson's insights of "old and new" tolerance.ユーザー レビュー - Christianbook.com
This book is a must read for all (Christians and Non-Christians alike), but especially the officers of the Church. The meaning of tolerance in our culture today is to restrict free thinking and promotes the "watering down" of Scripture. It is tied to the so called "political correctness" of the day and too many have bought the lie. D.A. Carson does an exceptional job of walking us through the PC maze and puts things into perspective.
