I have not come to a definative answer in my mind as to how Nathan Price would define truth, and maybe I'm not suppose to. The exam question is worded "How MIGHT Nathan Price define truth? I can see it "both ways." Nathan's faith, belief in the Holy Bible as the word of God, and his gardening (argument with the "housekeeper" over how to plant the seeds - in a hill or not) reflect a definition of "T"ruth. However, when Nathan compromises on the issue of baptism and says that "sprinkling" would be OK, that in my mind shows "t"ruth. Also, when the plants in the garden do not "bear fruit" and it is explained that there were not the "correct" insects for pollination to occur, I think that would also be "t"ruth. What do you think?

I think that overall he became obsessed with his "Truth". On page 118-119. Orleanna states that he is reborn with a stone in place of his heart. Nathan would accept no more compromises." He felt that God was testing him and he felt he had made a mistake when he bent his will and would not fail God again.
