Warning! This book will mess with you! When I read this book, I was thinking, "Yeah, there are fakers all around me; boy do THEY need this book!" But then I started digging into thinking through areas of my life where I've been faking it, or where I've been self-deceived or not honest about things I deal with, and I realized that this book is not just for everybody else. It's for me, too. It's an easy read, good for anybody. It's really good for helping you understand what some Bible stories mean, especially for people like me who don't easily "get it." This is a very practical book - has humor, is punchy sometimes. It helped me understand that God doesn't "have it out" for me. God's not trying to destroy me. I like that. Overall, I would recommend this book to anybody who needs a fresh perspective on the character and nature of God and a fresh understanding on how God views us. So good, so good!
