Overview

We live in a world of fakers. Rather than being real with each other, we present a carefully crafted persona that hides our faults and magnifies our good qualities. But inside we long to be loved, warts and all. We long to stop hiding from each other--and especially from God.

With candor and clarity, pastor Rick Bezet calls readers to a life built on authenticity, showing that the way to true freedom lies through reclaiming our hearts, reviving our souls, and renewing our minds in light of what God has done for us through Jesus Christ. Through biblical stories and (often funny) personal examples, Bezet encourages readers to live with passion, integrity, and perseverance. He releases readers from the spiritual death that comes with pretending and leads them into a new life characterized by transparency rather than fear.

    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!
