From the Publisher
"Reading this book will change the way you think about yourself, God, the Christian life, and maybe a few other things along the way! Bypassing centuries of unbiblical 'Christian' teaching, Ralph Harris brilliantly returns us to the start of the Christian life--what happens at the new birth--and shows the wonder of God's plan to express His life through each believer. If you've wondered why the Christian life as generally taught doesn't entirely work, this book is for you!"
--David Gregory, author of the bestselling Dinner with a Perfect Stranger
"I just finished reading God's Astounding Opinion of You today and wanted to say how much I enjoyed the book. The author has a real gift for communicating the truth of who we are in Christ and of our Father's ridiculously over-the-top love in a way that really communicates. I found it hard to put down the book every time I started reading it. I especially appreciated the personal transparency and nonreligious approach in sharing the message. Some books are enjoyable but forgettable. Others are memorable and inspirational. Now and then you'll come across one that is transformational. This book fits in the last category. I guarantee those who read it with a hungry heart won't be disappointed."
--Steve McVey, president of Grace Walk Ministries
"This book will seriously spoil you for the religion of rules and the futile attempt to keep them! It will also lead you to the heart of the real Gospel--relationship with the God who passionately loves you. This is a must read for those weary of aimless wandering in religious systems while knowing that there must be more to knowing God than what they presently experience. There is and this book will show you the way. May the blessing of God rest on the book that it may be used to bring life and hope to all who read it."
--Malcolm Smith, president of Unconditional Love International
"Ralph reminds us in a refreshing way that we are not on our own when it comes to pleasing God. It is Christ in us who shines forth His glory. And we can rest in the knowledge that He is able to accomplish in us and through us all that we are called to be."
--Twila Paris, Dove Award winning singer/songwriter and author
"Something happened to me when I was reading Ralph Harris's book. I thought I had a pretty good grasp on how God sees me. I truly had not seen how little I believed it! Ralph's engaging style convinced me anew that God isn't twisting my arm to get me to do things His way; instead, He invites me to discover how uncomplicated it can be to walk with Him, yielding simply to the Holy Spirit as I take a breath and wait in the glorious moment of the 'intentional pause.' I am changed, and it feels wonderful."
--Sue Thompson, author of The Prodigal Brother
"I love what Ralph has done with God's Astounding Opinion of You! Ralph has captured--and effectively communicated--what God thinks of us. By claiming God's opinion, rather than that of the various negative forces that surround on a daily basis, we can change our lives so that they really work (more and better than we ever dreamed of). Once this concept is a constant in our lives, the climax of this collection of wonderful stories and biblical truths is an increased attraction to God and a desire for more and more of Him!"
--Marita Littauer, president of CLASServices Inc.
"Spending a couple of hours with Ralph leaves me refreshed and charged up, ready to see what God will do next. Reading this book is very much like sitting down with Ralph over coffee--he writes that well. But the message of this book is the best part. Don't miss out on this surprising and clear exploration of grace!"
--Tom Beaman, senior pastor, Grace Evangelical Free Church
"I've been a Christian for 38 years and in full-time ministry for 30 years, and this is the best book I've ever read. It does the best job of explaining the grace of God and God's astounding opinion of you that I have ever seen. It is inspiring and uplifting in a way that you feel as if you're having a conversation with the author. It is easy to read but full of profound truths. I would be surprised if it didn't change everyone's life who reads it. Do yourself a big favor and read this book."
--Mike Quarles, coauthor, Freedom from Addiction, director of Grace Walk Recovery Ministry
"Dynamic communicator Ralph Harris invites you on an exhilarating journey to discover the person God has so gracefully handcrafted you to be. If you're not sure of your place in the Kingdom or if you've lost that sense of closeness to the King, this book can change all of that. I've seen relationships saved and lives rebuilt by the incredible truths revealed in this book. Read it to bask in the breathtaking beauty of God's new creation--and, yes, that means you!"
--Andrew Farley, pastor of Ecclesia, bestselling author of The Naked Gospel and God Without Religion
"Ralph's book is unlike many others out there, and helps me understand God's perfect opinion of me, as a new creation in Christ. His writing reinforces the life-changing perspective of us as people deeply loved and equipped for every good work. I'm reminded to look at others as God sees them, too."
