I've read a lot of theology books as a Christian reviewer, and this one is good. It revolves around grace and talks a lot about how people--Christian or otherwise--tend to put up masks that hide their real identity. People like to appear independent and polished on the outside when they are really rotting on the inside. Two rooms are used in this book. One is the Room of Good Intentions, and the other is the Room of Grace. The former involves works and trying to make God love us; the latter is where God's forgiveness transforms you and you come to grow into a deeper relationship with the Only One who loves you with unrelenting love that can never be diminished. My only criticism on this book is that it does not address trying to combat sin. The angle is that one should rest in grace. Granted, when one is fully in grace, they should want to obey God and be better about not sinning. Still, the book does a good job in showing readers to reveal their true selves and be TrueFaced in every sense of the word. The way I see it, if you never take off your mask, you may be preventing others from seeing God shine through you. Love Christ; He deserves it.

TrueFaced by Bill Thrall, Bruce McNicol, and John S. Lynch When I selected this book to review, I was somewhat unsure of what I was going to get. A few days later, the book came in the mail, and I soon sat down to read it. The book is about being honest with fellow (trustworthy) Christian brothers and sisters. Many of us seem to wear imaginary masks, hiding our true struggles and feeling because we don't know how to share them, or have been hurt when we shared them before. Overall, I must say I was encouraged. The book was inspiring, and I was reminded to be honest with both myself and with others, as well as the face that I must be gracious to them as well. The authors had quite a few good points, some of which I had never thought of before and other which I had simply never heard put the same way they put it. However, I must also say that I had a hard time getting "into" the book. Not that I didn't like it, but it just did not seem to grab my attention very well. This could very well have just been me, or perhaps it stems from the fact that I did not have the opportunity to do this with a small group. (Which is recommended in the book.) My rating: Overall, I think I would recommend this book. I did not notice anything objectionable within, and the content was quite thought provoking. TrueFaced gets 8 out of 10 stars. Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from NavPress Publishers as part of their Blogger Review Program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
