Is the REAL you getting lost because the FAKE you is just so annoyingly impressive?


“Stepping onto the platform to preach that morning, I admitted to myself that I was not a pastor first, but a regular, scared, insecure, everyday guy whose life had been changed by Jesus. And if Jesus really loved me as I was (I knew He did), then why should I go on trying to be someone I w...more

Impressively honest.

I think this is a very important book for many people, pastors and laymen alike. It is especially significant coming from a pastor of such a large church who I'd assume has intense pressure of putting up a front. What we receive in this, however, is the gift to be human and not mindless robots that interact with each other. This is not a book to come to if you're trying to understand what the Bible says about the topic of being real or anything like that. To be honest, there...more

10 things Christians think but are afraid to say. This was very good. Many Christians feel a need to "play" Christian. It's not that they don't believe or that their desires to please God are false... but it isn't neccesary to try to look as though you have it all together in order to be pleasing to God. On the contrairy, this gets in the way as it tends to become more "your" doing/scrambling than just resting in Christ and letting him "do through you".

In parts of this book I even found myself...more

Originally Called confession of a pastor Craig Groschel loosely touches on many things that leaders struggle with. If you want to be challenged and open up in growing with your walk and desire not to "fake it" when it comes to how you lead, this book is for you.

I would recommend for anyone in leadership positions. It is written from a pastors perspective, but is applicable to anyone who desire to develop themselves.

This was read in my bible study and discussed in a group. There are questions i...more

A great look at hypocritical Christians, written by a Christian Pastor. He really doesn't like praying. Neither do I. I have ADD praying that goes off on tangents. He struggles to be a good Christian, as do we all (who are Christians). Insightful, honest and with good strategies to try to make yourself a better Christian, not the perfect Christian, just better. A wonderful read for a Christian like me.

I really like this book. The only thing I don't like is that in Weird (his new book) he puts quite a bit of the same stories in it.
Kent Brindley
A great read and beautiful, personal reminder for those of us struggling to retain our Christian identities.
Karen
Everyone who was raised in church should read this book. Especially pastors.
