"This book is not a presentation of certainty.
Rather, it is a taste of larger conversations.
You may identify with some topics and not with others.
You might agree or disagree with my conclusions.
Some of these ideas may be deeply challenging,
while others may seem naive & thoughtless.
That is the wonder and uniqueness of our journeys
and the beauty of dialogue and relationship." - adapted from the Introduction
In his wildly popular novels, The Shack, Cross Roads and Eve,
WM. Paul Young portrayed the Triune God in ways that challenged
and enlightened our thinking - sometimes upending long-held beliefs,
but always centered in the eternal,
all-encompassing nature of God's love.
Now, in Paul Young's first nonfiction book, he again invites us
to revisit our assumptions about God - this time using the Bible,
theological discussion, and personal anecdotes.
Paul encourages us to think through beliefs we've presumed
to be true and consider whether some might actually be lies.
In these pages, you are invited to consider again the wonder and love of our
eternal God. Below are just a few of the "lies" reviewed in this book :
- God is not good
- God blesses my politics
- God is disappointed in me
- God created (my) religion
- God is not involved in my suffering
- God is One alone
The goal of this book is not controversy but conversation.
Mostly, it's about the unconditional, relentless, and everlasting love of God.
