If we can't be honest with ourselves, how can we be honest with God. HONEST TO GOD is a clear and unvarnished look at faith as we know it, in light of the realities of daily life. Hope and disappointment, struggles, defeats and victories, fear and faith, all play a part in who we are and who we will become. It is too often taught that good things always come to the faithful, leaving those who stumble or are knocked from their feet to feel as if they are some how unworthy. Too many of those who claim faith in Christ struggle along the road of life, eyes cast down, a sigh of despair and defeat silently emanating from their hearts as they wonder if they will ever measure up. The breathless mercy of God poured out upon us in grace says yes. The question we are left with is.... will we believe it? The reader will experience through the life stories of others what in some way is true in his or her life. May they experience grace and breathless mercy, causing them to experience true transparency before God and man without fear.

Are you ready to be honest with yourself and with God in order to embrace Christ and experience true transparency in your life? Honest to God by John Brooks was an interesting book, although it took a while for me to really get into it. I had to reread sections of the book once or twice to really grasp the full meaning of the words. However, each time I would reread, I would gain more of an understanding of the author’s intent, and I began to find myself inspired. The way that the book shares the idea of truly being honest with God in order to live in transparency was intriguing. In fact, I have decided to give it a try to see if I can find fulfillment in honesty between myself and God. Overall, while the book does take a bit of time and patience to understand its meaning, I consider it time well spent.
