From the Back Cover
"The day of self-righteous, religious performing for cheap applause is coming to an end." TrueFaced draws a clear distinction between two very different underlying motives: my determination to please God or to trust Him. The resulting difference from these two starting points could not be more profound. One results in a striving that never feels it has done enough to please Him. The other results in a trust that experiences His full pleasure. Our motives as followers of Christ will either keep us in unresolved sin and immaturity or free us into God's astonishing dream for our life. [PUT IN BURST] Use with the TrueFaced Experience Guide and DVD. "In a world where duplicity is rampant, to live with 'unveiled faces' is a great gift and is the noble dream behind TrueFaced." --John Ortberg, author of Everybody's Normal Till You Get to Know Them "TrueFaced describes the kind of life I aspire to live--a life motivated by trusting God and others around me." --Joseph Stowell, president, Moody Bible Institute "One of the best books on practical theology I have seen." --Dallas Willard professor; author of Renovation of the Heart
