Review

"These days I recommend The Cure more than any single book in my library." Stephen Hayner, Ph.D. President; Columbia Theological Seminary

"No other resource has had such a profound impact on my life, other than the Bible." Dave Dravecky Retired Major League Pitcher San Francisco Giants

"This is the rarest of books." Roberta Hestenes International Minister of World Vision

From the Back Cover

We thought we were cured. We thought so, but most of us unwittingly carried an old, dead outlook into our new life. We couldn't measure up to a standard we created, so we convinced ourselves it was God's. We read his words through our grid of shame and felt ourselves fall farther and farther behind. We took it out on each other, judging, comparing, faking, splintering. Some of us retreated from the whole charade, becoming cynical, mistrusting, jaded from hope. Our marriages, churches, families, friendships, our marketplaces, our culture... they all need the cure.
But God's cures rarely come in the form we expect. 
What if, indeed, God is not who we think he is... and neither are we?

This book has literally turned my world upside down and inside out! It is without a doubt the most significant book I've read since becoming a follower of Jesus! Through The Cure I've come to realize over the years I had been really good at wearing masks. This book has not only helped me to see me for who I really am, but it has also helped me to see God as He really is! As a result the masks are starting to fall off. I've learned through The Cure that God's grace is so amazing that even on my worst day He loves me more than I can comprehend! I now know and understand that His Amazing Grace is "The Cure"! "THE CURE" IS A MUST READ FOR THOSE DESIRING FREEDOM!

I felt alone, ashamed, guilty, hidden, worthless, confused, full of regrets, and at 54 years old I thought my life's dreams had slipped away.
Amidst the overwhelming darkness of crippling depression a stranger walked into my life and handed me this book.
I read it. I wept. I read it some more. I wept some more. I began to understand something that had eluded me for so long.
This little book is filled with more hope and truth than a library full of self-help books.
It changed my life from tired drudging despair to joy, gratitude and love!
In the past I had tried on occasion to read the bible. Not so much because I wanted to but because I thought it was necessary.
After reading "The Cure" I went back to the Good Book and now see the scripture in whole new light. And I do mean LIGHT!
It has deepened my relationship with Christ and my friends and family in ways I never expected. And it has led me to new friends in a community where we love each other without our masks.
In my opinion this is absolutely one of the most life affirming, uplifting books ever written.
Most of us really aren't who we think we are, we are something far better.
Buy it and read it! It may not affect you the same as it has affected me but I promise you will be better for reading it.

This book is a thunderous clap of truths that will drive you toward your true identity in JESUS and awaken you to a deeper and deeper understanding of GRACE. "THE CURE" will inject you with the freedom to drop your masks, destroy your illusions, stop policing those around you and simply trust that the life of Christ in them and in you is enough.

This is one of the best books I've ever read. Get it for yourself. Get it for your Christian friends. Get it for your friends who are not yet Christians. It shows how much God loves us, and how little we need to do to receive that love.

Lies, lies, lies did I say lies, have stolen the joy and pleasure of knowing this God. This book is a must read because it exposes the lies that have entangled us and will bring about healing if you are willing to see God for who He truly is. Not many books now a days move me but this one is timeless and will be a staple in every church. Not only do I highly recommend the book I ordered a case of them to give out to people that have embraced the lie in place of the truth. Shame and guilt have had WAY too much control on our lives instead of peace, wholeness and love. Many of us (including me) have wasted too much of our lives living out of our wounds instead of living free and truly enjoying all that this God and this Life has to offer.

In less then 100 pages these "three amigos" this book is not only well written but each word is placed with the importance of bringing real life to it's readers. I hope and pray that this book will find its way into every persons hands and it will become a staple in every church. I also love the videos that come with the book, they help many of the stories and points come to life, genius simply genius. Get a copy today so that you can enjoy the freedom and love for which you were created for!!!

For those familiar with the TrueFaced Intensives, this book is like going to the seminar and taking impossibly detailed notes. It's all here---the pithy one-liners, the emotive metaphors, and the Gospel message of undeserved, unmerited grace, love, and mercy. Upon first read, I was so blown away that I immediately sought out a group of complete strangers and made an impassioned pitch for the book...and then gave it to them with the giddiness of a child on Christmas morning! This book provides a clear, concise, and eloquent presentation of the Gospel in a manner that connects with post-modern culture and tears apart the veil of sin management that has ensnared the American church for so long. I wholeheartedly endorse this book and the hearts behind it. This message has transformed my life, my marriage, and my calling. Moreover, I am now tasting true freedom in Christ like I had only hoped was possible. This is a must for the burned out, the downcast, the joyless, and the duty bound.

This book is revolutionary in the way that it reminds us that we are not sanctified the moment we become justified (i.e., we are not made Christ-like the moment we put our faith in Christ). And, we cannot and should not hide who we really are at any given moment, no matter how ugly. We must take our masks off and be who we really are as God works to make us Christlike over time. We must also give each other grace when we learn who we really are (living in the room of grace).

Although we may look like caterpillars (sinners), our DNA confirms that we are butterflies (saints). I like this Biblical analogy because it helped me better understand that we are saints who sin rather than sinners who are trying to be saints. Sanctification is God's job and only he can do it.
