The Cure: What if God isn't who you think He is and neither are you? Paperback – December 13, 2011
There is a newer edition of this item:
"These days I recommend The Cure more than any single book in my library." Stephen Hayner, Ph.D. President; Columbia Theological Seminary

"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.

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.
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!!!
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.
