Review

A thought-provoking reexamination of the age-old grace vs. works issue with a fresh contemporary spin. -- Christian Retailing, October 6, 2003

This interesting, in-depth title...[will] interest Christian leaders and those caught in a performance trap. -- CBA Marketplace, September 2003 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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

TrueFaced has become one of my favorite books. the truths found in this book have brought me higher in my christian life than anything else. these authors tell us not to try to take care of our sins, but realize that Jesus has already done this on the cross. we must live, if we've accepted Christ's sacrifice, as though nothing, not even our sin issues, are hindering us from God. only pride, not trusting what God says, can hinder us from this peace. the Bible tells us countless times to live in the new life, to put away the old man. this is what it is talking about. God wants us to trust in Him, not take care of all of our problems. that will come later, He merely wants us to TRUST Him. what did we do in our salvation except believe? nothing. and we must live that even after our justification --that we have no power over our sin, and only God can take care of them. yes, some things are hard to be understood and pursued in this book, but the truth mentioned above and the learning of it is more than worth the price.

TrueFaced is an excellent book in that it provides the reader with not only a concept to consider (the masks that we utilize to present certain, yet falsely construed individual personas) but also an attainable means of working towards a solution to the identified problem (through trusting grace, not works.) I found myself at peace after reading it, not because I was immediately transformed but because I knew that I could be and how.

Make sure not to put the book down if you don't find examples in the first half that you can relate to, the second half is much easier to identify with and well worth the read.

TrueFaced is an absolutely incredible book that every Christian should read. So many of us hide behind masks, hoping that people will love and accept us more if we act a certain way. And unfortunately, in the Christian community, being honest about who you are and what you're struggling with isn't usually accepted. This is a great book about God's grace and extending grace to other people. It's also very readable and I thought the authors were very humorous. I'm going to recommend this book to a bunch of my friends.

This book will help you see how your own self deception coupled with the worldly Christian teaching from most of todays churches are robbing the joy and purpose from your Christian walk. TrueFaced does an excellent job of identifing the problem but falls short on what exactly to do about it. For that I would strongly recommend "Gace Walk" by Dr. Steve McVey. We are to be Galation 2:20 Christians, and these two books point the way. Both are MUST READ books, a requirement!

I am extremely impressed with this presentation of grace. So frequently, we, the church, treat this subject as though everyone ought to know what it is to live in grace, but this book teaches us not only what grace is but how to enter it. Grace is such a foreign concept in this world and drastically contrasts what the world would have us believe. This is an awesome study for each of us to do either indivuidually or in a group.

If you are struggling to smile and put on a "mask" when you see people then you must read this book. If you are hurting inside and have to put up a front so people see a happy you but inside you are screaming " I say I'm fine but everything is NOT fine, in fact I'm such a mess I don't know what to do!", then this book is for you. If you are a newer Christian and want to know how to get closer to God and how you can really be the person He intended you to be then get this book.We all put up walls and as the years go by they get thicker and thicker until the person we are is not the person we know we should be.This book tells you what you have to do to get "right" with God and find the peace you deserve. This book has helped everyone I know that has read it. I highly recommend it to every Christian out there!

I have read many "self help", personal growth, and Christian books from CS Lewis, Max Lucado, Billy Graham, and Charles Swindoll to name a few. After awhile I found myself still hungry for one I could call home, and just stay with it, to re-read to continue my growth in becoming what God has made me.

This book is it.

Leadership Catalyst have something very special to share, and the founders and authors express it well in this writing

Are you ready for something that will put you into a place where radical life changing things occur? If so, than this is the book for you. Never have I read a book filled with more truth than this one. Each sentence shows the heart of God and his desire for us to be completely vulnerble and open to him and his people. I read this book wearing a mask in front of others, and this book changed me. I just finished reading it, and am in the process of re-reading it. Get this book and watch as God uses it to speak truth into your life!
