    AwesomeJoshua shared very practical experiences I don t think that the truth is easy to digest but I would definitely recommend this book to everyone out there, to read it with open mind and heart Stay unbiased and think seriously about God and Scriptures This book is equally important to the people of every faith and religion.

    I loved this book It was a quick and fun read It was honest It was raw This book says a lot of things that many people are probably also feeling but don t think they are allowed to say In the beginning of his book, Joshua asks a key question, Or is it possible to rediscover with fresh eyes a richer andsatisfying understanding of God and spirituality Joshua continues to ask key questions throughout his book Joshua reminds us, You see, I don t think God is afraid of people asking q I loved this book It was a quick and fun read It was honest It was raw This book says a lot of things that many people are probably also feeling but don t think they are allowed to say In the beginning of his book, Joshua asks a key question, Or is it possible to rediscover with fresh eyes a richer andsatisfying understanding of God and spirituality Joshua continues to ask key questions throughout his book Joshua reminds us, You see, I don t think God is afraid of people asking questions Let me highlight a few key points that I particularly enjoyed I don t think God is some distant creator who happens to intervene in human affairs whenever he feels like it No, I believe God is found in the very depths of humanity the very core of all that is Yes, we should be challenged to think about where God is Is God at our core Is God at the core of all that is Many people stay away from religion Why Joshua says it is because, I seriously believe religion has screwed up a lot of people by using fear I too believe that this is true I don t want a religion of fear I also don t think God wants us to fear Him Her Religion of fear is created by humans, not God You see, God is present in every moment of our lives when we re playing with kids, making love, watching T.V., walking the dog, or even mowing the lawn The question is Are we aware This is so true God is always present It is us who forget this Life is much fuller when we live aware that God is ever present So why would God expect us to love others unconditionally, yet with God, there are conditions Great point This just makes sense God loves all of us unconditionally Many people don t believe this Many people have a difficult time accepting God s love Jesus came to reveal the heart of God Jesus loved everyone We all have a seat at his table For many Christians, salvation is about dying and going to heaven But what if salvation is much deeper than that A little bit later, Joshua goes on to ask, If so, let me push it even further What if God is already in everyone I will admit, this resonates with me I too believe that God is in me This is a life changer Once you know that God is in you, you begin living your life as an expression of this inner God Toward the end of the book, Joshua makes a key point Give up the desire to know it all Be willing to embrace mystery We don t need to have all the answers I don t want to have all the answers I simply want to enjoy the ride Read his book Keep questioning You are unconditionally loved by God God is within you And most of all embrace God s mystery

    This was interesting from the point of view of an insight into a representative of the so called extreme grace teachers and an overview of some of the kind of new thinking going on Evenprogressive theology than I expected, affected by McClaren and Bell etc He is right about the shifts that are happening in the Christian world today, much of it fueled by greater use of the internet and social media But it is very basic and introductory and subjective, given that he is suggesting a to This was interesting from the point of view of an insight into a representative of the so called extreme grace teachers and an overview of some of the kind of new thinking going on Evenprogressive theology than I expected, affected by McClaren and Bell etc He is right about the shifts that are happening in the Christian world today, much of it fueled by greater use of the internet and social media But it is very basic and introductory and subjective, given that he is suggesting a total rethink of Christianity I guess he is just making his contribution to the worldwide conversation And that s fair enough

    Brilliant This is an absolutely brilliant book that boldly explores ideas about God, the bible and life connected to love outside of status quo religious thought It is a must read for anyone who has had that feeling way deep inside that thereto God than you were taught in Sunday school.

    I found this book to really hit the nail on the head in regard to the way I ve been feeling and the questions I ve been having over the past few years I grew up as a church going christian who didn t question anything The last few years I ve been very dissatisfied with organized religion and I began wondering about some of the basics I had been taught over the years I really began questioning myself for having these thoughts and feelings It s books like this one that really encourages me a I found this book to really hit the nail on the head in regard to the way I ve been feeling and the questions I ve been having over the past few years I grew up as a church going christian who didn t question anything The last few years I ve been very dissatisfied with organized religion and I began wondering about some of the basics I had been taught over the years I really began questioning myself for having these thoughts and feelings It s books like this one that really encourages me and helps me realize nothing is wrong with me, but maybe something is wrong with the things we are told in the system of organized church In this book, questions are asked and ideas are suggested that really make you think I am so thankful for Joshua being so open and honest and for bringing things up that make me want to questionand search deeper into what I truly believe I found this book to be informative, interesting and easy to read I highly recommend it, but be ready to be rocked in a good way on some of the traditional doctrines and beliefs you have been taught


  6. Betty G. Bourquein Betty G. Bourquein says:

    Being Honest With God and OneselfA true believer has to answer many questions for himself herself Does one s religion get in the way of his her spirituality Is one s god too small to be God Do we allow others define God for us Isn t the real believer a seeker rather than one with all of the defined answers he she has been taught Written in a very simplistic style, Tongol asks some complex questions.

    QuestionsJoshua does a great job explaining the mysteries of the Bible He takes a long look at problems that many Christians do not want to deal with He allows the reader to question what he is saying Not just an opinion, he gives credible references to support his theme He also encourages the reader to struggle with these references as well as the mysteries the Bible has.Thought provoking and an easy read.


  8. Andy Andy says:

    A simple read but with challenging points and reflections by someone who was a pastor fully in the evangelical charismatic world Whether you agree or not with his thoughts, what is written demands a response.

    An authentic and honest story Very authentic, down to earth honest story I am very inspired by this book Most of all I find the author very warm and funny, I laughed a lot especially the chapters about the satan and the Bible..because I related to everything he said

    Great Josh will clear up some questions you have had in the back of your head God loves you, and everyone else If it doesn t end in a love for God, yourself, and others all at the same time you have something greater to see
