Honestly: Really Living What We Say We Believe
Revision as of 19:53, 8 December 2011 by Tself
Honestly takes a close look at how to actually live by what you believe, not in theory, but in reality. Drawing from how the early church followed Jesus, Moore asks questions about how our own twenty-first century lives don’t measure up to the kind of dedication and commitment the early Christians displayed.
Using his own painful experiences of a broken home and a glib pretense of Christianity as a cover for what was really going on, Moore takes a look at how Christianity often becomes a veneer that hides great pain, loss of faith, or simply a lack of belief that it can actually transform life. Above all, it questions our desire to live life undisturbed by our Christianity, to live Christianity on our terms rather than Christ’s.
The basis of the book is that it really is possible to live a vibrant, passionate life in Christ that changes your relation to the world and the people around you. Moore looks at how suffering, doubt, evil, the frenetic pace and distractions of the digital life, our work, our boredoms, our rebellions and our crises can all be transformed into a real life in Christ that is exciting, alive, and above all, honest.
