From the author of the 20 million-plus-copy best-selling novel The Shack and the New York Times best sellers Cross Roads and Eve comes a compelling, conversational exploration of the wrongheaded ideas we sometimes have and share about God.
Wm. Paul Young has been called a heretic for the ways he vividly portrays God's love through his novels. Here he shares 33 commonly uttered and sometimes seemingly innocuous things we say about God. Paul exposes these as lies that keep us from having full, loving relationships with our creator.
With personal anecdotes, and sharing the compassion felt from the "Papa" portrayed in The Shack - soon to be a major film starring Sam Worthington and Octavia Spencer - Paul encourages listeners to think anew about important issues including sin, religion, hell, politics, identity, creation, and human rights and helps us discover God's deep and abiding love.

"Thoughtful and mind provoking"
It was amazing how many of the ideas I grew up with which made me not even want to think about God. I feel as though a light switch has been flipped and see God in a completely different light. Really makes one think about their own relationship with God.
This author always incites me to think deeper, better things about God and my relationship with Him. Very good book!
Paul Young shares his insights into the character and heart of God, revealing the lies we so often find easier to believe than the truth. Rich and powerful stories paint a beautiful picture throughout the book raising important questions and inviting the reader to deeper conversations. All is written in the name of Love and relationship.
"Another amazing book by Wm.Paul Young fantastic A+"
This is an another amazing book by Wm. Paul Young. I can't say enough about the wonderful, beautiful, truths he finds in scripture. The way he paints the beautiful picture of God our Father and Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit was inspiring. I would recommend this to everyone the world could do with more real love ,God's love.
"Lies we believe about god"
Thought I was on the right track however since reading Lie's we believe about god I now can say with all my heart that I'm on my way.amen
"Spiritually Inspiring , Mindi and Heart Opening"
W. Paul Young has in a very eloquent and simple way dealt with many of my preconceived notions of who God is and where we fit into Creation!
This is one of the best books I have read/listened to in my life. I have been a follower of Jesus for 30+ years and spent 5+ years in vocational ministry. This book puts more words to the things I believe then anything else I have read to date.
I can't say that I agree with everything said in the book. I'm at about 98% but it was a great thought provoking read.
"Opened my eyes and my heart"
Listening to this book opened my eyes and my heart to the truth that relationships and love really is what matters. I didn't agree with all of Paul's perceptions and it did help me to stop and think about what I do truly believe and desire in my relationship with God. After listening to the audio book I did buy the paperback -I still like holding great books and being able to read and reread passages. It's a great listen, read and reread book.
"Eternity Never Looked So GodlyGood"
I received Paul's fond embrace 29th October 2014 (Syracuse), where our Jesus became visible... accessible
