Tired of religion?
What if almost everything you were taught about Christianity is wrong?
Would you give up on faith altogether? Or is it possible to rediscover - with fresh eyes - a richer and more satisfying understanding of God and spirituality?
So You Thought You Knew is a refreshing journey written straight from the heart. It's about thinking outside the "institutional walls" of Christianity and asking the hard questions. It boldly says in public what many people are thinking in private. And its hilarious stories and life-changing insights will inspire those who are dissatisfied with fear-driven religion but believe - deep down - there's a better message out there for the world to hear.

first of all, the audio version of this book really helps me capture and understand this book in a deeper way simply because I hear Joshua's voice and it sounds like it's a personal journal.
I love the simple words that he uses, the book doesn't use overly complicated words but keep it simple so that even children and people of all ages can understand it.
I love this book and really understand it, especially because I was going through a shift and was experiencing the same types of feelings about God too.
My compliment to Joshua Tongol! ☺
"Relief---I'm Not Alone"
The facts presented and the knowledge behind the facts. Also, how straight forward Joshua is...
The knowledge that I finally found a book that I could really relate to. I have felt this same way for a long time. I was raised a Roman Catholic and have struggled since my "catechism" days when I was young. The only thing the nuns could answer to all of my questions was, "because the Bible says so". Needless to say they didn't treat me to well...Which led me to Joshua's other book...I have struggled all of my life and feel that a great deal was due to my childhood/Catholicism.
The two that I have bought on Audible are both amazing---
Heathens No More---Feeling Saved By Pure Love!
I really appreciate Tongol's book recommendations after each chapter, showing how he has been helped and influence by others. This is not to discount his own path, because it is clear throughout that he has continued to discover, and it seems that he himself is surprised by the persistence of revelation making its way into his life. He is simply secure enough to not take all the credit, a confidence that is in itself appealing. I'm pretty impressed that someone in his 30s could traverse so much ground, from quasi-fundamentalism to religious freedom, and not be a prisoner of bitterness while chronicling it so superbly.
"Telling the true rates high!"
The Delivery with humility and honesty make for an easy grasp of the truth amongst a world of false beliefs and false systems
"So nice and it gives you back the freedom to think"
No.................It is a nice extra.
The sudden awareness of the questions that were dorment in my heart for so many years. Suddenly they came to life.
Hard to say.
And the truth will set you free.
Keep sharing and most of all, help people with questions. They are genuine!
