Summary

LESS > Fake; LESS > Shame; LESS > Masks; MORE > Real.

Jesus promises ‘life and life to the full’. So why do so many people walk away from faith - and not just teenagers but people who have been in church for years?  

The full life offered is one of genuine relationship with God and others, but has our tendency to fight vulnerability, mask weakness and hide disappointment cost us the real thing? Have we tried to keep it together, keep the faith, until we simply can’t do it anymore?  

Following Jesus should not require fronts: when we fully grasp the love of God towards us, in all our mess and sin and doubt, we experience the freedom that vulnerability, honesty and sacrifice brings. That’s real life - life to the full.  

MORE> Real explores how we can build lives on truth, and cultivate a real faith that lasts through the storms of life.

Challenges the picture perfect image we present.

A must read for a More Authentic Life. Its straight to the point, grounded in biblical truths with laugh out loud moments.
Vulnerability is worven throughout the narrative.

Telling it as it is

Sick of Christians beating around the bush? In this book Jon brown just tells it as it is. Struggling in silence and not sure you could talk to another Christian about your struggles? This book might make you feel differently. More Real is an efficient and honest, biblical look at the good fight for the Christian faith.
