We call this the information age, but it's also the age of misinformation – especially when it comes to God and Christianity. Many of us believe the Christian God is far away and unapproachable, that we have to be good to be accepted by him, and that the Bible is just an antiquated list of do's and don'ts. But maybe none of that is true. Maybe we've gotten it wrong.
Instead of proofs for God's existence, what we really need are compelling reasons to want to know him, and those reasons are more personal than we sometimes think. Through sharing his own story, author and speaker Alex McFarland shows how the God you thought you knew actually cares about you – about the rejection and loneliness you feel. It's time to replace the half-truths and lies we believe about ourselves with his overwhelming love and forgiveness.
We all want acceptance and purpose. Let this book teach you how to be anchored in the security that comes through knowing God for who he really is.
Alex McFarland’s The God You Thought You Knew: Exposing the 10 Biggest Myths About Christianity tackles myths currently circulating about God, Christianity, and the Bible. He confronts each of his chosen myths with truths in a thought-provoking and accessible manner and makes many helpful points.
