Popular Apologist Corrects the Record
on What Christianity Is All About
The Christianity our culture rejects may not be true Christianity at all. So many people today believe they have to be good to be accepted by God, or that the Bible is just a list of do's and don'ts, or that God is far away and unapproachable.
Instead of providing "proofs" about God and the Bible, in this book Alex provides a reason to want to know Jesus. By sharing his own story of the loneliness and alienation of his youth, Alex taps in to universal fears of rejection and loneliness. We all seek acceptance and purpose--and there's only one solution. Learn how to be anchored in the Truth and security that comes through Christ.
Maybe We've Been Wrong About God All This Time
"Our buddy Alex McFarland is helping this generation understand who Jesus truly is. He presents the truth clearly and without compromise. For those who want to be equipped to 'live loud' for Jesus, or for those who are asking themselves, 'Is all this God stuff really true?' grab a copy of this book!"--David and Jason, The Benham Brothers
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.
