Confessions of a Good Christian Guy: Book Review

  1. I think this is a true issue in the church today. We are far from authentic and the pressure is there to keep the facades up. Great Article. Coughlin has a book called No more Christian Nice Guy and it deals with men being and not being men who hide behind the false persona. Or like John Eldridge called POSERS.
    I pray we can have wobble room in the church so we can be real. David Murrow also has one called Why Men Hate to go to Church that is good.Excellent Elysa.

  2. This looks like a great book about the very real issue, as you point out, of feeling at times like we need to wear masks as Christians. How can we possibly hope to ‘bear one anothers burdens’ if we don’t know what they are? Thanks for writing about this book, and I pray that more read it, and begin to walk transparently BESIDE one another in our walks before God and man. Bless you.

  3. Thanks for your comments, James.

    We’ve, unfortunately, seen in our own lives how rejection can occur when we seek to be authentic with the people around us. I refuse to go back into the prison of “fakeness” that I used to maintain at all costs but at the same time, I realize that not everyone appreciates realness and I try to find the balance of being authentic and also being wise.

    Its sad to see how many in church leadership today can not handle an honest and authentic church membership.
