    One thought on “Honestly”

    1. Johnnie Moore’s thoughtful and challenging book Honestly takes a close look at how to actually live by what you believe, not in theory, but in reality. In a time when the true reality of what it means to be a follower of Christ seems to be quickly dwindling, this book is a seriously important and vital work. Drawing from how the early church followed Jesus, Moore asks questions about how our own twenty-first century lives don’t measure up to the kind of dedication and commitment the early Ch [...]

    2. In Honestly: Really Living What We Say We Believe, Johnnie Moore, vice president and campus pastor of Liberty University, challenges readers to live an authentic Christian life. He argues that one of the chief problems with Christians, particularly those in the US and other developed countries, is that we have become hypocrites, whether intentionally or otherwise. We need to start living what we say we believe.I found this book to be inspiring. Through a variety of stories and musings, Moore unp [...]

    3. This book was much better than I expected. I was moved, challenged, encouraged and blessed by this book in many ways. Using a lot of stories, illustrations and his own life experience, Moore presents a book that would be very beneficial to every Christian in the Western world, who has grown apathetic to the vibrant Christian life and has instead settled for a dry, lifeless cultural christianity.In fact, this is one of the very few books about which I can confidently say that the author accomplis [...]

    4. I really enjoyed reading this book and the author's insight within it. I think it was James who said that we, as Christians should be "doers" of the Word, not just "hearers". As busy as our lives are today, this is difficult, but this book gives very practical ways in which to begin, improve or continue on this path. Probably the most profound comment I took away was from the author of the Foreward, Joni Eareckson-Tada (not to take anything away from Johnnie Moore). She has spent more than four [...]

    5. As Christians we are challenged to live our lives according to God's word. But the temptations of the world and our feelings draw us away making us hypocrites in our faith. We are all sinners but the prize is to be more like Christ so it is time to step up to the challenge. God set the bar pretty low, for if you have read the ten commandments it's really pretty simple. I am up for it but are you?

    6. The author had some good things to say about living out the gospel honestly, but I didn't find anything he said earth-shattering or radically different from other challenges I've read in recent years to live out our faith in real, tangible ways. The part I found the most convicting and redeeming was the author's look at moving beyond faithful perseverance to radical, compelling mission.
