Honestly by Johnnie Moore

If you’re weary of half-hearted, fake Christianity you’re in good company.  Pastor Johnnie Moore encountered hypocrisy in the church at a young age and his life was affected in a big way.  This book evolved out of his own personal frustrations and doubt, and from his search to settle the questions he was wrestling with. 

Tackling what he refers to as the “proverbial elephant in the room”, Johnnie writes openly and honestly about what many Christians know but shy away from confronting:  the hypocrisy which is sinking our churches and many people’s lives.

Johnnie talks about his experience of watching his parents struggle in their marriage, and discovering that the pastor who was counseling them was also having an affair with another pastor’s wife.   This one experience caused a monumental faith crisis for Johnnie and he wasn’t too sure he wanted to remain a Christian.  He shares candidly about his journey as a “recovering doubter” and what he has had to overcome in order to regain his faith.

This book reminds readers that Christians will have their ups and downs – we all fail, but we aren’t defined by our failures.  It’s what we do about them.

If you desire to be authentic in your walk with Christ, this book is a great read.
