I read this book via an Amazon KINDLE Unlimited download.

In regards to authenticity I’m not one who goes to services on an on-going regular basis. I believe in having one God and try to the best of my ability to live a proper and authentic lifestyle.

When one goes to services, one expects everyone there would be on the same pages in regards to each other, yet the atmosphere I feel that is being created there is one of DO AS I SAY NOT AS I DO. Too many individuals might speak the word of the Lord, however their actions are too often in my opinion contrary to what they’re saying.

In other words, ACTION SPEAKS LOUDER THAN WORDS. Someone might tell someone else they love them continuously, but until such time this love manifests itself in some concrete form [action] it is meaningless. The best example of the God’s love for those who believe in Him, is not in His words, but what is found in John 3:16 [ESV]

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son,…

The author in his description for this book, writes that as a follower of Jesus, you value honest and transparent relationships with others. Yet you continue to discover that these characteristics seem to be rare within Christian churches. It doesn’t help the matter that a culture of detached professionalism pervades, not only in the contemporary; workforce, but within these same Christian communities.

I believe this entire concept of being honest/truthful can be found if one reads Proverbs 12 [version is unimportant].
How often have you heard the phrase “be true to yourself?” The reason I’m mentioning this is the author’s apparent mantra as he continuously uses it as an example of his own authenticity. Well, first, the actual phrase is “to thine own self be true?” and it’s NOT biblical. The phrase is what Polonius tells his son Laertes in Hamlet, Act I, Scene 3, in Lines 78-82.

For giving his readers, an eye-opening perspective reading experience regarding what authentic Christianity is and what it takes to become an authentic Christian, which is enhanced by the reading and discussion guide that is included at the end of each chapter; this reviewer of Christian book is delighted to give the author, Peter Watts, 5 STARS for his endeavor here.
