Reviews - What do customers think about Telling Yourself The Truth?

Telling Yourself the truth  Nov 10, 2006
This is a great book for anyone who wants to improve their EQ
Not Against Christian Principles  Mar 15, 2006
"Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?" 2 Cor 13:5
I found this book to be a practical tool to carry forth the command to examine myself. Self-deception is an easy thing; we justify and excuse our behavior because we haven't taken the time to really evaluate our thoughts. ALL people have emotions, Christians included, and many Christians struggle with guilt and shame over unchristlike feelings. But God has given us the tools to "come let us reason together" and that is what this book teaches. Christians do not have a magic wand swept over them, they are just humble students willing to take God's lead, willing to "die daily" to self. If you don't know the real you, that you are a sinner, you will not recognize the enemy and will be defeated time and time again. This book helps you to take your thoughts and feelings and reason them out through the eyes of the Lord. It is a step by step tool to victory. Not only have I learned how to "put on Christ" in a very practical way, but I have been able to help others, with these tools, to abide in Christ and have victory rather than guilt and shame.
This book is for God's glory!
A book everyone should read.  Sep 24, 2005
The step by step information in this book changed my life. Even as a faithful Christian and successful business owner, I had a significant problem with anger. My wife, family and friends and have seen a dramatic change. This powerful book addresses the negative self talk that almost all people have. More importantly it gives biblical instruction on how to stop it and the destruction that it causes.
therapeutic  Jan 31, 2005
Great book! One of the better 'self-help' books I have read. Anyone who battles negative thinking and insecurity needs to read this book.
Life Changing  May 19, 2004
Wow! I am blown away by this book. I received this book as a gift and had never heard of either author before. I could identify with so much of what the author's shared and was able for the first time, to recognize a lot of misbeliefs in my life. Some of them I knew about, but a lot of them, I didn't.

This book is biblically based and Christ centered. It doesn't promise easy answers or a quick fix. The suggestions made by the authors to overcome misbeliefs are helpful, practical and easy to apply.

This book has a life changing message. This is a book that definitely needs to be read more than once. I thank God so much for this book.
