Reviews - What do customers think about From Faking It to Finding Grace: Discovering God Again When Your Faith Runs Dry?
What a relevant and real book Aug 25, 2006
I actually picked this book up at a trade show, hoping to make the time go by while I waited for an interview. I was drawn in from the first paragraph. Before long I had read the first few chapters.
This book shares Connie Cavanaugh's personal story of trying to fake her feelings during the dry times in her faith, only to discover that grace meant she didn't have to pretend. God's not afraid of honesty. Maybe others are. Maybe we are afraid to be real with ourselves, but finding grace means that we drop the facade and let God walk with us during the good and difficult seasons.
Very honest, helpful, and relevant resource.

Everyone, at different times during their lives, will most likely experience a feeling of separation from God. But author Connie Cavanaugh believes that if we walk away from God, we'll never find the joy and peace we could have if we are honest with ourselves and listen to Him. Cavanaugh insists that if we do this, we will lose the wilderness wanderer that we've become and be filled with faith and God's grace.
Through personal stories (that we will all be able to relate to); an examination of the patterns that emerge in wanderers (people whose faith wavers); and the different ways we can reignite our faith, we learn that the journey back to God is often one where we 'fake it' until we make our way home.
Cavanaugh's discussion of surrender is an important wake-up call. Breaking the conspiracy of silence and taking off our masks is also a simple and logical way of making our way back to God.
There is only one me and one you and we are each unique beings that are loved unconditionally by God. How's that for a comforting thought that offers security for eternity. We need to move on with trust; trust in a God who will never forsake us.
Cavanaugh's book is a wonderful read for those who are experiencing the wasteland of doubt. Read it with an open heart and open mind and allow God to work his wonders with and through you.
