Publishers Description Be real with GodTake off your designer, postmodern phoniness. Strip off your pretty-sounding words. Get your faith naked. Honest and gritty, Eric Sandras encourages a generation of believers to drop the layers of make-believe nonsense that stunts our spiritual growth. What emerges is a positive alternative to life-crushing counterfeit faiths many of us are trying our best to work through. To do this, there's no secret handshake or magic formula, but there is vision and encouragement to take the risk and get dangerously real with God. He exposes the naked truth: We need to dress our lives with a real friendship with God and nothing else.

Thanks Apr 9, 2008
Knowing Eric personally, I have enjoyed his love for Jesus and how that shows in his way of life. His book was a treasure to read and now has its place in my library for a future re-read. The Christian community needs more books like this one. Just Jeremy, Author of "Just Loving Them".
Buck Naked Faith Jan 29, 2008
I was very excited about this book, and it lived up to its expectations. Buck Naked Faith forced me to look inward and see that I had been doing things that were hindering me from real faith. I had gotten too comfortable in my enviroment. If your open to it this book can open you eyes and leave you feeling exposed, which is a fantastic feeling. The growth points were fantastic and really made me be completely honest with myself.This books helps you to see that its okay to be Naked.
Great title. Better book. Apr 2, 2007
An honest and refreshing look at what so many of us fall prey to: masking our true selves to appear as if we have this "Christian" thing down.
Author Sandras compares those of us who are unwilling to get real with God and others to a Bonsai tree--on the outside, beautiful in a raw, having-weathered-the-storm way; on the inside, fragile and susceptible to the elements. He then gives the reader seven thought-provoking steps to a "butt-kicking, life-giving friendship with Jesus". Now for the hard, but best part--putting those steps into practice. A great tool!
Title better than the book Sep 19, 2005
I thought, from other reviews, I was getting a fresh perspective on the workings of Christian faith. What I got was another "You must..." "You should..." "You haven't been" preachy look at evangelical faith. I was disappointed.
a great read Sep 9, 2005
I would especially recommend this book to all young Christians (meaning haven't been Christian for that long) and all teenagers and college students struggling with how to make their lives fit in a world that demands many things while Christianity demands one thing. This book helps put everything in perspective.
