William Paul Young offers 26 statements that he feels are lies that we believe about God. Some of them are right on the money, and cut me to my very core. Some others I had a hard time with, and ultimately disagreed with the statement. But I kind of love this about reading. It sharpens your critical reading and thinking skills. If you (like me and many others) were moved by The Shack, this book is worth the read. Feel free to wrestle with the author. The forward even invites you to do so.

"Lies WE Believe About God" a short 300 page book that puts into logical terms the discussions and humanistic attributes we associate with God the Creator. The author examines our personal belief systems in which we all assign human attributes to God, and the author's belief that we aren't assigning the right attributes. The attributes we assign are judgmental, barbaress and racial. We forget that The Creator is forgiving, loving and non-descriptive. The author accesses Heaven as well. His vision for the afterlife is more personal and intimate with all of creation from the beginning of the Earth until it's perfection under the 1000 year reign of Christ. The book was heavy at times and took re-reading to gain the author's perspective on many issues described in the book. I liked this book, it wasn't preachy,
or cermony, it was a conversation, a intellectual discussion about assumptions taken as gospel and mis-understood by us all.

I would recommend this book!
