The Lies We Believe about God: Knowing God for Who He Really Is
Without even realizing it, many people believe lies about God, such as:

“God’s love must be earned.”
“God has lost control of everything.”
“God gives us everything we want in life.”

In The Lies We Believe about God, psychologist Chris Thurman explores the influences that affect everyone’s view of God, the cost of not knowing God for who He really is, and how knowing God more intimately can bring greater meaning and joy to life.

This engaging, biblically rooted book calls readers to see the truth of who God is—truth that can set them free to enjoy a deeper relationship with Him.
