The Misunderstood God Book Review & Giveaway
THE MISUNDERSTOOD GOD tells the truth about who the Creator is. This book analyzes what religion says about God's heart and personality and measures it up to what God calls Himself: Love. It simplifies a generation's tangled perceptions of God by taking a journey through the sixteen aspects of love described in one of the most well-known Bible passages in the world: 1 Corinthians 13, also known as "the love chapter." So many Christians have been bombarded with confusing teachings and doctrines that their understanding of God resembles a tightly tangled ball of Christmas tree lights.
About The Author:
Darin Hufford is the host of the Into the Wild podcast and the founder and president of the Free Believers Network. He travels and speaks throughout the world on knowing the heart of God. Currently, Darin lives in Phoenix, Arizona, with his wife, Angie, and their five children.
The Misunderstood God is an honest and, at times, harsh look at how many Christians today have been disillusioned by many of the teachings of "the traditional church".
I did agree with most of what Hufford states in his book, particularly that we need to love as God loves and that relationships should be more important than anything. I love that he helps the reader to remember God is Love...especially when he says to look at 1 Corinthians 13 and substitute "God" for "Love". For example, God is patient, God does not boast, God does not envy, etc.
I felt the book was easy to read and actually I learned alot about the love of God and how easy it is to be brought down by many of the "doom and gloom" Christians that are out there.
I do believe this would be a great book for those Christians who are feeling disillusioned by "the church" today and need encouragement for their Christian walk! Especially with Christmas coming, I highly recommend this book as a great gift idea!
