“The more I looked, the more I found Christian Atheists everywhere.” Former Christian Atheist Craig Groeschel knows his subject all too well. After over a decade of successful ministry, he had to make a painful self admission: although he believed in God, he was leading his church like God didn’t exist. To Christians and non-Christians alike, to the churched and the unchurched, the journey leading up to Groeschel’s admission and the journey that follows—from his family and his upbringing to the lackluster and even diametrically opposed expressions of faith he encountered—will look and sound like the story of their own lives. Now the founding and senior pastor of the multicampus, pace-setting LiveChurch.tv, Groeschel personal journey toward a more authentic God-honoring life is more relevant than ever. Christians and Christian Atheists everywhere will be nodding their heads as they are challenged to take their own honest moment and ask the question: am I putting my whole faith in God but still living as if everything was up to me?

Simple Read. Powerful Message.
When I told my mother-in-law what the title of this book was that I was reading, she seemed puzzled. Why? Because, as she said it, "the title seems like an oxymoron." She is right, and I think that is what Groeschel intended. It is a piece about people who claim Christianity yet lead a life that is opposite of that claim. In my opinion, one of the best thing I take from this book is it reads like a conversation -- one characterized by authenticity and transparency. Groeschel makes no qualms about the fact he has struggled and continues to do so at time with each of the issues presented in the various chapters. Until those who claim Christianity make it a point to live a live completely devoted to Christ -- and be willing to make the hard sacrifices -- we will continue to have a relationship with God that is more like an atheist than a true, born-again Christian.
Please read this book!
I lack the words to express how amazing this book is. If you want to connect better with God read this book!!!! I pray you read it.
This book will challenge your walk with The Lord like no other. Talk about a wake up call to start walking day in and day out with Jesus. I truly enjoyed this book and had to purposely put it down to think and chew over Groschel's dialogue. It's worth the money, buy it today and I hope it makes you reflect as much as it did for me.
