“… Knocks the ball out of the park … a must read …”
— Elizabeth Stalcup, Ph.D., Executive Director of Healing Center International

“This book and study should be a must for anyone who is serious about Christian discipleship.”
— The Rev. Canon Andrew Miller, LCSW, Founder of HeartSync Ministries

“I’ve been waiting for someone to approach spiritual formation, recovery and inner healing in an integrated way. This is it! In doing so, David Takle has described how interactive life with God grows and results in transformation into Christlikeness.”
— Jan Johnson, retreat speaker and author of Invitation to the Jesus Life

The truth will set you free? Then why am I still carrying around all this pain? Why am I still stuck in my walk with the Lord? What is wrong with me, and why does the Christian life seem so illusive?

Difficult as these questions can be, many Christians today find themselves in the position where their journey toward an authentic life with God has slowed down to a crawl or stopped altogether, with no bridge and no way forward in sight. Tragically, the very ideals many Christians depend on for spiritual growth are actually their greatest source of bondage! Deeply tied to this problem of stagnation is a pervasive misunderstanding and mishandling of Truth that has distorted an undermined Christian practice throughout the history of the Church.

The Truth About Lies and Lies About Truth describes the foundations you need for renewing your mind and building a relationship with your heavenly Mentor that will transform your life. Some of the topics covered are:

  • Why Christian Education fails to produce adequate change
  • When being more committed will not help
  • How the misuse of truth can create bondage instead of freedom
  • How most discipleship models actually make life harder

1 review for The Truth About Lies — Revised Edition

  1. David


    Here is Elizabeth Stalcup’s full endorsement:
    “David Takle knocks the ball out of the park with this insightful book about the insidious power of lies – not the kind of lies that we all recognize as false but the deeply held internal assumptions about how life works and who we are that seem true, yet have malformed our soul. No one escapes.
    These often hidden lies have warped our souls making it hard to believe that we are truly beloved children of a good God. The nagging sense that we will fail, that we are not good enough, that we will never have the love we long for are all rooted in these kinds of lies. David not only succinctly describes the problem but he provides the solution, experientially engaging with God so we can receive his forgiveness, let go of self recrimination, and let him restore our whole heart.
    This book is a must read for all who seek to grow in intimacy with God. If you apply the wisdom within, it will change your life.”
