Controversial book release in the midst of much controversy

James MacDonald just released his newest book, Authentic. The description of the books says;

“Has hypocrisy crept into your life? It doesn’t just happen overnight. Drifting into hypocrisy is a long, drawn-out journey away from God’s best for your life and toward a two-faced existence. How do you know when your inner self has deteriorated when you’ve become an expert at presenting a faithful-looking facade? Hold up the mirror of God’s word and take a good look. 

Acting like a Christian and saying all the right words sometimes leads to nothing more than empty piety. If you want to live that vibrant life, if you want to be truly blessed, you must get after the disciplines of genuine faith. Follow along with Pastor James MacDonald on the road toward Truth and explore the disciplines of personal Bible study, personal prayer, fasting, fellowship, and service for Christ.

 Become the real deal. Be authentic.”

I am surprised by this because of the controversial issues that are going on with MacDonald and Harvest. To me, it’s really surprising he would publish this book, even in the midst of many disturbing issues going on. I don’t really know what to say about it. It’s just sad.

I do hope to read this book in the future but I have a hard time paying money for it.
