One Man's Year of Almost Living Truthfully Could Change Your Life. No Lie.
What do you say when your friend asks about her new haircut which you think looks ridiculous? Find out how Phil handles this problem and more in his new book as he takes on the challenge to be honest for one whole year. He is a humorist which will make the year of honesty especially challenging.
He keeps a journal of how his life was impacted by the honesty challenge in which he chronicles his daily struggles with being honest and the many questions he faces about what honesty means.
The book contains discussion questions for each chapter which makes it insightful to use as a group study or book club selection. Notes are also included.
This book was enjoyable and enlightening to read. The situations and resulting stories of what happens when Phil is honest are funny and many of them had me laughing out loud. I read a few entries aloud to my husband and we laughed about them together.
Some of the concerns about what honesty really means, that he ponders in the journal entries made me think also. The main struggle I saw in the book was how to be honest but still interact in a polite and loving way with others. Do you choose honesty by not laughing over the desire to make someone feel better about the not so funny joke they have just told?
I received a free copy of this book from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group in order to write this review and have shared my honest opinion.
