Are you tired of trying to be someone you’re not? Being Real > Being Perfect is an inspiring rallying cry for Christians to let go of pretending and instead enjoy a freeing, authentic relationship with Jesus and others.

Many of us spend a lot of energy—especially at church—trying to hide the fact that we’re struggling. We can’t share our marriage problems. Our addiction. Our sense of distance from God.

In Being Real > Being Perfect, Justin Davis reminds us that God can’t heal what we don’t admit is broken. As he vulnerably shares his own story of redemption, Justin helps us understand:

  • Why being real with ourselves, God, and others leads to peace and hope
  • How faking perfection robs us of the transformative power of grace
  • What the Bible says about insecurity and identity
  • Step-by-step ways to overcome our fear of being vulnerable

If you’re tired of trying to prove yourself, if you’re tired of wondering where the real “you” went, if you’re tired of knowing information but not experiencing transformation—discover the vibrant spiritual life you long for as you embrace the truth that being real is greater than you can imagine.

“Ten out of ten times I will support a book about being real over being perfect, if the author is someone I know to live this message themselves. Justin Davis has done the work to earn the right to lead us in this important message of freedom and fulfillment found only in the truth of Christ. It’s books like these that bring needed transparency and, as a result, healing to the Church.”
