Publisher's Summary

"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?"

    "theChristianatheist Hmmmmmm?"

    I totally enjoyed this book enough that I purchased the hard copy after the third chapter so that I could make notes to add to my resources material.
    The title alone brings to mind a double negative thought process and my case in point being as the book title lay on my office desk while listen a officer entered the room and while I finished a phone call he looked at the title studying it. Once off the phone he pointed at it and said that can't be right... You can't be both... Believing in God and be an atheist. This open the door to share the knowledge the book has brought me about how we can live our lives as if there is no God while saying we believe in Him....to which the officer said"Hmmmmmm".
    I think everyone who calls themselves a Christian should listen to or read or both this book.

    "So inspiring to live a true sacrificial life"

    This book was so clearly written. it is truly inspiring to live a honest and sacrificial life for God. It's a fast read and the second it's over you want to read it again. there areso many nuggets and amazing stories and examples especially the one where he forgives the abuser of his sister. It is a life-changing back

    "Good book, tough if you know Craig's voice."

    It's hard to listen to someone else reading his book if you know how Craig speaks, but it's still good content once you glaze past that disparity.

    "Makes You Think"

    Sure does give one a bunch to think about. I am inspired to really do a self inventory and see where I am at.

    "Very convicting"
    Any additional comments?

    Very convicting book. I'm reading "not a fan." by Kyle Idleman now as well and it's very much along the same lines. When are you ready to stop being a fan of Jesus and become a follower. I am ready to stop being a Christian Athiest. I do wish Groeschel would have narrated his own book but I got over it.

    "Awesome!"

    This is a great book. Really makes you stand back and take a look at where you are in your walk with God. Craig is very real...and plain spoken. So refreshing!

    "Excellent book!"

    A great book, especially for those like me who struggles to live a sincere and honest Christian life, but in certain way we might found ourselves taking basics and fundamental things for granted. This book will make you meditate on aspects in your life, highly recommended.

    "Great read- easy to listen to- challenging."

    One of the reviewers said that the reader was depressing to listen to- I didn't find that at all. I thought it was a great book. I enjoyed it. The author put himself in the 'christian atheist' column and gave many personal, challenging stories. I've never heard or read anything from Craig Groeschel, but I will be looking for more of his material after this. Check it out- you won't be disappointed.
