Are you putting your whole faith in God but still living as if everything is up to you?

You may believe in God, attend church, and generally treat people with kindness…but are you living as if God doesn't exist? Have you surrendered to God completely, living every day depending upon the Holy Spirit?

Pastor and bestselling author Craig Groeschel will lead you on a personal journey toward an authentic, God-honoring life. This honest, hard-hitting, and eye-opening look into the ways people believe in God but live as if he doesn't exist is a classic of discipleship training. Groeschel's personal journey will help you break down your own barriers between simple belief and a more intentional faith.

This book will help you:

  • Let go of the shame of your past and know that you’re forgiven.
  • Embrace Christ’s profound love for you.
  • Believe in the power of prayer.
  • Give up control when life doesn't seem fair.
  • Trust God with all your anxious thoughts, heartache, struggles, and pain.

From the author of Winning the War in Your MindThe Christian Atheist is a rallying cry to get honest with God, shed the self-sufficiency and the hypocrisy, and live a life that truly brings glory to Christ.

Top Highlights

“But even when you don’t see the results of your prayers around you, you may still sense God’s loving presence as you grow to know him. I’ve learned that any genuine communication to God may or may not change what God does, but your prayer will often change your heart or perspective. Prayer reminds you that you’re not in control and keeps you close to the one who is.” (source)

“That’s how God loves you. You are one of his children. He’s crazy about you. There is nothing you can do to make God love you more. And there is nothing you can do to make God love you less. Love is not something God does. It is who God is. And because of who he is, God loves you. Period.” (source)

“We believe in God, but our lives don’t reflect who he really is.” (source)

“However, in my corner of the world, Christian Atheism is a fast-spreading spiritual pandemic which can poison, sicken, and even kill eternally. Yet Christian Atheism is extremely difficult to recognize—especially by those who are infected.” (source)

“When our past pain becomes our present identity, the shame cycle has claimed yet another victim. Like a child who repeatedly picks at a scab, many hurt people live a life of unhealed pain.” (source)
