Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
Many Christians feel broken and angry but don't think they can express these real feelings around others-or to God. So we put on a mask to hide our identity. Feelings of embarrassment and shame make us hide from the One who truly loves us. Author Brennan Manning encourages you to let go of this stressful, unreal impostor lifestyle and freely accept your identity as a child of God. Find the rest that you long for as you grow in character and accept His lordship. Includes discussion questions.
Come out of hiding -- The impostor -- The beloved -- Abba's child -- The Pharisee and the child -- Present risenness -- The recovery of passion -- Fortitude and fantasy -- The rabbi's heartbeat.
