  1. Lies We Believe about God

If you love The Shack by William Paul Young, you’re going to love his first non-fiction book. The one that spoke to me most is this: God loves me, but God doesn’t like me. It’s amazing just how many lies we believe about God. This is my favorite book of the year. I promise, you’ll love it, too. Get your copy today.And buy one for a friend!Just click here.
