Although Christians are quite adept at masking their pain behind smiles and handshakes, we experience pain and suffering in proportions equal to the non-Christian world. Dr. O. Sonny Acho has written If You Only Knew to awaken church leaders and the church in general to the pain of those in the pews. He challenges preachers to go beyond preaching, and parishioners to be more involved in the day-to-day struggles of those within the body. By informing leaders, Dr. Acho believes they will better train their flock to get into each other's lives, relieve pain, and help each other live more like Christ.
O. SONNY ACHO (Ph.D., University of Texas) is the Senior Pastor of Living Hope Bible Fellowship Church located in North Dallas and is founder and president of Living Hope Christian Ministries. In addition to his ministerial service within the local church, Dr. Acho maintains a private practice in Dallas. He is author of If You Only Knew: Unmasking the Hidden Pain in Your Church and Picking Up the Pieces: Finding Inner Peace When Your World Falls Apart. He and his wife, Christie, are the parents of four children and reside in Dallas.
