Product Description

Make your life count. Quit faking. Express the real you. Live free from regrets. Find friends who are like family. Stop fearing the opinion of others. Be happy. Laugh often.

What's the secret to a life like that? Our culture says that it's this: be true to yourself. And that's right. Sort of.

This book shows you how to be true to the real you. It invites you to listen to the voice of your Creator to discover who you are and how to be happy. And it reveals Jesus' counterintuitive but altogether more satisfying vision of a life well lived.

Publisher's Description

Our culture tells us that the way to be happy is to "be true to yourself". It’s posted on social media, promoted in adverts, taught in schools and, even, expressed in churches. But what does that mean, and does it actually work?

Matt Fuller explores how true happiness, wholeness and freedom can be found not by turning inwards and listening to our fluctuating feelings, but by listening to our creator and allowing ourselves to be shaped by who the Bible says we are. In the process, this book draws on a broad range of fascinating research and examples to give us a fresh biblical take on some of today's biggest hot-button issues.

By cutting through the confusion and showing us what the Bible says, this is a book to help every Christian live with confidence in today's culture.

Editorial Reviews

For many today, the often-unspoken purpose of life is to discover who you are and express that to the world. Matt Fuller explains the meaning of the popular slogan “Be true to yourself” within the larger framework of God’s word and its view of our world. This book is helpful, relevant and full of thought-provoking cultural analysis.
Matt Fuller is a deft theologian who has his finger on the pulse of the culture. His cultural intelligence, his deep knowledge of the Scriptures, his logical train of argument and his winsome prose have together produced a gracious and engaging answer to the fleeting orthodoxies of the day. will prove to be a go-to help for all who strive to communicate the gospel—and a lifeline to those adrift amid the evanescent logics of the twenty-first century.
Absolutely brilliant! I loved reading : it’s biblically rich, emotionally intelligent, culturally perceptive and beautifully written. Matt addresses many of the most powerful current challenges to biblical Christianity, including those around sexuality and gender, with deep compassion and impressive clarity.
Matt Fuller’s book is a wonderful reminder of what matters most—the glory of God (not the glory of me)—and an invitation to look at Jesus, where we find our greatest joy. With clarity and depth of insight, Matt points us to the bigger truths of Scripture that need to capture our hearts. I loved it!
This book offers a beautiful and hope-filled biblical response to the unbearable pressures our culture has placed upon us. Packed full of insight and loaded with illustrations and commentary on our culture, it helps us understand both where we have been led astray and then how the gospel fully answers our quest for significance and meaning. A must-read for all in the church if we want to understand ourselves and our world better.
Matt manages to speak honestly about everyday life, to engage genuinely with modern culture and to inspire powerfully with God’s view of who we really are. Read this book and grow into the person you were always meant to be.
This is such a liberating book. It doesn’t settle for a small definition of who we are. This pushes us to a deeper understanding of who we truly are made to be. I hope it helps many to find the freedom God has in store for us.
Matt Fuller has the ability to tap into our culture and our hearts, and then let the word of God and the grace of God expose, reorient, guide and comfort us with tremendously helpful insights. But you know a book is good when you want to side with Jesus because you’re persuaded again that his way is the best way.
Every teenager and twentysomething is looking for their identity. Our selfie-obsessed culture tells us that to find it, we need to look within, follow our hearts and be true to ourselves. But Matt Fuller offers a better way... because he offers Jesus’ way: deny yourself and follow Christ. This is a book for the times and a book my generation desperately needs as they navigate our culture. I’m so grateful for Be True to Yourself!
I’m grateful for Matt Fuller’s timely new book. It is a strong antidote to a mindset—once a cultural vice, now a heroic virtue—that fires our imaginations and ruins our lives. On page after page, Matt unveils a counterintuitive secret: following your heart will enslave you, but following Jesus will free you.
This brief book by Matt Fuller is a helpful guide through the maze of messages we all receive in our modern age. It’s deep yet approachable, and kept me turning the pages for the solutions offered in the gospel. I recommend this for anyone looking to understand themselves more truthfully.
Matt Fuller angles the reader’s gaze away from introspection and toward our loving heavenly Father. This is a timely, smart, practical and important book that helps followers of Jesus focus primarily on Christ’s supremacy and the weight of the gospel.
Matt Fuller’s use of story makes him an engaging writer, and his pastoral experience and compassion are evident on every page. This book will help the reader to better understand the different voices being fed to us in our culture, and to gain a deeper love and trust for God’s freeing voice instead.
A sparkling and thoroughly biblical response to the siren voices that tell us to be true to ourselves. Each chapter provides profound gospel insights into our deepest longings for authenticity and acceptance. This warm and often humorous book blends a liberating biblical anthropology with culturally rich insights into our quest for identity. It deserves to be widely circulated.
This pithy and culturally incisive book is a must-read for Christians of all ages. Matt Fuller’s theological, biblical and pastoral insights offer a life-giving alternative to a culture that is over-promising and under-delivering.
An extraordinarily important book! Matt so helpfully tackles many of the lies of our current society and shines the truth of God’s word in a compelling, concise and captivating way. A must-read for people in our church today.
