Uncovered – Book Review
Are you a Christian? If so, today’s book is written specifically for you! Uncovered – The Truth About Honesty and Community by Rod Tucker is a pastor’s call for those who call themselves Christ-followers to lead more honest, grace-filled lives.
The book is divided into three parts:
- Part One examines how we need to cultivate honesty in our own lives.
- Part Two explores how we as a church need to cultivate honesty in community.
- Part Three discusses how we are to live meaningful lives in the world.
Sound simple? Don’t let the short chapters and the homespun stories fool you.
If you let the message contained within Uncovered penetrate your heart, you’ll discover some profound truths that have the power to deeply transform your life.
Honesty goes deeper than truth-telling. Honesty involves authenticity in every area of our lives.
Honesty helps create safe havens within our churches.
Honesty invites freedom, connection and reconciliation in every aspect of our lives.
God is in the process of bringing the world back to Himself. We all have significant longing and motivation inside of us to bring all of who God is into the broken places of this world. We want to be part of what He is doing. This is because God made us and He loves us.
In Uncovered, Rod challenges us to “walk in the light” (1 John 17) – and helps us shine light on areas of our lives that still remain in darkness.
Uncovered raises a lot of thought-provoking questions, such as:
Have you ever become so wrapped up in doing ministry, that you became blind to the people you were ministering to?
Uncovered also makes a lot astute observations, such as:
People don’t want our peanut butter sandwiches. People want our lives.
I really enjoyed Uncovered and I highly recommend it to you. Based on the other reviews I have read, I think it has the potential to provoke interesting discussions should you decide to read this book in a group setting. Rod provides a few questions at the end of each chapter for Individual Reflection or Group Discussion.
I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars.
