Summary

In Live No Lies, John Mark Comer offers spiritual practices and advice for finding happiness and peace by recognising and resisting evil in the world, the flesh and the devil.

With warmth and encouragement Pastor John Mark Comer, author of ECPA best seller The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry, offers guidance and advice to help you recognise the lies and resist the forces that seek to steal your happiness, wholeness and holiness.

As Christians, we’re all at war with three fierce adversaries of the soul that feed us deceptive ideas to harm our spiritual well-being: the world, the flesh and the devil. Live No Lies parses out the tactics, strengths and weaknesses of these enemies, giving you a clear battle plan and spiritual practices to outwit and overcome these evils.

Skilfully weaving together uplifting wisdom and reassuring, practical guidance, this is a book for anyone looking for everyday disciplines to help them care for their soul. Live No Lies will equip you with all you need to make practices for resisting evil an active part of your spiritual formation and leave you motivated to find happiness and peace in Jesus.

The tug-of-war in your chest for wholeness? Those lies that sabotage your peace? It's time to identify them, and defeat them.

About the author: John Mark Comer lives, works and writes in the urban core of Portland, Oregon, with his wife, Tammy, and their three children: Jude, Moses and Sunday. He is the pastor for teaching and vision at Bridgetown Church and has a master’s degree in biblical and theological studies from Western Seminary.

Beautiful and needful

This book really does get us back to the cleansing Truth/The Gospel, which is the only way to cancel the lies the enemy tries to use to ‘steal kill and destroy’ our souls/faith/peace…etc. Calling us up to an uncompromising, but humble, higher way of living.

I love how he expands on the concept of our motives for going to heaven or what it, or hell, would be like in light of our inclinations; an idea I first came across in CS Lewis saying that it’s safe to say that only the pure in heart will see God but only the pure in heart want to (I think ‘Mere Christianity’). Comer’s further insight into the formation of our eternal character/being, and how it guides our trajectory through to eternity, really impacted me.

I need to go over this again because there are so many amazing, and at times challenging, truths I want to have deeply embedded.

So grateful to get to learn this. I wish so many more could read this; it is so freeing!

A mandate for the church in the 21st Century

Excellent book. JMC illuminates what is going on around us and within us and highlighting how we, the universal Church, can be unobservant or even complicit with the Devil's lies and schemes. He makes it clear: we choose for God and living his Kingdom, or we choose against God.

Enjoyable an useful

Lots of sound advice in this book. nothing particularly groundbreaking or radical; just tried and tested wisdom. Worth listening to.. particularly in the run up to or during lent... if you need to change something and refocus/reorient your life back towards Christ.

What a great read !!!

This book is so needed for the times we are currently living in , with all the deconstructing of our Christian faith , this is what we need to challenge our thinking and help reconstruct our faith , hope and trust in the way of following Jesus . I loved the writing style and humility of John Mark . One of my standouts was “it’s not about doctrine , it’s about spiritual formation “ , this is a book I will pass on to my children and I hope my one day my grandchildren. Thank you John Mark Comer !!!

A great book relevant for today and tomorrow

John Mark Comer as always gathers both experience and knowledge from other sources to provide an excellent book. It always feels like he's putting into words things that I haven't thought about yet and then offers practical reflections and incites that really help with spiritual growth.
