In To Be Perfectly
Honest: One Man’s Year of (Almost) Living Truthfully Could Change Your Life. No
Lie., readers are in for plenty of insightful, laugh-out-loud humor. Phil
Callaway, best-selling author and popular conference speaker, begins by
recounting a fateful assignment from his editor: to be entirely truthful for a
year, and to record the entire experience.
But the result is not merely funny. As his journey into the
honesty dare unfolds, Callaway offers a humble, perceptive look at the
falsehoods in our hearts and in our churches. No ground is safe from
inspection—among other things, Callaway examines sermons, church members,
annual Christmas letters and how we read the Bible.
Though Callaway was reluctant to take the assignment—as a
humorist, “I lie for a living,” he says—readers will be glad that he did. His
delightful knack for mingling hard truths with sheer hilarity will appeal to a
wide range of readers, including those who appreciate year-of books such as
A.J. Jacobs’ The Year of Living Biblically.
