Phil Callaway’s book, To Be Perfectly Honest, comes with an irresistible hook. What would life be like if we always told the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help me God? Set in a diary format, Callaway embarked on a year of truthful living and survived to tell about it.
He relates the ups and downs of such a lifestyle in a fun and entertaining way. In so doing he addresses such problems as — When your wife asks if a particular outfit makes her look fat, is it a lie to say no? Or How do you respond when an old friends asks, “Hey, don’t you owe me ten bucks?” And, what do you tell the pastor when he asks if you liked the sermon?
An old adage says that honesty is the best policy, and in John 8:23 we’re told that “the truth will set you free.” No one knows this better than Phil Callaway. After all, he spent an entire year being Perfectly Honest. The book is a fun read…entertaining, yet thought-provoking. We highly recommend it.
