For the whole year and a half I’ve been working on Too Good to be False, I’ve felt like I’ve been sitting on a secret — two of them, actually — secrets too great to hold inside. Now as the book nears its August 1 publication date, it’s time to start getting the word out on those secrets. I’ve even discovered there’s a third one, from those who’ve read pre-release copies of the book. Those three secrets: Jesus is better than you knew; he’s too good to be false; and (the one that surprised me) this message turned out to be a “fun read,” suitable for everyone from laypersons to the “professionals!”
