Hidden Agendas (Review)
This review is for the book "Hidden Agendas" by Steve Brown. Every so often - very rarely - I come across an author who makes me want to literally jump up and down for joy because he is so REAL. I mean, this entire book is about dropping the mask and how to stop being so phony, so if Brown didn't write in such a transparent way, he would be a total hypocrite. I totally "get" Steve Brown. When he said that he KNOWS it's all about God, but it's hard to remember the part that it's NOT all about me - I GOT THAT. When he said that we're afraid to drop the mask because we don't want others to reject us - YES, got it. When he talks about our self-righteousness, and how we feel like we need to know all the answers, and how we sometimes forget how forgiven and loved we are.
This book made me laugh, it made me nod my head in agreement, it made me grin, and it made me want to take my mask off a little bit more. I loved it. I think everyone should read this book. This book is going on my bookshelf, and that is rare. I can't wait to recommend it to everyone I know, and read more books by Steve Brown in the future.
Thank you to Litfuse Publicity for a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
