We've all had "aha!" moments in our lives, times when a sudden revelation surprises us with insight. According to pastor and best-selling author Kyle Idleman, we can experience this same kind of "aha!" in our spiritual lives. With everyday examples and trademark testimonies, Idleman draws on Scripture to reveal how three key elements can draw us closer to God and change our lives for good.
Awakening to the reality of our true spiritual condition, we see ourselves and our need for a Savior with renewed honesty. This realization leads to action, obeying God's commands and following the example set by Christ. As we see in the transformation of the prodigal son, the result is a life-changing, destiny-altering collision - an AHA moment that leads us home to our loving Father. We are all bundles of competing desires and half-true labels. We carry them around like scars; we carry them around like badges. They tell us we are no more than a job description, relationship status, or appearance. But the most important and truest identity of every Christian is that they are loved, accepted, and created in the image of God.
In The Truest Thing about You, Lomas addresses head-on the deepest questions of the soul: How can I know the truest thing about me? Not who I wish I was or who others say I am, but who am I really? He guides listeners to uncover and embrace the reality of how God sees them - and why it all matters.

Not for me
His theology - it seems rather off to think of some of what he was saying - he rather indicated that we are allowed to get to bad situations because we need to have a wake up call about something - but really, can't we hear from God without having a knock over the head? And is every bad situation a result of us not hearing God's warnings sooner? The main thread is based in the prodigal son, but he assumes that the older brother never had the aha moment that the prodigal son had - read Matthew Henry's commentary on the parable and you will see that the father WENT LOOKING for the older son just as he had been watching for the return of the prodigal - and he reassures the older brother that "everything he has is his" - and it is quite probable (since he was a loving faithful son) that the older brother also then too had an aha moment after being reassured of his father's love. Idleman seems to have it in for the older brother.
He read the book fine.
Frustration that it was not more accurate to theology. Some of it was - but some of it was off. And idleman misses his aha moment when the guy spills his coffee on his laptop - Idleman thinks the guy needs an aha moment to be more careful with his coffee - but I thought idleman needed an aha moment to see that if someone joins him for coffee, he should close his laptop an spend those minutes in the now visiting with a human face, instead of being online or working - after all, hadn't God created the moment of the two meeting up at the same place and time?
