“The more I looked, the more I found Christian Atheists everywhere.” Former Christian Atheist Craig Groeschel knows his subject all too well. After over a decade of successful ministry, he had to make a painful self admission: although he believed in God, he was leading his church like God didn’t exist. To Christians and non-Christians alike, to the churched and the unchurched, the journey leading up to Groeschel’s admission and the journey that follows―from his family and his upbringing to the lackluster and even diametrically opposed expressions of faith he encountered―will look and sound like the story of their own lives. Now the founding and senior pastor of the multicampus, pace-setting LifeChurch.tv, Groeschel's personal journey toward a more authentic God-honoring life is more relevant than ever. Christians and Christian Atheists everywhere will be nodding their heads as they are challenged to take their own honest moment and ask the question: am I putting my whole faith in God but still living as if everything was up to me?

Review:

“The Christian Atheist will challenge you, push you, and disturb you. It will redefine our sense of purpose and focus as Christians. Every Christian today needs to read this book. Craig’s gut-level honesty is refreshing and will help move you towards a life that is fully devoted to Christ. Too many of us live lives that don’t truly reflect who we are as followers of Christ. But the good news is we can change. True Christianity awaits us. And Craig provides a practical prescription on how to get there.” -- Brad Lomenick

“The thing I’ve always appreciated about Craig is his willingness to be honest when his life doesn’t match up with the Scriptures. Too many people are quick to make excuses for themselves and others who call themselves ‘Christian.’ Craig challenges us to think deeply, honestly, and fearfully about how our lives may be contradicting our message.” -- Francis Chan

“Church people always talk about ‘Christians’ and ‘non-Christians,’ but nobody ever talks about the people in-between. Most of the men and women I talk to every day fall into that middle ground, the group that believes in God but lives like he’s not there, doesn’t care, or doesn’t matter. In The Christian Atheist, Pastor Craig Groeschel hits this audience head-on, opening up about his own doubts and fears, while setting the table for hundreds of life-changing discussions about who God is and how he operates.” -- Dave Ramsey

“Craig Groeschel is a brilliant communicator and a gift to the church worldwide. He has a way of saying the things we are all thinking with an approachable authority that resonates with the ups and downs of our daily walk with God. Craig’s genuine heart to see your life’s journey flourish, and his honest perspective on personal experiences, will quietly convict your heart and encourage your soul.” -- Brian Houston

“There are too many Christian atheists in the church today, and through this book, Craig challenges the genuineness of faith in the life of the self-proclaimed ‘believer.’ The Christian Atheist will cause you to move from head knowledge to heart knowledge. This is a must-read for every Christian.” -- Pastor Jentezen Franklin

“In The Christian Atheist, Craig leverages transparency to force the rest of us to take an honest look at the contrast between how we live and what we claim to believe. Craig’s vulnerability, coupled with his fresh insights, will move you to begin realigning behavior with beliefs.” -- Andy Stanley
