“This is probably the best book I have ever read on really knowing the heart of God. To really know the heart of God you have to really know what love is and is not since God is love. That is the primary focus of this text – bringing the reader a clear understanding of love in its purest form. Author Darrin Hufford shows a deep understanding of what love is, and what it means to be loved as well as to have love for one another. You may not agree with everything in the book but it is still a life-changing read that brings a depth of understanding unmatched by any other book I have read. It will challenge you, it will break down barriers, and it will build up love – for yourself and for others. Persevere through the parts that you might find difficult. You will find that you are glad you did. The God’s Honest Truth is a very highly recommended read for all audiences and a book not to be missed.”

“This is one of the most relevant and most powerful Christian books I have read for ‘spiritual’ seekers. Look for Hufford to be compared to Rick Warren and Joel Osteen. The God’s Honest Truth, in my opinion, is one of GOD’s best sellers.”

Hoover Reviews

“‘The God’s Honest Truth’ is a great book. Hufford’s book is filled with similar true-to-life examples and the corrective truth the Bible offers. The most important thing we can realize and understand is that God loves us purely. By studying what love truly is (in 1 Cor. 13, for example), we can sincerely and simply love God more and more.”

Midwest Book Review

God’s Honest Truth will redefine your view of God. As the author states, your heart will be “shaken and stirred“ by this truth.

This is not a run of the mill religion book. As an example, Hufford asks an audience “how many of them had been basically miserable for the largest part of their Christian lives?“ He identifies “expert prayers” and punctures your previous thinking about love and selfishness. He explains that selfishness is the cause of all the dreadful happenings on earth.

God’s Honest Truth is written in a flowing straightforward style that will nag at you to finish every last sentence. At the end the reader will understand “consulting the flame“ which is done by understanding what the “flame“ is and how it can change the way you live your life.

“‘The God’s Honest Truth’ gives back life to those who lost it many years into their Christian walk. Darin Hufford shows the reader the true face and heart of God. He reintroduces us to a Father who loves us and in return we want to love. When you read this book, you will never be the same. Truth brings freedom and freedom brings relationship with the Father.”

“There is not a more insightful and heart-moving book on the love of God than The God’s Honest Truth. This book has influenced the way I look at God, people, and ministry all together.”

“Darin Hufford’s theology is both revolutionary and profound. His understanding and portrayal of God’s heart not only reaffirmed my beliefs about what love truly should be but forced me to eliminate all the misconceptions I had locked away. I strongly recommend reading this book as it will truly guide you towards having an honest and intimate relationship with the Lord.”

“This book has drastically rebuilt real Christianity back into my life. I have been so confused over the years as to what is right and what is just a load of hype and manipulation. The God’s Honest Truth cuts through all that and explains the Heart of God in a way transcends denominational boundaries and religious walls. Our entire Church plans on studying it together this fall.”

“I encourage all to read this book. No matter how long you have been a Christian or how deep you feel you are in the ministry….this book will leave you knowing God in an intimate way you never thought possible.”

“After reading The God’s Honest Truth, I became more convinced that Christianity needs believers that are willing to study and learn the scriptures. Reading it in a group or individually, Hufford’s writing will provide insight into the depth of God’s love. It is a must read.”
