To Be Perfectly Honest

Would I Lie to You? Not This Year. Veteran author and speaker Phil Callaway is no stranger to daunting challenges. He has been laughed at-repeatedly-by large crowds of people from Halifax to Hong Kong. He fathered three children in three years, spent much of last year on airplanes built by the lowest bidder, and flipped an out-of-control ATV, which doesn't mean he sold it for a profit. So who Phil Callaway to boldly accept a challenge that would make the average person run and hide? Phil promised to tell the truth for an entire year, and he wasn't joking. Twelve months later, his journal was crammed with successes, near-successes, and outright failures. During his year-long experiment with veracity, he made a disastrous financial investment, fielded hundreds of intrusive questions from friends and strangers, attended a thirty-year class reunion, and waded into possibly the most revealing-and hilarious-situations he has ever documented. Find out what happens when a follower of Jesus does his level best to always tell the truth. There is no doubt you'll be entertained. But don't be surprised if you are left with a question: how might your life be changed if you sold out to the truth-with no exceptions?

Reviews

Praise for To Be Perfectly Honest"This book is fabulous and funny. I couldn't read it all at once because my doctor doesn't want me to tear my stitches! These journal entries can help alter the way we view our speech and relationships, God's grace, and our own integrity. To be perfectly honest, I plan to plagiarize everything Phil has written here!" --Bryan Duncan, Grammy Award-winning musician"Reading Phil Callaway's writing is one of life's pure pleasures. His books are not just a pleasure to savor, like eating a perfectly ripe pear. They are full of firm insights that give grace for the daily race, especially when the journey is hard." --Ellen Vaughn, New York Times best-selling coauthor of It's All About Him and author of Time Peace"Phil Callaway may be known for his humor, but he takes on a serious topic in To Be Perfectly Honest He tries not to lie for one solid year. Thankfully, he takes us along on his 365-day journey with his sense of humor firmly intact. You'll enjoy this book--no lie." --Mark Joseph, Foxnews.com, author of The Lion, the Professor, and the Movies: Narnia's Journey to the Big Screen"Phil is what you'd get if you tampered with the genes of Garrison Keillor, Dave Barry, and my fourth-grade Sunday school teacher. Don't buy a copy of this book. Buy a few dozen."--Joel Freeman, author of God Is Not Fair, chaplain for the Washington BulletsPraise for Phil Callaway"I love Phil Callaway because he manages to accomplish what few writers can--masterfully blending laughter with learning." --Lee Strobel, best-selling author of The Case for Christ"Very few authors make me laugh out loud. Phil Callaway makes me roar. Maybe that's why I savor his books like a cup of hot chocolate. Sipping each story slowly, rolling it around my mouth to get the full flavor. Then spitting it all over the room in reaction to the hilarious truth."--Ken Davis, author and comedian"Reading Phil Callaway is like playing in holy sand. You're having so much fun you don't realize how much has gone into your shoes and is now sticking to your life." --Chris Fabry, author and host of Chris Fabry Live!"God speaks through the small and ordinary in extraordinary ways. Phil has listened and heard--and thankfully decided to share it with us."--Michael Card, author, teacher, and singer/songwriter "Phil Callaway is master of the funny bone and the heart tug. He pretends to be just a fellow traveler, but I'm not fooled: he knows the ground well, and I'd follow him anywhere." --Mark Buchanan, author of The Rest of God and Hidden in Plain Sight"Phil keeps us laughing so it doesn't hurt so much when we face the truth."--John Fischer, author of What on Earth Are We Doing?"Phil Callaway really enjoys life--life with his family and life with his Lord. He's the kind of contented, happy Christian I like to be around." --Luis Palau, author and evangelist "Very likely Phil Callaway has the best sense of humor in the Western hemisphere. Rollicking humor, subtle wit, charm, and style don't often coexist in one author's prose, but they surely do in the case of Phil Callaway." --Paul L. Maier, author of A Skeleton in God's Closet and Pontius Pilate Praise for "To Be Perfectly Honest" This book is fabulous and funny.
