Book Review-To Be Perfectly Honest
Mr. Callaway shares his year in this book, in 365 journal entries. Short little bursts of insight into his life and the challenge of always being truthful. Does he make it an entire year never telling a lie? No. Who would? The attempt to, the honesty and humor he uses, is heartwarming and engaging. Whether he's questioning the music choices at his church, or pretending to be deaf when Mormons come to his door, this book will make you chuckle, and reflect. To Be Perfectly Honest is a fast, fun, easy read, and it shows us just how tough (and funny) honesty can be.
This part of the epilogue is interesting, and reflects best what I, as a reader, got out of this book.
"And finally, after completing a year of truth-telling, I'm much more aware of my flaws and weaknesses. Tabulating one’s own sins causes the faults of others to fade in significance, so I'm learning the joy of scratching a little deeper beneath the surface of God's grace. What I've found is that there is a God who smiles, a God who still loves me. With his help, I've decided to extend the deadline on this truth vow another fifty years."
*I recieved this book from the publisher in exchange for a review, all opinions expressed are my own.
