Book Review - The Truest Thing About You


There are many true things about you—true things you use to build an identity. Parent. Introvert. Victim. Student. Extrovert. Entrepreneur.Single. 

These truths can identify you, your successes and failures, your expectations and  
disappointments, your secret dreams and hidden shames. But what if your true identity isn't found in any of these smaller truths, but in the grand truth of who God says you are? In other words, lots of things are true about you—but are they the truest?

David Lomas invites you to discover and live out the truth of who God created you to be: you are loved, you are accepted, and you are made in God's image. It's time to move beyond the lesser voices and discover why everything changes when you become who you really are.


David Lomas serves as the lead pastor at Reality in San Francisco, a church community that started in 2010 in the Castro District. He lives, with his wife Ashley, in one of the most unchurched cities in the nation, but one that is bursting with new life and grace of God. The Reality family of churches is a growing movement committed to relational church planting and serving the broader body of Christ.


This book was so thought provoking and really made me take a look at what I really believe about myself and where I get these ideas. We believe things about ourselves, and we think we know the truth about about ourselves, but these are not always the truest things.

I love that this book points us to the One who can tell us the truest thing about ourselves - God's Word. He knows what the truth is about us, tells us and our part is to know and accept the truest thing about ourselves. 

Mr. Lomas shows us how we can be our truest self in all areas of our life. In our work, in our family, and in all areas. He shows that God has the best for us in all areas of our life and that we only need to believe and accept all these things about us.

The chapters are short and easily read. I also like that I could really ponder what I read and apply it to my own life. The real key is to know who you are in Christ and this book gives you a road map of helping you to see that you are loved and accepted by God, which is the truest thing about us.
