Temptation isn’t merely about winning or losing a battle.

It’s about discovering who you truly are.
And what matters most.

Book Cover

On a daily basis, we are all tempted to enjoy the gifts of this world while making the Giver optional or irrelevant in our quest for life. But what if, in God’s purposes, temptation is not merely an obstacle to overcome but an opportunity to flourish in faith?

Living in the truth exposes lies and turns moments of temptation into character-shaping opportunities, powerfully displaying our true identity as followers of Jesus.

What People Are Saying

Tim Chaddick has the ability to strip away the impenetrable exoskeleton of a thing and crack it wide open, exposing its beating and sometimes damaged heart. He writes with graceful accessibility but also careful urgency—a combination that is all at once refreshing and convicting.

Life comes down to moments. And not all moments are created equal. Some matter a lot more than the others. In those crucial, axispoint moments, the kind that set the trajectory for our future, how will we respond? Will we succeed or fail miserably? Will we keep our footing or fall on our faces? How do we navigate the moments of life with wisdom beyond our years and face the temptations of our hearts with courage and resolve? In The Truth about Lies, Tim leads us into a new place as he sets a new framework for how to live and how to live well. If you’re ready to take the journey, I can’t think of a better guide.

Tim is a leader we should pay attention to. This book is about the testing of a leader—something we all struggle with. Tim provides practical perspective and helpful application for the moments when our mettle is tested and our character revealed. You’ll gain crucial insight into the process of maturing as a follower of Jesus, the blocking and tackling of temptation and pushing through, the constant daily renewing of our minds and hearts. It’s messy, but meaningful. It’s raw, but refined. If you are a leader, read this book!
