Let’s face it — most of us are looking for answers in all the wrong places. It’s hard not to be drawn in by headlines, advertisements, and the constant barrage of “expert” advice on everything from sex and relationships to fitness, fashion, and spiritual awakening.
In our world today, though, sin is presented a lot more effectively than virtue. We are led to believe that the only way to improve ourselves and satisfy our deepest longings is through the prevailing perspective of our culture. But that perspective is a schizophrenic one, divorced from the source of truth.
Kaiser Johnson — actor, athlete, and author — had the same burning questions we all have about life, love, sex, being a man, and doing the right thing. The more he searched, the more he realized the world’s answers just weren’t working. From his years spent listening to the lies of our culture, he has clearly identified 12 simple tricks to end up miserable and alone. He’s tried all of them, and they work! It turns out hookup culture, self-fulfillment, self-love, using and abusing friends and family, maintaining a frantically busy schedule, and always taking the easy way out are the perfect recipe for a wretched life.
But Kaiser also discovered something else that he shares in the pages of this funny, honest book: Only God can fill the emptiness of our hearts and help us to discover a life that truly matters.
