by Daniel Fusco, with contribution from D. R. Jacobsen
What people are saying about Daniel Fusco's Honestly:
"Raw and real. Those are the words I would use to describe Daniel Fusco's book Honestly. No matter what you're dealing with, Honestly shows how God wants to do new things in and through you. I so appreciate Daniel—his passion, joy, and commitment to the gospel. It's evident in this book."
Author of Unlikely
"Sometimes when I am fast-forwarding through a commercial break while watching a TV show that's recorded on my DVR, something catches my eye that makes me stop, rewind and actually watch an ad or a movie trailer. That is how I see this book by my friend Daniel Fusco: In a sea of regularly scheduled static, the words on these pages are disruptive and worth pausing for. He is willing to "go there," and you will be glad to let him take you—not to merely pay lip service to the great ache of our hearts or to put a band-aid on a bullet hole, but because acknowledging the elephant in the room that is our messiness allows Jesus to deal with it. This is a book that needed to be written, needs to be read, and must be allowed to read you—honestly."
Pastor of Fresh Life Church, Montana, and author of Through the Eyes of a Lion
"Daniel Fusco is a breath of fresh air in a stale room; he gives us what we all need to survive this side of resurrection—not trite, formulaic answers, but honesty. His raw, candid transparency is great, but mixed with his hopeful love of life, it's a beautiful read."

"Daniel Fusco is an incredible friend and an amazing pastor. Honestly is a great title for his book because it perfectly describes who Daniel is: He's the real deal. We live in a world that has been broken by sin. As a result, life gets messy—sometimes even downright nasty. Daniel does a great job helping Christians develop a theology that informs them Jesus is not only greater than the mess and nastiness that life can bring, but He can also use that mess to make you into a masterpiece. Every person who follows Jesus will be encouraged and challenged by reading Honestly."
Pastor of LifePoint Church in Smyrna, Tennessee, and author of The Sending Church
"Daniel Fusco takes dead aim on cliché Christianity, without creating any of the collateral damage of cynicism that so often accompanies our well-intentioned attempts to challenge an unexamined faith. Honestly is honest, humorous, and always challenging. I recommend it."
Author and pastor, North Coast Church, California
"Do you long to understand the trials and messiness in your life? If so, you'll want to read Honestly by Daniel Fusco. He gets real about messy lives by unpacking biblical truths to help our messy lives make sense, and how God can use our messes to bless others. This is a must read."
Lead pastor of Community Christian Church, Chicago, and lead visionary of NewThing
"I started my Christian walk in the midst of a terrible mess! I had just lost my father to a fatal illness. As a result we had lost the family business, and we were falling into serious poverty. It was one of the darkest times of my life, and I was only twelve years old. Yet Jesus' resurrection power was so real to me and my family in the middle of it all. Having experienced God's transforming power in the midst of those hard times, I can say 'Yes and Amen' to Daniel Fusco's wonderful new book Honestly."
World evangelist, author of Out of the Desert
"I love how real and authentic Daniel is. His heart is so open and his way of communicating is totally disarming, all the while addressing profound and necessary spiritual truths and encouraging you to dive deeper and deeper into Jesus."
