About the Book

Written in a 'coffee talk' format, this is a VERY helpful book for both the seeker and Bible student. Pastor Greg writes in a style as if he's sitting across from you, talking one to one, fielding your questions about Jesus, as well as, controversial topics. A must-read, aid for everyone’s library!

In everyone’s life there comes a time when they go on a God search, which usually involves listening to “religious experts.” You watch CNN’s Larry King Live show and a supposed “religious expert” says one thing about what the Bible really says and the very next night a different “expert” states just the opposite. (Most people think, “O.K. What’s up with that?”) 

You read about Christians being put in Roman coliseums with lions because they refuse to denounce their King, missionaries in third world countries dying for their faith, study martyrs over the last twenty centuries being killed for “the cause” only to watch stories of TV preachers living lavish lifestyles of jets, limousines and mansions and say to yourself, “What’s wrong with this picture?”

The Biblical insights to all these relevant questions, especially in a crazy, confusing, 9/11, violent world, are in this no non-sense, straight ahead, “pull  no punches” examination of Christianity by Greg Haage, a successful professional musician and recording artist who’s now in ministry called to counsel and train others in “the faith” with one goal in mind: Getting people free from “religious works” or “denominational duties” and pointing them to the One who made the footprints in the sand.

About the Author

I believe God will use Greg’s book and ministry to reach those that are badly bruised. In this "labor of love" book, he is gentle in prodding people to the higher walk with the Lord yet speaks with authority in addressing things like legalism and "religiousity". He formulates and communicates very well and always gets to the heart of the matter.

He’s done us all a great service by including the original words and their meanings, with the multitude of scriptures he has examined. I believe it’s a much needed "cutting edge" work for both the seeker and the disciple. It’s a wealth of knowledge in one book and he always gets to the 'heart of the matter.'

We who call ourselves “Christians” are often found arguing over our beliefs.

Personally, as a Pastor, I find Greg’s insights quite helpful in bringing a very much-needed balance to today’s communicating of the Gospel and he delivers this in a very contemporary, palatable literary style. You’ll never regret spending time learning and applying this “balanced” look, that is conveyed in Greg’s exhaustive study of our Christian faith, different Bible translations and the original texts. 

Allow “The Real Deal” to aid your walk with the Lord—as I have—so it can have true substance and not just be a mere religious episode.”
