The world sends out a clear and pervasive message - strive, do well, don't fail. A performance based culture with its attendant fears and insecurities can distort our view of God and sabotage our relationship with Him, ourselves and others. With at times excruciating levels of honesty and vulnerability, Peter McHugh exposes the lies that had taken hold in his own life. As he puts it:
'As I pursued answers I was lead to unexpected places. Places in my secret inner world. Thoughts, ideas and beliefs that did not conform to God's word, to His view of me, and my view of Him. This was to be a profound part of my voyage of mercy and it has changed me deeply.'
The book is about Peter's own journey, but his frank reflections and assessments take the reader to a place where they may begin their own voyage of mercy.
Peter has elucidated in this manuscript issues which I believe are at the heart of Christian discipleship and leadership. They are arguably the most critical issues to be addressed currently within Western Christianity.

May this book be the final nail in the coffin of religion that has brutally restrained the people of God from stepping into our purpose in God.
