Jesus calls us to live by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God (Matt 4:4). However, sometimes (maybe many times) we live, love, and work by lies promulgated in our culture. In this short and witty book, Im identifies seven lies we must jettison: (1) you are what you do, (2) you are what you know, (3) you are who you know, (4) you are what you experience, (5) you are what you own, (6) you are who you raise, and (7) you are your past. These subtle and subversive lies, that find their locus in the gig economy according to Im, are not benign. Rather, these lies will change the way we live, work, and love. Hopefully, this book will liberate us all from these lies so that we might fully live by the truth of God’s word.
