Becoming a Four-Faced Christian is Pia's first book. It's an intimate look into her journey of transformation. It's also a WAKE-UP CALL for the Church to start meeting the deep needs of those victimized by abuse of all kinds. She shares how we, as Christians, need to develop Jesus' four faces, as seen in the passages from Ezekiel 1:10 and Revelations 4:7. Jesus is calling us to become as "bold as the lion," as "strong as the ox," as "beautifully authentic as the best human being," and as "divinely transcendent as the eagle." That can only happen if we are willing to leave the shallow waters of Christianity behind and risk diving deep into the "spiritual ocean," where God reserves His richest rewards for those who truly hunger and thirst for Him. When we resurface and the broken, especially the young, SEE only Jesus in us, Pia says, "they will be lining up outside our church doors, demanding to be let in--instead of waiting for hours to get the latest Coachella tickets."
