You are not who you were
The Heart of Man film powerfully portrays the unending love of our heavenly Father - a love that pursues us wherever we go and is consistently inviting us into freedom and relationship. For many of us this sounds wonderful, idyllic . . . and completely unrealistic. Below are several Trueface resources to help you begin experiencing this incredible truth.
While many voices spoke into the film, Trueface provided much of the theological backbone and helped to frame the true solution to our shame and broken hearts. We also helped to shape the follow-up study guide to this film, drawing you deeper into your own story with the Father. Bruce McNicol, our president and CEO, is an executive producer of the film and John Lynch, one of our co-authors, appears in the film.
