“Bogusness is prevalent throughout life associations… [It] is a big problem in our present society,” Dr. Betty F. Minus-Murrell explains. In her second publication titled “Unbogus: Living the Authentic Life” (published by AuthorHouse), the author portrays not only her own special journey from bogusness to unbogusness, but also speaks to the readers to self-evaluate bogusness in their own lives, to be free of lies and pretenses, and ultimately become one with their inner person. She calls to live the authentic, unbogus life in order to be fulfilled, happy, content, and to possess the joy, peace and love that allows one to live the abundant life God has promised us. In the heart of her book, she inspires to “know your flaws as well as your assets, appropriately deal with both through the Word of God. In striving to live an unbogus life, you must remember you cannot change people, but you can focus on authenticating yourself and living a life pleasing to God.”

Minus-Murrell tells how she began to see bogusness all around her: in the work place, among family members, in friendships and relationships, in world politics and social media; and how the modern society’s disregard for godly values and right living is destroying people’s relationships with God, each other and nations around the world. Moreover, she points out that “it is a human natural action and reaction to put on masks of pretense to disguise our true selves, our true feelings, and to protect our emotions, reputations and our self-esteem.” The author then motivates people to be delivered “from this stronghold by the power of God” and experience authentic (unbogus) living.

Regardless of gender, age, race, religious affiliation or socio-economic status, Minus-Murrell dedicates her spiritual book to all readers. “Unbogus” reminds that:

God matures us through process. He always looks beyond the obvious of what we are in the beginning—so flawed, broken, rebellious, weak, and bogus—to what He has programmed us to be. Therefore, we must not remain in our seed state, but allow God to take us through His process of growth and development. Whoever, we were born to be, we already are, but bringing it out requires a process.
