Transparent: How to See Through the Powerful Assumptions that Control You

David W. Richardson Jr. Clovercroft, $15.99 trade paper (320p) ISBN 978-1-942557-56-2
According to Richardson, founder and president of the Assumptions Institute ministry, assumptions are crucial elements of human nature that control thought processes and actions on a daily basis. Writing extensively about what he describes as different types of assumer personalities, he uses the Lewis and Clark expedition as a simplistic analogy for his quest to map the psychological effects of assumptions. Richardson introduces the Critical Assumptions Test, a tool to help visualize where assumptions come from, such as news stories and movies. He takes the reader through exercises to learn how to better use the CAT in evaluating assumptions and seeing how “God truly gives knowledge, wisdom, and guidance.” At times, the book becomes bogged down in theory, but Richardson achieves his goal of explaining how the CAT tool can be beneficial to those looking to deepen their faith.
