A Gentle Answer: Our 'Secret Weapon' in an Age of Us Against Them [9781400216550]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

A remarkable vision for how Christians can live with countercultural gentleness in a perpetually angry, attacking, outraged time.

Wow! What a great book! -- Max Lucado

In a defensive and divided era, how can followers of Jesus reveal a better way of living, one that loves others as God loves us? How can Christians be the kind of people who are known, as Proverbs puts it, to turn away wrath? Scott Sauls's compelling new book shows Christians how to become people of a gentle answer in a politically, relationally, and culturally fractured world by helping readers:

  • grow in affection for Christ, who answers our hostility with gentleness;
  • nurture a renewed, softened heart in light of Christ's gentleness toward us;
  • and catch a vision to forsake us-against-them mentalities, put down our swords, and infect a hostile world with gentleness.

For those who long for a more civil way of being, A Gentle Answer reveals why answering hostility with gentleness is essential, how we can nurture our hearts to do so, and what a gentle answer looks like, both in the church and in the world.

A great, highly practical volume that points us to the tenderness of Jesus: 'a bruised reed he will not break'. -- Tim Keller, Pastor Emeritus, Redeemer Presbyterian Church, New York City

Wow! What a great book.... We will be better humans because of it. -- Max Lucado, bestselling author and pastor of Oak Hills Church in San Antonio, Texas

Scott Sauls is the preeminent voice for fractured, polarized times.... Scott's every word is read under our roof. -- Ann Voskamp, bestselling author of One Thousand Gifts and The Broken Way

This book could not have come at a better time, as we navigate a culture of polarization....This is a heart changing book! -- Rebekah Lyons, bestselling author, Rhythms of Renewal and You are Free
