The Law of Kindness: Serving with Heart and Hands
We’re sorry but you missed this offer. It is no longer free or a deal.
“And be ye kind to another,” begins Ephesians 4:32. Christians are called to this standard, but how seriously do we take it?
In ‘The Law of Kindness’, Mary Beeke examines the idea of kindness, shows how it is developed, and gives helpful advice for putting it into action, with specific chapters addressed to wives, husbands, parents, teachers, and children. Readers will be struck by their own lack of kindness, captivated by God’s kindness toward us in Jesus Christ, and motivated to cultivate more of this precious virtue.

Mary Beeke is the wife of Dr. Joel Beeke and the mother of Calvin, Esther, and Lydia. She has served as a registered nurse and an elementary teacher and has her M.A.T. in learning disabilities from Calvin College. Since 1989, she has been a homemaker and a pastor’s wife.
“Mary Beeke—wife, mother, friend to many—is herself Mrs. Kindness personified. When she writes about this theme, therefore, everyone should listen. Full of wisdom, grace, story, good-humor, and a substantial dose of down-to-earth heavenly realism, The ‘Law of Kindness’ is a unique and remarkable book. Christians and non-Christians will find it marvelously honest, realistic, and practical. Both deeply challenging and wonderfully helpful, this book will surely be a modern classic of its kind.” – Dr. Sinclair B. Ferguson
“Mary Beeke has given us an invaluable source of reflection upon a much needed Christian virtue—kindness. In doing so, she has provided us with breathtaking examples of Christian kindness in action, interspersed with practical applications on this Christ-like fruit of the Spirit. This will prove a deservedly popular book, one that readers will return to again and again.” – Dr. Derek Thomas
