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
“I love everything that Scott Sauls writes.” — Christine Caine
What if Christians became the best advertisement for Jesus?
Jesus said his followers would be a light to the world and a city on a hill–a warmly inviting, neighbor-loving, grace- and truth-filled destination for all. He envisioned his followers as life-giving neighbors, bosses, employees, and friends, the kind of people who return insults with kindness and persecution with prayers. Rooted in biblical convictions, they would extend love, empathy, and care to one another as well as to those who don’t share their beliefs. Over time their movement would become irresistible to every nation, tribe, and tongue. Irresistible Faith is a blueprint for pursuing this vision in our current moment, of redeemed individuals and a renewed community working for a restored world. This is a way of being that gives a tired, cynical world good reason to pause and reconsider Christianity–and to start wishing it was true.
“I miss the kind of church Scott describes in this book, and I don’t think I am alone.” — Donald Miller, author of Blue Like Jazz and Building a StoryBrand
In this grab bag, we have 6 e-books from Intervarsity Press. The prices and sale dates that they have provided are under each book cover.
We live in a world where real friendship is hard to find. Suspicious of others and insecure about ourselves, we retreat into the safety of our small, self-made worlds. Now more than ever, it’s easy to avoid people with whom we disagree or whose life experiences don’t mirror our own. Safe among like-minded peers and digital “friends,” we really don have to engage with those who can challenge and enhance our limited perspectives. Tragically, even the church can become a place that minimizes diversity and reinforces isolation.
Jesus models a much richer vision for friendship. In BeFriend, popular teacher, Scott Sauls, invites us to see and savor the broad and deep love of God. In twenty-one eloquent meditations on what God’s love can look like in our everyday lives, Scott invites us to expand our circle of friends.
Scott has met too many people whose first impulse is to fence off their lives with relational barriers that only end up starving their own souls.
Yes, it’s true: Real friendship is costly. Love does make us vulnerable. But, without risk, our lives will remain impoverished.
Join Scott in BeFriend as he summons you toward diverse friendships that can enrich your life and, in the process, reveal a better version of yourself.
