Praise for the Print Edition

Have you ever wondered what would happen if Christians acted like Christians? Jeff Rosenau has thought deeply and wisely about this intriguing question. His persuasive new book provides the answer in a highly readable, engaging and convicting way. My recommendation: turn off your cell phone for a couple of hours and read this book. You’ll be glad you did.

—William L. Armstrong, President, Colorado Christian University

For those of us who want to be transformed so that by example we might restore peace in our own lives while improving our relations with others, Jeff Rosenau reminds us of God’s call to Christlike civility. This practical book teaches us how and why we ought to follow Jesus’ example as we enter every discussion with a firm conviction of Christian truth, a willingness to learn from those with whom we may disagree, and a desire to honor the humanity of even our fiercest foes. In a world where incivility and finger-pointing monologues are fast replacing Christlike dialogue, this book is needed more than ever.

—Samuel B. Casey, General Counsel, Advocates International

The most significant thing I can say about this book is the author lives the message God has given him to share. As Jeff points out, in most cases the relationship truly is more important than the issue and who happens to be “right." Giving up our right to be right is hard to do, even for Christians. Through Scripture and real life stories, this book conveys a convicting and inspirational call to a deeper level of maturity in Christ.

—Dave Legg, Vice President, People Resources, The Navigators
