Love Kindness: Discover the Power of a Forgotten Christian Virtue

Barry Corey . Tyndale, $22.99 (256p) ISBN 978-1-4964-1157-0
Corey, president of Biola University, laments the atrophy of Christian kindness. Kindness is not some weak, mushy, ever-changing emotion, he notes, but rather a strong, brave, determined, and frequently selfless way of living. Corey guides Christ-followers through 13 dynamically presented chapters on all the varying aspects of kindness, providing personal examples of how believers often fail to demonstrate this fruit of the Spirit (especially in the public square) when cornered by those who disagree with them. He implores every Christian to hold firm to the truths taught in Scripture, believing that many Christ-followers fail to show kindness when interacting with those of different faith backgrounds. Corey's text is robust with scriptural examples, providing depth to the contemporary examples of how kindness can work to open new dialogues. Corey's book will be of interest to Christian readers and church communities striving to engage new members. (Feb.)
