When Bad Christians Happen to Good People
Help for those who have been harmed by Christiansand those who have inflicted the wounds. Throughout history, Christians have done considerable damage to othersboth independently and in the name of Christ. Each time this occurs, one of Gods precious creations is wounded and the churchs witness to the world is grievously weakened. For years, unbelievers and Christians have rejected the church because of damaging encounters with a Christian, a Christian leader, or a group of Christians. No matter how much we wish to reverse the damage, however, we cannot reach the unchurched with the life-changing message of the gospelnor can we protect those still within the bodyunless we insist upon dramatic changes within our church communities. Targeting every person who has ever been hurt by a Christianas well as those believers responsible for inflicting such damaging woundsauthor Dave Burchett calls for a new way of relating that will bring healing to the church and transform our witness to the world.From the Trade Paperback edition.
