A Christian Guide to Being Kind in an Unkind World
We have never seen more hate, crime, and perversion in modern times than we are seeing now. Noble ideas of justice, equality, and equity have been reduced to power and money grabs. We no longer live in a society where people are civil with each other.
What’s the answer to the kind of disintegration of society that we have seen since the rise of the so-called “Cancel Culture”? Christian author Donald L. Hughes says the answer to all the evils of present-day society is doing kind acts in the name of Jesus Christ.
Rather than debate theology, politics, or the latest topic of social activism, Hughes suggests that people start showing kindness to each other. He says it starts with Christians because Jesus Christ demonstrated kindness during his earthly ministry and because the Holy Spirit empowers us to be kind today.
Being Kind in an Unkind World: How to Overcome Evil with Good in Your Daily Life offers a blueprint for Christian action. This book is ideal to use for your Christian education class or group Bible study.
