What does it look like to love someone you disagree with? Fighting, hatred, dissension—these things seem common in the wider Christian community today. Politics, theology, and even personal preference create seemingly insurmountable rifts. It’s hard not to see ourselves as “at war” with each other.
We’re not doomed to be stuck here, though. There is a twofold path out of this destructive war, out of seeing our brothers and sisters as enemies—and into a spacious place of loving each other even as we disagree.
In Loving Disagreement, Kathy Khang and Matt Mikalatos bring unique insight into how the fruit of the Spirit informs our ability to engage in profound difference and conflict with love. As followers of Jesus are planted in the Holy Spirit, the Spirit grows and bears good things in our lives—and relationships and communities are changed.
Each chapter features author conversations about the communal and cultural implications of the fruit of the Spirit.
Book includes a glossary of social and cultural terms.
“I encourage everyone to pick up several copies of this book, hand them to your friends (and frenemies), and let the conversations begin.” – José HUMPHREYS III, author of Seeing Jesus in East Harlem and coauthor of Ecosystems of Jubilee
