Recommendation - August 21, 2020


This week we have just one recommended resource. It is a short but wise and relevant book called Conscience: What It Is, How To Train It, and Loving Those Who Differ.

The authors are Andrew David Naselli and J.D. Crowley.

Here's what it says on the back cover:

What do you do when you disagree with other Christians? How do you determine which convictions are negotiable and which are not? How do you get along with people who have different personal standards?

All of these questions have to do with the conscience. Yet there is hardly a more neglected topic among Christians. In this much-need book, a New Testament scholar and a cross-cultural missionary explore all thirty passages in the New Testament that deal with the conscience, showing how your conscience impacts virtually every aspect of life, ministry, and missions. As you come to see your conscience as a gift from God and learn how to calibrate it under the lordship of Jesus Christ, you will not only experience the freedom of a clear conscience but also discover how to lovingly interact with those who hold different convictions.

It is available from Powell's, on Amazon, or through Crossway, the book's publisher.
