When Bad Christians Happen to Good People: Where We Have Failed Each Other and How to Reverse the Damageby Dave Burchett
Synopses & Reviews
Help for those who have been harmed by Christians-and those who have inflicted the wounds. Throughout history, Christians have done considerable damage to others-both independently and in thename of Christ. Each time this occurs, one of God's precious creations is wounded and the church's witness to the world is grievously weakened.
For years, unbelievers and Christianshave 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 thelife-changing message of the gospel-nor can we protect those still within the body-unless we insist upon dramatic changes within our church communities.
Targeting every person whohas ever been hurt by a Christian-as well as those believers responsible for inflicting such damaging wounds-author Dave Burchett calls for a new way of relating that will bring healing to the churchand transform our witness to the world.
