內容簡介 Sometimes we have important things to say to other Christians, but if we deliver our message ungraciously, they won't benefit from it. Author John Crotts points out that God cares about how we say what we say: "It is not enough always to say the truth; you must also say the truth in love." In Graciousness, the author addresses Christians who are zealous for God's truth yet struggle to communicate it graciously-- in a loving way. Filled with practical instruction and wise insights, this book includes a biblical description of graciousness, with a look at positive examples and commands from the Bible and methods for cultivating graciousness in various areas of the Christian life.
