Publisher's Summary

A remarkable vision for how Christians can live with countercultural gentleness in a perpetually angry, attacking, outraged time. 

“Wow! What a great book!" (Max Lucado)

In a defensive and divided era, how can followers of Jesus reveal a better way of living, one that loves others as God loves us? How can Christians be the kind of people who are known, as Proverbs puts it, to "turn away wrath"? Scott Sauls' compelling new audiobook points the way by helping listeners:

  • Grow in affection for Christ, who answers our hostility with gentleness;
  • Nurture a renewed, softened heart in light of Christ's gentleness toward us;
  • And forsake us-against-them mentalities, putting down our swords, and permeating a hostile world with gentleness.

For those who long for a more civil way of being, A Gentle Answer provides an inspiring and transformative path for countercultural gentleness in our perpetually angry, attacking, outraged time.

Reflection questions are available in the audiobook companion PDF download.

“I can’t think of a more needed and timely book.” (Dr. Paul David Tripp, best-selling author of New Morning Mercies)

“Reminds us of the essential and needed attribute of gentleness in a world steeped in outrage and cancel culture.” (Dr. Bryan Loritts, author of The Dad Difference)

“An urgent book for our fractured times.” (Jen Pollock Michel, award-winning author of Surprised by Paradox)

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Best book I’ve read this year.

This book had a profound impact on me. It exposed things that I need to change my life, and helped me interpret this cultural moment. I came away with a powerful conviction that the gentle answer modeled by Jesus is the true path of a disciple in an age of outrage.

A Timely Book for our culture

As I listened to this book, I began to realize that I was making a serious mistake by thinking that this book would really help someone else. When in actuality, I have come to realize that Everytime,I have a conversation with someone or enter into a dialogue on Social media, I need the principles outlined in this book. And everything that is talked about here is backed up by scripture.

An important book for a particularly acrimonious season

As a Christian, this book clearly lays out why we have no reason to be part of the current vitriol, and that it is our duty to demonstrate patience and kindness regardless of the spite coming our way. Well worth the time.
