Publisher's Summary

Whether the issue of the day on Twitter, Facebook, or cable news is our sexuality, political divides, or the perceived conflict between faith and science, today's media pushes each one of us into a frustrating clash between two opposing sides. Polarizing, us-against-them discussions divide us and distract us from thinking clearly and communicating lovingly with others.

Scott Sauls, like many of us, is weary of the bickering and is seeking a way of truth and beauty through the conflicts. Jesus Outside the Lines presents Jesus as this way. Sauls shows us how the words and actions of Jesus reveal a response that does not perpetuate the destructive fray. Jesus offers us a way forward - away from harshness, caricatures, and stereotypes.

Pick this book!

Everything I've ever tried to teach my kids about living right loving others loving God and loving their own self and life is taught in this book.

It is the common sense Christians lack when applying the Good Book to others.

Pulls you out of the dichotomy of today's world

Today's world is so oppressive with making everyone choose between two completely imperfect sides then harshly judge you for whichever side you choose. Scott leads you out of a no win situation and onto the path of Jesus.

Thought provoking and wise counsel

Scott's somewhat unconventional approach inspired me to think differently, more creatively, and more freely about my behavior as a Christian. I particularly appreciate the reminder to be open to learning something of value even from those I generally disagree with.
