In this profound and thought-provoking book, Rich Nathan helps us relate to the world the way God does. Our zeal as Christians often causes us to alienate the very people God wants to embrace, such as New Agers, abortionists, homosexuals, and radical feminists. But people are not our enemies - evil is, and evil is not just a matter of "labels", but of lies and sin that affect Christians and non-Christians alike. And truth can be found where we least expect it. So if we want others to believe that the gospel truly is good news, we must prove it through our actions and attitudes toward those with whom we disagree.

An invitation to look at people outside of the church, not with condemnation or negative stereotypes, but with compassion to understand that feminists, postmodernists, homosexuals, liberals, and new agers are not enemies to avoid.
