Publisher's Description

The world is filled with difficult people. It is impossible to avoid them. (You may have one, in particular, in your life right now.) In dealing with such people, we often try a number of coping strategies. Unfortunately, our best attempts at making peace often fail. This is because the difficult people in our lives are often what the Bible calls "fools." And dealing with fools requires a special kind of biblical wisdom.

You've tried everything–from confrontation to passivity. You've found out what doesn't work; now discover what does. Gain the tools you need to get along with others and conduct your relationships in a manner that honors God–and preserves your sanity!–in Foolproofing Your Life: Wisdom for Untangling Your Most Difficult Relationships. Learn how new insights from the book of Proverbs can help you respond to those relationships that seem hard to untangle.

    I used this site recently and was surprised how easy it was to use.

    Many Christian bookstores have close down in my area yet I continue to hear about great books and authors of Christian literature I want to investigate and/or read. I also like to give books as gifts.

    This site provides me a real time place to go, a simplified form for ordering, with exceptional shipping service and time.

    I highly recommend this book for any woman who is married to an unbelieving husband. It is also great for anyone dealing with unbelieving, difficult family members or others. This book may help more than a counselor. I would recommend all Christian counselors read this book to help those who are living with fools or narcissistic peopl.

    The author presents some scenarios of people who have dealt with difficult people, and gives some very wise and Scriptural ways of dealing with it, from dealing with difficult kids, and spouses, to co-workers and people we rub shoulders with on a regular basis. Written in an easy-to-read style, it is worth reading for anyone dealing with difficult people. It may not solve the problem, but will give the reader some needed help and guidance.
