Editorial Reviews

[STARRED REVIEW] Numerous opportunities for introspection, study, and practice in developing "holy habits" that foster Christ-like communication are presented in this well-organized and accessible guide. Coauthors Campolo and Darling (The God of Intimacy and Action) offer combined expertise in preaching, public speaking and spiritual direction, resulting in a thought-provoking, valuable resource for Christians seeking to engage in "spiritually charged communication." They draw insights from the writing of John Wesley as well as from interviews conducted with contemporary Christian figures Brian McLaren, Mindy Caliguire, and Shane Claiborne to illuminate ways that Jesus' ministry explicitly models how today's Christians can live in "dynamic communion with God, ourselves, others and the world." The authors apply a Christian lens to familiar communication techniques such as empathic listening, practicing forgiveness, and knowing one's audience. For example, in noting the importance of self-awareness for loving communication, they quote Jesus' admonition, "First take the log out of your own eye," and then suggest several spiritual practices to help Christians identify personal strengths and weaknesses. This book's blend of kindly spiritual insights and practical wisdom may well appeal to those beyond the target Christian audience. (June) (Publishers Weekly, April 12, 2010)
