The church in the West is at a critical moment, facing militant assaults from aggressive secularism and radical Islam. What is needed, says Os Guinness, are "impossible people," followers of Christ who are willing to face reality without flinching and respond with a faithfulness that is unwavering. Christians are called to be impossible people, full of courage and mercy in challenging times.

Everyone has at least one person--and possibly more--who tries their patience with every encounter. Almost every meeting turns into a conflict. It might be a spouse, a child, a sibling, a parent, an in-law, a boss, a co-worker--or just about anyone with whom you must interact regularly. Author Dick Purnell, founder and director of Single Life Resources, a division of Campus Crusade for Christ and author of 12 books on relationships, marriage, self-esteem, and spiritual development, offers help in his latest entry in his 31-Day Experiment Bible Study series. Prior titles include "Growing Closer to God" and "Knowing God by His Names" (nearly 50,000 in sales). This popular series is designed to help readers spend meaningful, consistent daily time with God. By investing only 20-30 minutes a day in one of these unique studies, the reader will discover a fresh perspective on life and a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ. Readers will learn about characters in the Bible who had conflicts and how they handled them. The reader will also learn how to avoid the mistakes others made in the Bible. They will finally be able to experience more pleasure and companionship with others when they put into practice the biblical teaching about forgiveness and reconciliation.

The impossible people who make life’s journey so difficult are everywhere—at the office, in restaurants, on airplanes, living next door, members of your own family. They’re . . . • your “nothing is ever good enough” boss • the “no price is ever low enough” client • the next-door neighbor who redefines the meaning of paranoia • the maître d’ who looks through you as if you don’t exist • the father-in-law who you know is always thinking about how much better a life his Janey or Joey would have if only married to someone other than you Ron Shapiro and Mark Jankowski give you a simple and highly effective 4-point plan for dealing with all of them and more—N.I.C.E. Their system shows you how to neutralize your emotions so you don’t just react but act purposefully and wisely. It enables you to identify the type of bully, tyrant, or impossible person you’re facing—the situationally difficult (something has happened that turns an otherwise reasonable person into a temporary terror); the strategically difficult (she has empirical evidence that being difficult is a strategy that gets results); or simply difficult (being difficult is his 24/7 M.O.). Then you’ll learn how to shape the outcome by controlling the encounter and, finally, how to get “unstuck” by exploring your options. Using colorful stories from all walks of life— “He called me the scum of the earth and it went downhill from there,” “First, lock all your vendors in a small room,” and “The boss from hell”—the authors bring their lessons to life, from business life to family life. From the Hardcover edition.

“[Goulston’s]ideas are a bit counter-intuitive but they really do shift the dynamic and help people diffuse and disarm the irrational person leading to more positive outcomes.” -- Online MBA Because some people are beyond difficult... Let’s face it, we all know people who are irrational. No matter how hard you try to reason with them, it never works. So what’s the solution? How do you talk to someone who’s out of control? What can you do with a boss who bullies, a spouse who yells, or a friend who frequently bursts into tears? In his book, Just Listen, Mark Goulston shared his bestselling formula for getting through to the resistant people in your life. Now, in his breakthrough new book Talking to Crazy, he brings his communication magic to the most difficult group of all—the downright irrational. As a psychiatrist, Goulston has seen his share of crazy and he knows from experience that you can’t simply argue it away. The key to handling irrational people is to learn to lean into the crazy—to empathize with it. That radically changes the dynamic and transforms you from a threat into an ally. Talking to Crazy explains this counterintuitive Sanity Cycle and reveals: Why people act the way they do • How instinctive responses can exacerbate the situation—and what to do instead • When to confront a problem and when to walk away • How to use a range of proven techniques including Time Travel, the Fish-bowl, and the Belly Roll • And much more You can’t reason with unreasonable people—but you can reach them. This powerful and practical book shows you how.
