The Bride(Zilla) of Christ : What to Do When God's People Hurt God's People Paperback / softback
An open and honest discussion about repairing breakdowns in Christian community from two guys who've dished out and experienced their fair share of brokenness.
One of the strongest metaphors for the church in the New Testament is "The Bride of Christ." This imagery conjures up a sense of celebration and unity; however, all too often we are frustrated by the messiness of relationships in Christian community.
Ted Kluck and Ronnie Martin have experienced this sort of friction and painfulness on both sides of the equation.
As ministry leaders in some seasons of life and as lay persons in others, Ted and Ronnie have plenty of stories; stories in which they've been deeply hurt, and others in which they've regrettably wounded others.
Through narrative and biblical exposition, Ted and Ronnie offer practical advice about how to respond when God's people hurt God's people.
The reader will not only appreciate Ted and Ronnie's honest and authentic approach (they are quite willing to admit when they've been in the wrong), but will also be encouraged by instructive teaching towards a way forward. This is not merely a place for Christians to air their dirty laundry, but rather for two respected leaders to be honest about our shortcomings while offering a lot of positive steps to move forward in conflict and discord.
