Speaking Truth in Love is a blueprint for communication that strengthens community in Christ. The principles outlined in this pivotal work are specific to counseling, yet extend to marriage, family, friendship, business, and the church.

* Have you ever looked for a better way to talk
to difficult people?
* Have you ever wanted to express faith and love more naturally
in your relationships?
Practical in its approach yet comprehensive in its scope, Speaking Truth in Love is sure to become required reading for anyone interested in pursuing a career as a counselor or anyone else who longs for ways to redeem relationships.

"This wonderful volume from David Powlison is a gift to the body of Christ that will help us use God's word more skillfully in what he calls "significant, life rearranging mutual counseling." If we are really committed to genuine community in the church, this is the biblical pathway that will lead us there."
