    Probably the Best Idea in the World

    At the heart of everything is one very good idea--the true currency of our society, the key to all human flourishing and happiness. This idea is quite simple. It is love, actually. Love God. Love one another. Your neighbor. Your enemy.

    Simple--but far from easy, as statistics and prolific stories of broken friendships, toxic workplaces, divided churches, dysfunctional families, and lonely people testify. And yet love is a commandment. The greatest commandment. Not an optional extra, not just a good idea, but the most important order, the one from which all the others flow.

    So how can we begin to follow this command? With brilliant storytelling and deep theological insight, Mark Greene explores a liberating framework to help us make decisions that enhance rather than damage our relationships--whether we're replacing a dishwasher or managing a team. He challenges us to put relationships deliberately back at the center of our calling and discipleship.

    Full of humor, contemporary examples, and research, Probably the Best Idea in the World shows how Jesus's emphasis on thinking relationally is not only a liberating basis for our personal lives but also a dynamic foundation for our workplaces, our society, and our global community.
