Some people make every effort to avoid them altogether; others dive in enthusiastically, damaging relationships in the process. A solid middle ground is difficult to find—especially for those who want to make sure they’re following a biblical model for these tough encounters. Lori Roeleveld firmly believes that the dialogues everyday Christians delay are often the very channels God wants to use to deepen relationships and transform lives. And she is eager to address the challenges they pose and to guide readers to mean- ingful conversations that rely on the wisdom of the Bible rather than the world. In The Art of Hard Conversations, Roeleveld provides motivation, inspiration, and practical, readily applied skills to make those tricky talks more effective. Through funny, vulnera- ble personal stories, sound biblical teaching, and sections of tips and assignments to practice, the principles here are guaranteed to increase the confidence and competence of Christians in dis- cussing sensitive topics of every kind. Lori Stanley Roeleveld has degrees in psychology and biblical studies, but learned most of what she knows in life’s trenches, raising children and working with families in crisis. She is cur- rently a wraparound facilitator in Hope Valley, Rhode Island, working with at-risk families, as well as those who have a child with a serious emotional disorder. Lori’s previous books include Jesus and the Beanstalk and Running from a Crazy Man (and Other Adventures Traveling with Jesus).
