Publisher's Summary

Two friends on opposite sides of the aisle provide a practical guide to grace-filled political conversation while challenging listeners to put relationship before policy and understanding before argument.

More than ever, politics seems driven by conflict and anger. People sitting together in pews every Sunday have started to feel like strangers, loved ones at the dinner table like enemies. Sarah Stewart Holland and Beth Silvers say there is a better way.       

As working moms on opposite ends of the political spectrum and hosts of a fast-growing politics podcast, Holland and Silvers have learned how to practice engaging conversation while disagreeing. In I Think You're Wrong (But I'm Listening), they share principles on how to give grace and be vulnerable when discussing issues that affect families, churches, the country, and the world. They provide practical tools to move past frustration and into productive dialogue, emphasizing that faith should inform the way people engage more than it does the outcome of that engagement. 

This urgently needed new audiobook reveals how to talk about politics in a way that inspires rather than angers and that pays spiritual dividends far past election day.

This book changed my life.

This book changed my life. I was one of those ignorant people that was unable to have a meaningful conversation with anyone who thought differently than me. I pushed away friends and family who didn’t share my views because I was so convinced I was right that it made everyone who disagreed with me immoral. I now see how I was limiting myself and how what I was doing was hurting not only myself but everyone around me. I can’t even put into words how much this book helped me in my every day life. Thank you!

These ladies are such a gift to the political conversation!

Sarah and Beth are talking about our current political climate in a way I don’t see anyone else talking about it. I’m totally guilty of proudly wearing my “team jersey” in my echo chamber, but, of course, know that isn’t sustainable if I’m serious about engaging with friends and colleagues about civic engagement and this country fulfilling its potential. Grateful for their wisdom and compassion and empathy for humans as individuals and this current climate of “my way or the high way”.

Highly recommend!

Two recovering lawyers from different political positions have researched specific issues to put together a wonderful book. I highly recommend listening and sharing with others. We need to learn more about individual issues as well as how to talk about them respectfully!

Disappointed... became very religious

I had really high hopes that this would be enlightening and help with talking with relatives with strong political point of views that differ from mine. It just seemed like a stream of bible versus... just not my thing.

Great reminder!

I needed this reminder to treat others with grace. Thank you for your calming presence, gentle admonishments and well thought out paradigm shifts towards those goals.

A Must Read to Level Understanding

I wondered at first if this book was 10 years too late. As I moved through each chapter, I acquired tools that were helpful and transformative in trying to have civil, grace-filled political discussions.

Beautiful advice for tough conversations

Communicating with friends/family with differing opinions can be so hard. Sarah & Beth's recommendations on approaching tough conversations with nuance makes it less-hard and much more productive.
Can't wait to read the follow-up!

Super actionable advice for long-term solutions

Loved this. Some really nuanced, hopeful and beautifully laid-out ideas. Each chapter ends with prompt reflection questions and super actionable, reletively short-term actions to take that will deliver long-term positive change. I will certainly be reviewing these chapters again throughout the year while I work through all of them.
Eloquently and charmingly read by the authors.
