Publisher's Summary

God never called us to be nice.  

What happens when we replace courage with compromise? What happens when we replace honesty with likability? What happens when we replace conviction with cliches? What happens when we replace discipleship to Christ with a devotion to nice? 

We live in a culture that prizes niceness as one of its highest virtues. Niceness keeps the peace, wins friends, gains influence, and serves our reputations well, but it also takes the teeth out of our witness and the power out of our faith. When we choose to be nice instead of faithful, we bear fruits that are bland, bitter, empty, and rotten to the core. 

In this life-changing book, Sharon Hodde Miller explores the seemingly innocent idol that has crept into our faith and quietly corrupted it, producing the bad fruits of cowardice, inauthenticity, shallowness, and more. Then she challenges listeners to cultivate a better tree, providing practical steps to reclaim our credibility as followers of Christ, and bear better, richer, more life-giving fruits.

I'm kinda Nice

I am so obsessed with this topic! I have been asking God to reveal to me the truth about why I feel I'm not ministering with passion the way I used to...I stumbled across Lisa's book and feel like God spoke to me why? I've been a little too NICE instead of KIND

Nice?

I enjoyed it. I have spent a lot of time trying to be a nice person...this has helped open my eyes to the shallowness of niceness.

Much needed!

The church is in DESPERATE need of this message! It’s an incredible tool to measure our motives behind our “niceness” and help us to be the true voice of Christ to the body as well as the world!
