Publisher's Summary

Intolerance is a beautiful thing...when you understand it from God's point of view.

There is a spiritual struggle for the hearts and minds of our young people. Cultural tolerance is pervasive in today's world. It seems to show up everywhere - in education, government, society...even within the church.

The influence of cultural tolerance is leading a generation to believe:

  • Each person creates his/her own moral truth
  • There is no universal moral truth
  • We are intolerant if we do not endorse the behavior and lifestyle choices of others

You can counter the influence of cultural tolerance.

In The Beauty of Intolerance, speakers and authors Josh and Sean McDowell provide clarity on today's cultural view of tolerance, detect its inaccuracies, and offer practical insight on:

  • Who created moral truth and its purpose
  • How to live out a biblical view of tolerance to people with whom you disagree
  • How to lead your kids and family to understand God's gift of sexual morality, why moral truth is universal, and how to experience love and acceptance that isn't based on performance

Raise up a generation to embrace a values system based on God and his word so they can live as "children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which [they] shine like stars in the universe" (Philippians 2:15 NIV).

Very well said

As a 26yo that loves Jesus and logic but also struggles to share my beliefs at the risk of making people feel unloved or even worse, hated, breaks my heart. His approach is loving and truth based. Love it!

Glad it was free

This book begins and ends with the authors redefining tolerance and truth to fit their agenda. The stories they tell are clearly fabricated as to highlight whatever point they are trying to make at that time. I made it through 3.5 hours of listening and ultimately couldn’t take it any longer.

Must read

Loved all of it! Great definition of what the world calls tolerance and driving home the fact that only the truth mixed with love and grace will win the lost.

Encouraging and Empowering

This is a fabulous well thought out work that describes how to effectively communicate. It stirs the reader to be more considerate without forfeiting our convictions. It is challenging to find the balance so as to uphold the truth but still show love and compassion. Well done and worth reading and putting in to practice.

Quite engaging and practical

The narrator, Bob Sauer, did great justice to the book.
The book directly addresses the dilemma faced by Christians in a post-modern world. The practical tips on raising godly Children in such an adverse environment are quite practical and insightful. A must-read!

An answer for what ails our culture

Our society has embraced tolerance as our highest value and good. The consequences of that I’ve been staggering and disorientating for every aspect of modern life. This book provides an answer and a response that is both well reasoned and compassionate and relatable. It is brilliant. Consider it to be essential aid for anyone seeking truth and wisdom. One of the McDowell’s best
