Publisher's Summary

Best-selling author Timothy Keller and legal scholar John Inazu bring together a thrilling range of artists, thinkers, and leaders to provide a guide to faithful living in a pluralistic, fractured world.

How can Christians today interact with those around them in a way that shows respect to those whose beliefs are radically different but that also remains faithful to the gospel? Timothy Keller and John Inazu bring together illuminating stories - their own and from others - to answer this vital question. Uncommon Ground gathers an array of perspectives from people thinking deeply and working daily to live with humility, patience, and tolerance in our time. Contributors include:

  • Lecrae
  • Tish Harrison Warren
  • Kristen Deede Johnson
  • Claude Richard Alexander
  • Shirley Hoogstra
  • Sara Groves
  • Rudy Carrasco
  • Trillia Newbell
  • Tom Lin
  • Warren Kinghorn

Providing varied and enlightening approaches to reaching faithfully across deep and often painful differences, Uncommon Ground shows us how to live with confidence, joy, and hope in a complex and fragmented age.

"Loving engagement with folks with whom we disagree does not come easily for many of us with strong Christian convictions. Tim Keller and John Inazu are not only models for how to do this well, but in this fine book they have gathered wise conversation partners to offer much needed counsel on how to cultivate the spiritual virtues of humility, patience, and tolerance that are necessary for loving our neighbors in our increasingly pluralistic culture." (Richard Mouw, Professor of Faith and Public Life, Fuller Theological Seminary)

"For anyone struggling to engage well with others in an era of toxic conflict, this book provides a framework, steeped in humility, that is not only insightful but is readily actionable. I'm grateful for the vulnerability and wisdom offered by each of the twelve leaders who contributed to this book. The task of learning to love well - neighbors and enemies alike - is long and urgent, and it can be costly. And yet, as this book shows us, because it is the work of Jesus, we can pursue this love with great hope." (Gary A. Haugen, founder and CEO, International Justice Mission)

Not what I expected

I gave up about half way through the book. I just didn't connect with it and the story it was telling. I was expecting more stories and lessons about how believers engaged with people and the culture around them in the course of normal life and business.

narrators did not represent

The writings were incredibly thoughtful, and the narration was very professional. I was sad however that it was not narrated by the many diverse authors, instead by 2 homogenous professional narrators who represented neither the diverse backgrounds or personalities that authored the chapters about diversity. The irony is a little painful.

deceptive

several of the individual contributors assumed the progressive presuppositions which don't match reality and so I did not find this helpful. I had higher expectations from Timothy Keller. If the parties can not agree on what is true, how can there be any "Common Ground "?

Disappointed by lack of Depth and Relevance

Forget that Tim Keller doesn’t narrate. What is truly disappointing in this is the lack of a real Tim Keller originality.

Thought provoking

It’s easy to demonize people we see as destroying our country. This book helps us develop tools to express love to those who operate out of hate; but deceive themselves into believing they are helping this country when they are tearing it down by putting politics in front of faith.

Great book! Audio too quiet.

Had to listen at full volume to hear. On multiple speakers. Other than that, great!

great book - narration not so geat

I loved the personal experiences interpreted in light of the Christian scriptures. However the male narrator's voice dropped out at times with his voice tone changes. Female narrator's was more Audible, but I just didn't care for it.

I enjoyed it

The stories from the contributors made it more real to understand the role tolerance plays in peaceful co-existence with people who don't share our world views.

Excellent!

One of my best reads in 2020-2021. If you want to understand better the issues facing this world today and how a Christian is called to live out the Gospel, this is the book to read!
