Product Description

In today's polarized world, friends and strangers clash with each other over issues large and small. Coworkers have conflicts in the office. Married couples fight over finances. And online commenters demonize one another's political and religious perspectives. Is there any hope for restoring civil discourse? Communications expert Tim Muehlhoff provides a strategy for having difficult conversations, helping us move from contentious debate to constructive dialogue. By acknowledging and entering into the other person's story, we are more likely to understand where they're coming from and to cultivate common ground. Insights from Scripture and communication theory provide practical ways to manage disagreements and resolve conflicts. We can disagree without being disagreeable. And we can even help another see different points of view and learn from one another. Find out how.

About the Author

In addition to being an author, Tim Muehlhoff is a professor of communication at Biola University in La Mirada, California where he teaches classes in family communication, interpersonal communication, apologetics, gender, and conflict resolution. He completed a Ph.D. in communication theory at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (2003) where his dissertation focused on helping couples move past marital gridlock—difficult issues in marriage that won’t go away despite time and effort—by working through an original four-phase communication model. Since 1986 he has served with Cru (formerly Campus Crusade for Christ) in the campus ministry, short-term missions (Kenya, Russia, Lithuania), and currently with Keynote as a trainer for The Comm Lab—a center that trains Cru staff, pastors, and lay people in evangelistic speaking and apologetics. For the past 18 years Tim and his wife, Noreen, have been frequent speakers at FamilyLife Marriage Conferences. Tim and Noreen live in Brea, California with their three sons, Michael, Jason, and Jeremy.
