In Defense of Kindness: Why It Matters, How It Changes Our Lives, and How It Can Save the World
Coming in October — Pre-order now!
What if kindness could change the world? With a playful spirit, tender heart, and an unwavering commitment to justice, Bruce Reyes-Chow kindness enthusiast, pastor, and leadership coach invites us to explore the many ways in which kindness can bring about healing, wholeness, and hope in ourselves and the world.
Culture is at a crossroads when it comes to kindness. These days we either view kindness and an inert act based solely on an absence of being a jerk or we see acts of kindness as heroic and herculean, and beyond the reach and capability of mere mortals. Choosing kindness is also exhausting. The public and private back-and-forth exchanges of hatred and dehumanizing that is more about ratings, retweets, and winning than relationships, community, and relationships, is taking a toll on our motivation to even contemplate kindness as a valid response. In Defense of Kindness makes a case that we each can choose kindness as a way to experience community and wholeness in new ways. Through the unfiltered sharing of his own experiences, Bruce invites the reader into an adventure of discovery and rediscovery of kindness of heart, mind, spirit, and action.
