Just in time for your summer reading, my book Bridges to Consensus—in Congregations is now available in Kindle format. For those of you who have not already checked out this book, and those who haven’t looked at it for awhile, I’d like to tell you a little more about it.
Bridges will teach you skills you can use in any setting, not just “in congregations.” Though many of the examples in the book are taken from congregational life, the characters handle those situations in the same way I would teach for business, friends or family situations.
Most readers, including those who never see the inside of the church except at weddings and funerals, find it easy to apply these skills to every aspect of their lives.
You don’t need a Kindle device to enjoy Bridges to Consensus in Kindle format. You can download Kindle reader software to your computer for free. I myself do not own a Kindle device because I prefer to read Kindle books on my computer.
The feature of this book many readers love most is the use of Sample Dialogues—tables with the characters’ statements running down one column and the skill user’s thought processes running down a second column. Each of the skill user’s thoughts lines up beside the statement it pertains to. It’s like listening in to a conversation while reading the mind of the skill user, and it’s a great way to learn how to actually apply these skills in real-life.
Bridges also features “Try This” sidebars–little exercises you can do to solidify a skill you’ve just read about by actually using that skill yourself while it’s fresh in mind.
Here’s a link to the e-book in Amazon’s Kindle store. Check it out for yourself. And don’t forget, the print version is also still available. You can also read more excerpts from Bridges, reviews and testimonials via the Book page of this site.
