The Beauty of Intolerance : Setting a generation free to know truth and love
Today's message of cultural acceptance is dangerously distorted and deceptive. In a world that shouts: "If you truly care about other people, you must agree that their beliefs, values, lifestyle, and truth claims are equal and as valid as yours!" it's no wonder our youth are confused. The Beauty of Intolerance-brand-new from Josh McDowell with son Sean McDowell-cuts through the confusion and points readers back to the place where the only truth resides...Jesus Christ. Tied directly to the Heroic Truth initiative launched by the Josh McDowell Ministry, the McDowells will share how a biblical view of truth can counter cultural tolerance and encourage a love and acceptance of others apart from their actions with a heart of Christlike compassion.

"Here's a timely message-clearly presented, creatively explained, effectively argued, and lovingly offered as an antidote to the confusion so many people feel about this vital topic." -- Lee Strobel, professor at Houston Baptist University "If there's a 'hot button buzzword' in our society, it's tolerance. Josh and Sean McDowell have done an excellent job of showing how cultural tolerance differs from true tolerance. This book is filled with practical advice on how Christians can lovingly and winsomely express truth in an environment where so many oppose it." -- Jim Daly, President-Focus on the Family
