"This book is challenging me and helping me to discover a truer way to live authentically free. Sharon is a refreshing voice full of truth and wisdom."--Lysa TerKeurst, #1 New York Times bestselling author and president of Proverbs 31 Ministries

***

God never called us to be nice.

Niceness. It keeps the peace, wins friends, gains influence, and serves our reputations well. It looks a lot like following Jesus, but it takes all the power and freedom out of our lives. In this eye-opening book, Sharon Hodde Miller shares her own battle with this false faith, confesses the bad fruit it produced in her life, and offers practical steps for cutting down the tree at its root.

With biblical wisdom, surprising insight, and deep conviction, this book will help you

- identify the most common forms of nice Christianity and how they manifest in your life
- stop being nice and start practicing true kindness, honesty, courage, and joy
- develop a deeper, sturdier faith that can withstand life's storms and even flourish in the middle of them

Take a stand, take back your faith, and follow the Savior who was kind, gentle, compassionate, patient, and good, but never simply nice.
