Sibling Rivalry in the Household of God (Adams)

(You save $4.74 )
Calvary Press Publishing

Many of us have experienced sibling rivalry: poking, pushing; hurtful words that sting. Whether between children or adults, sibling rivalry is perhaps the worst kind of contention, and tends to be more dangerous, more vicious and longer lasting than most. Unfortunately, what is true in our families is also true in the church.

This book is about the cause and effects of rivalry among brothers and sisters in Christ—and what can be done about it. It is the Christian’s duty to prevent such divisions in the family of God. When such divisions do occur, however, it is also the duty of Christians to turn possible disasters into God-glorifying victories. Every Christian needs to read and learn from the pages of this book. It may even revolutionize your church…and you!
