The world is filled with difficult people. It is impossible to avoid them. (You may have one, in particular, in your life right now.) In dealing with such people, we often try a number of coping strategies. Unfortunately, our best attempts at making peace often fail. This is because the difficult people in our lives are often what the Bible calls "fools." And dealing with fools requires a special kind of biblical wisdom.
You've tried everything-from confrontation to passivity. You've found out what doesn't work; now discover what "does. "Gain the tools you need to get along with others and conduct your relationships in a manner that honors God-and preserves your sanity -in "Foolproofing Your Life: Wisdom for Untangling Your Most Difficult Relationships." Learn how new insights from the book of Proverbs can help you respond to those relationships that seem hard to untangle.
