Overview

We humans talk a lot, so you'd think we'd be good at communicating with one another. But . . . well, we're not.
And the result is hurt, misunderstandings, frustration, division, and sometimes all-out war.




Yet whether we're trying to repair a relationship, interact on social media, or understand someone whose beliefs differ from our own, there is hope! The people around us bear God's image. As we learn to treat them accordingly, our communication will become a powerful means of showing God's love to them.



Laying out eleven key principles for loving conversation, pastor Tim Shorey guides us to a memorable, scriptural approach to communication that can transform our relationships.

Editorial Reviews

Ruth Naomi Floyd

In Respect the Image, Tim Shorey reminds us of the importance of being engaged listeners who seek authenticity and love genuinely as a pathway to peace with our neighbor. With biblical insight and personal transparency Tim effectively provides practical steps to pursuing peace with those with whom we might disagree; requiring truth-telling and vulnerability, while recognizing the full humanity of others, and embracing both our uniqueness as well as our unity in Jesus Christ as an image of the gospel. Respect the Image is a focused and helpful plea for greater listening and learning in all our relationships.

Marty Machowski

In Respect the Image Tim Shorey provides the glasses we need to see people as God does, to love and honor them for who God made them to be - image bearers of the King. Shorey offers young and old, single and married and people of all backgrounds, a compelling biblical pattern for living life in relationship with one another. Get this book, read it and live it out—you won’t be disappointed.

Diane Hunt

Expertly crafted, this rich biblical treatment of relational and racial unity blesses and encourages. Tim challenges us to see and respect the image of God in everyone, those like us and those not like us. A high and holy calling which, if every believer heeds, will glorify the One True God and bring change to our homes, communities, churches, and nation. A practical book to read often and practice always.

Mike Seaver

Respect the Image is a winsome, creative, and biblically-faithful book that was a pure joy to read.  Shorey does an excellent job of compelling the reader to grow spiritually in the important area of communication and to realize the spiritual significance of that task.  The book addresses how communication impacts racial, social, and political tensions and gives practical ways to move forward in hard conversations.  Respect the Image is one of the best books I've read this year and I have already commended it to my church family.

As I read this powerful and riveting book, I found myself confronted by sound, theological truth laid out in plain , easy-to-understand language. I got no further than the first chapter before I was confronted by the bold truth penned by Tim. His winsome style of writing drew me in, making it easier to receive Spirit-filled correction and admonition on how I speak to others, beginning at home! This should be a sermon series for churches across our nation!

Jeffrey S. Black

There are Christian resources on communication in human relationships that tell the reader lots of stories, but fail to connect these practical anecdotes, challenges, and instructions to biblical truths that transform the heart. On the other hand, there are resources that tell the reader eternal truths about conducting relationships as God intended, but leave the reader with little in the way of procedural knowledge- no practical answers to 'How do I do that?' Respect the Image helps us all precisely because Tim aims to make every truth transformative and every story connect to the truth.

Kyle Huber

The opening chapter is exceptional and will serve people on many levels…The entire book is deeply theological and gospel saturated. The applications are clear and well connected to the truths presented. And the writing is winsome. Although the author presses into areas that can be challenging for people…it is done with a pastoral tone and without any harshness. I would recommend this book and use it for my leadership (and any other) small group. This book will serve the church well
