Imagine what our world might look like if Christians became known for remarkable love, as well as life-giving truth.
The stakes are high and the need is great for Christians to represent Jesus to a watching world. And today, we have more influence than ever before--for better and for worse. We are among the first generations to have access to a global megaphone through social media. But it's not enough to speak truth louder to a noisy culture. To counter the reputation Christians have earned, our love must be just as loud.
Ask evangelist Matt Brown, and he will tell you Christians today are facing a crisis of influence. In our rush to speak truth to today's tensions, cultural issues, and trending controversies, it becomes all too easy to focus on proving our points rather than extending God's grace. Conversely, when we seek only to love yet never proclaim a better way, we short-circuit God's plan.
Truth Plus Love invites you to rediscover the biblical framework for engaging culture as ambassadors of Christ. Through biblical insight, cultural analysis, and practical principles, Matt Brown outlines how to champion truth without compromise, how to love unconditionally, and ultimately, how to step into this great adventure of representing God to the world. It's hard, it's messy, and it's the unfinished project of a lifetime, yet here we find our great adventure: representing God to a watching world.

This book helps us share the love of Jesus to the world we live in and live out the truth. I would recommend it . It is a great book. Also, as a leader it is a great book just to be salt and light to others.
In our world, Matt's voice is one I trust immensely. He's the same person in person as he is online. As an author, evangelist, and person, he is someone who embodies the Jesus way of influencing! And that's truth + love! I have found this book to be encouraging on a soul level, and I'm confident you will as well! I'd definitely recommend this read for anyone wanting to take their leadership to the next level or those wanting to grow their influence with others for the fame and glory of Jesus!
