Intolerance is a beautiful thing ... when you understand it from God’s point of view.

There is a spiritual struggle for the hearts and minds of our young people. Cultural tolerance is pervasive in today’s world. It seems to show up everywhere — in education, government, society ... even within the church.

The influence of cultural tolerance is leading a generation to believe ...

• Each person creates his/her own moral truth.
• There is no universal moral truth.
• We are intolerant if we do not endorse the behavior and lifestyle choices of others.

You Can Counter the Influence of Cultural Tolerance

In The Beauty of Intolerance, speakers and authors Josh and Sean McDowell provide clarity on today’s cultural view of tolerance, detect its inaccuracies, and offer practical insight on:

• Who created moral truth and its purpose.
• How to live out a biblical view of tolerance to people with whom you disagree.
• How to lead your kids and family to understand God’s gift of sexual morality, why moral truth is universal, and how to experience love and acceptance that isn’t based on performance.

Says Dr. Tony Evans, senior pastor at Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship: “Josh and Sean McDowell have given us an extremely timely and relevant, biblically sound work on the issue of tolerance, one of the most critical issues we face today. This book is a strategic read for all who wish to save the next generation from drowning in the sea of cultural relativity now engulfing them.”

Raise up a generation to embrace a values system based on God and His Word so they can live as “children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which [they] shine like stars in the universe” ( niv).

The Beauty of Intolerance is perhaps the most needed book in the library of lives around the world second only to the Bible," says author and evangelist Frank Shelton. “Unlike some teaching, preaching, and cults, all roads do not lead to heaven but actually to hell.

“We can coexist on Earth, but apart from the shed blood of Christ and repentance of sin, we will not coexist in heaven. Josh and Sean have penned a game-changer because they didn't change the Word. Yes, intolerance is beautiful but misleading the masses is beyond ugly. May millions read this book and fall in love with The Book [Bible]."
