Item Description...
Overview
People don't like Christians. Christians are often seen as narrow-minded, exclusionary, or pushy instead of being seen as representatives of a loving God. It's easy to think that the actions of others are causing the problem, but are you aware of how much your neighbors and friends are forming their opinions of Jesus by watching you?

This book will help you determine if you're hurting God's cause without realizing it, and how to become part of the solution instead. Damage Control takes an honest look at what?s wrong--and what's right--about Christianity today. It offers specific ideas for making your faith attractive to those around you.

Jesus started a global revolution, then left us as ambassadors to carry on his mission. Damage Control shows how to engage in spiritual disciplines and peaceful practices so you can represent Christ for who he really is.

In The Author's Own Words...

I’m a former magazine editor (Campus Life, Leadership Journal, Christian Herald) and editorial director (David C. Cook, Focus on the Family) who has written ten books and coauthored 35 others. My works have twice been honored by the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association with Gold Medallion awards, while another was named Christian Book of the Year.

I’ve had the privilege to travel widely overseas, especially during my seven years as a vice president at International Bible Society (now Biblica). My favorite part of the globe to visit is Africa.

My bachelor’s degree was earned at Christian Life College (Chicago) and my master of arts in journalism at Syracuse University. My wife and I live in Colorado Springs, Colorado; we’re the proud parents of three and the grandparents of eleven.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Good Read For All Believers  May 15, 2006
Dean Merrill's book is a wonderful reminder of not only who we are but a sometimes sobering tale of how badly we reflect Christ from time to time. Through several stories, a few of them rather powerful, and thoughtful biblical application he makes the case for being the right kinds of ambassadors for Christ. The final section is where the argument turns into corrective and will be of great benefit to pastors and concerned Christians alike.

One of the primary struggles within the evangelical church today is relevance. While this book does not expressly tackle that issue, it will provide a great deal to think over when it comes to addressing our world in a winsome and effective way. I recommend this book not only for pastors and leaders, but for all Christians who would like to reflect on Christ's church reaching culture.
 
Every non-Christian could benefit from Christians reading this book.  May 5, 2006
If the American church followed the widsom and insight contained in "Damage Control, How to stop making Jesus look bad," I think unbelievers would be even more compelled to accept Christ. In this book, Dean Merrill provides us with a candid look at how those from the outside of Christendom may see those of us on the inside. It's time someone stepped up to the plate and preached this message to the choir. I was challenged, encouraged, and convicted while reading "Damage Control." If you are serious about reaching the lost, this is a must read. I enthusiastically recommend this book.
 
An intriguing interpretation of societal perspectives which so frequently render Christ in poor view   Apr 7, 2006
No one does more damage to the message and image of Christianity than Christians themselves. Damage Control: How To Stop Making Jesus Look Bad by Dean Merrill offers an intriguing interpretation of societal perspectives which so frequently render Christ in poor view and how Christians might assist as His earthly ambassadors to improve His image and redeem His position with respect to the broader world. Introducing the reader to a remarkable understanding of what might be the cause of people's interpretive and illusive vision of Christ, Damage Control reminds its readers that each individual can validly make a difference in the minds of others and their often negative view. Damage Control is very strongly recommended to all Christians, regardless of their denominational affiliation, who witness the pains of noting the declining popularity of their faith and Savior, and wishing to help as much as possible to remedy that loss of stature and status through becoming a positive influence.
