Jesus walked away from toxic people, and you should too. In this six-session video Bible study, bestselling author Gary Thomas draws on Jesus’ example to show how the best course of action for us to take with some relationships is to walk away . . . or let the other person walk away. In the Gospels, we read that when Jesus spoke a hard truth, sometimes the other person chose to walk away. Other times, the person asked Jesus to leave–and he complied. There were also times when people begged Jesus to stay, but he walked away so he could remain completely focused on the mission God had for him. Most of us have run across toxic individuals who drain us of our joy and peace–people who resent the grace we share and will never change. However, as Gary will show in this study, we don’t have to pour our time and energy into these people. Instead, we can follow Jesus’ example to walk away from toxic people and walk toward healthy relationships that will encourage us, strengthen us, and build us up. And as we do, it frees us to focus completely on the purpose that God has established for our lives. The When to Walk Away Study Guide includes teaching notes, discussion questions, Bible exploration, and personal study and reflection materials for in-between sessions. Sessions include: Follow Jesus’ Example Recognize Toxic People Build a Good Offense Create a Good Defense Speak the Truth Align with Christ Designed for use with the When to Walk Away Video Study (9780310110361), sold separately.

Deal Breakers

When to Work On a Relationship and When to Walk Away

Relationships are hard work, but how hard should they be? When do you know you are struggling too hard? This is a book about emotionally unhealthy men--the ones who make you question, "Is it him or is it me? I tell him how I feel, but he says I'm overreacting or needy or it's all my fault." This book is about getting out of "relationship purgatory," where the present is unfulfilling and the future is the only thing you can hope for--but there is no magic future. In business, a deal breaker is the nonnegotiable term that, if not agreed to, means the deal is off. But in relationships, identifying your deal breaker can be more promising, as it holds out the possibility of helping you to understand where the relationship has gone wrong, what needs to be done to make it better, and when to walk away.--From publisher description.

Then, suddenly, on what should have been one of the happiest days of her life, everything she worked for is taken away in a brief, tumultuous moment. In the hospital and forced to face the possibility that nothing will ever be the same again, Maggie must confront the unthinkable. First there is her fiancé, Chip, who wallows in self-pity while simultaneously expecting to be forgiven. Then, there's her sister Kit, who shows up after pulling a three-year vanishing act. Finally, there's Ian, her physical therapist, the one the nurses said was too tough for her. Ian, who won't let her give in to her pity, and who sees her like no one has seen her before.
