FROM THE VERTICAL TO THE HORIZONTAL
Empowered to Relate to People God’s Way
By Rose Noland
DESCRIPTION: Developing and maintaining good relationships is difficult in this world, but with the enabling of God, we can succeed! The principles in this book will give you a biblical perspective on how to interact with people God’s way. We cannot correctly relate to others without the empowerment of God, and we must be rightly related to Him through Jesus Christ. As we continually abide in Him, we will see God enable us to love, and relate to, those around us. With God as our provider and our satisfaction, our contented soul can selflessly reach out to others. We can learn how to deal with the pain of challenging relationships. We can be successful in dealing with people and have deeper, more meaningful interactions. The key is to understand that the better our vertical relationship is with God, the better our horizontal relationships with others will be. Through Him we can love the unlovable, forgive the unforgiveable, forbear with difficult people, and enjoy life to the fullest!
In these pages you will read about the author’s struggles and the ways in which God gave her victory. You, too, can learn how to deal with the pain of challenging relationships. You can be successful in dealing with people and have deeper, more meaningful interactions.
“In a time when our culture, and even professional counselors, keep getting it wrong, Rose has captured the biblical essence of having fulfilling relationships—rightly relate to God so you can rightly relate to others. Each chapter gives keen insights into why we don’t do well in relationships. If you can’t get a grip on why you may be struggling, this book is a must read.”
~Pastor Marvin Patrick
“This is an excellent book for anyone who desires to learn how to have better relationships. Rose shares many insights on the how and why of relational difficulties, as well as how to resolve them and live more harmoniously. She stresses throughout that in order to have successful and fulfilling relationships with others, we must first learn how to rightly relate to God. This is a great follow up to Rose’s first book, “Our Knowable God”. I’m looking forward to Rose’s next book.”
