Your life’s calling is too important to let toxic people take it away. In When to Walk Away, Gary Thomas – bestselling author of Sacred Marriage – draws from biblical and modern stories to equip you with practical insights to dealing with difficult people in your life and live true to your God-given purpose.

As Christians, we often feel the guilt and responsibility of meeting the needs of unhealthy people in our lives. Whether a sibling, parent, spouse, coworker, or friend, toxic people always seek to frustrate our life’s calling. While you’re seeking first God’s kingdom, they’re seeking first to distract your focus and delay your work.

Instead of attempting the impossible task of mollifying toxic people, it’s time we dedicate our energy to the only worthwhile effort: completing the work God has given us. It’s only when we learn to say no to bad patterns can we say yes to the good God has planned for us.
