Gary Thomas – When to Walk Away


Your life’s calling is too important to let toxic people take it away. In When to Walk Away, Gary Thomas – best-selling author of Sacred Marriage – draws from biblical and modern stories to equip you with practical insights to handle toxic 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 frequently 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 by investing in reliable people. It’s only when we learn to say no to bad patterns that we can say yes to the good work God has planned for us.

Best-selling author of Sacred Marriage, Gary Thomas, looks at biblical examples from the lives of Jesus, Paul, and Nehemiah. Drawing from years serving as a pastor, Thomas shares modern stories and practical examples for dealing with the toxic people in our lives. Each chapter includes insightful takeaways that you can apply right away. You’ll discover how to:

Learn the difference between difficult people and toxic people

Find refuge in God when you feel under attack

Discern when to walk away from a toxic situation

Keep a tender heart even in unhealthy relationships

Grow your inner strength and invest in reliable people

We can’t let others steal our joy or our mission. It’s time to strengthen our defense, learn to set healthy boundaries, and focus on our God-given purpose. It’s time to know When to Walk Away.
