Can We Talk?: The Art of Relationship Building by Rob Green
About: Can We Talk?
Another conversation ends in frustration or even anger. You want to communicate well and to grow deeper in your relationships, but either you can't seem to find the words or always seem to come up with the wrong ones. How can you develop greater intimacy if you can't seem to have a productive conversation?
Far more than simply offering techniques for learning to communicate effectively, Rob Green offers wisdom for getting to the heart of your communication struggles. By helping you see how your desires motivate your speech, he draws you back to the gospel of Jesus Christ for freedom from old patterns of relating and for a heart that moves toward others in love.
About the Author
Author Rob Green, M.Div., is the pastor of Counseling and Seminary Ministries at Faith Church (Lafayette, Indiana). He is also a member of the council board of the Biblical Counseling Coalition as well as instructor and counselor at Faith Biblical Counseling.
Rob Green’s influences as a gospel-centered author are varied. He explains, “I have been greatly influenced by the man who encouraged me to stay in youth group when I was sixteen years old, by the discipleship of my pastor during my college years, and by the rank and file of heavenly citizens who have pursued Jesus despite trial, tribulation, suffering, persecution, or even success.”
Green wasn’t always a pastor and author; he has a B.S. in engineering physics from Ohio State University and after college wrote computer programs to process credit cards. After feeling a call to the ministry he entered seminary, eventually earning a M.Div. and a Ph.D. from Baptist Bible Seminary.
Writing, an extension of Rob Green’s biblical counseling and discipleship ministry, provides him a chance to “bring glory to God and to positively impact and encourage people to love Jesus and follow him all the days of their life.”
Rob Green and his wife Stephanie have three children. They enjoy hiking in the mountains out West, shooting guns, going on intense, activity-filled vacations, and serving in their local church together.
