Mike Emlet on Resisting Gossip

Mike Emlet was my second reader for my doctoral project on Resisting Gossip and was a terrific encouragement throughout the entire process.

Mike is a sharp thinker from whom I've learned more than I can communicate, so I am very encouraged to have received his endorsement:

“In Resisting Gossip experienced pastor Matt Mitchell skillfully tackles one of the most overlooked and destructive sins within the church. Dr. Mitchell’s wise, biblical approach carefully defines gossip (no one excluded here!) and gets to the heart of both the causes and cures of this problem. Full of scriptural insight, practical examples, and thoughtful questions for group discussion, this one-of-a-kind book aims to do nothing less than transform the way we speak to and about one another. Whether you are a perpetrator of gossip or a victim of gossip (invariably both!) you will surely find tangible help and Christ-centered hope in its pages.” – Michael R. Emlet, M.Div., M.D., counselor and faculty member at the Christian Counseling & Educational Foundation (CCEF) and author of CrossTalk: Where Life and Scripture Meet and many counseling articles and booklets including Asperger Syndrome, Angry Children: Understanding and Helping Your Child Regain Control, Help for the Caregiver: Facing the Challenges with Understanding and Strength, and OCD: Freedom for the Obsessive Compulsive
