    “Reactivity” by Paul David Tripp is a great read for improving human relationships, whether online or in person. While the book appears to target more online relationships, the principles are also applicable to in-person relationships.

    Around 170 pages, some of the points made include:

    – What should be the norm in our social media discussions and responses.
    – Understand the situation before you jump in and respond.
    – What sin is and does to us.
    – Grace can keep us from using truth to disrespect others.
    – What responding to others in grace means.
    – Living for our self-glory instead of for God’s glory hurts our ability to love others and treat them with respect.
    – Various ways selfishness negatively affects us and our interactions with others.
    – Who God is should change the way we interact with and treat others.
    – Values to have that can help to get along better with others.
    – Suggestions for how to treat others with dignity.

    Good read, easy to understand, good balance of spiritual and practical insights, a great title that challenges and encourages the reader to consider how to have better relationships. Recommended. I was given a review copy by Crossway in exchange for a fair review and appreciate the opportunity.
