Publishers Description Conflict simply is. Believing that we can somehow avoid it can only damage our relationships, but when we learn to integrate our needs and wants with those of others, it can be a catalyst in our relationships for deeper loving care. Dr. David Augsburger's Caring Enough to Confront is a classic in Christian peacemaking. It teaches the reader how to build trust, cope with blame and prejudice, and be honest about anger and frustration. Dr. Augsburger challenges readers to keep in mind that the important issue is not what the conflict is about, but instead how the conflict is handled. He offers a biblically based model for dealing with conflict to teach Christians how to confront with compassion and resolve issues in a healthy and healing way. Whether in family, church or work relationships, Caring Enough to Confront gives readers the tools to make the most of every conflict.

Reviews - What do customers think about Caring Enough To Confront (Updated)?
caring enough to confront May 29, 2010
This is a great book on confrontation. It has great ideas on dealing with poople who differ with you. However the "Conflict Behavior Survey" in the Appendix I is very confusing. The explanation for interpreting your scores is not clear. I find little help in understanding the purpose. I would appreciate an clearer explanation of how to interpret. I wonder if anyone else had this problem. Thanks
A MUST Read Feb 3, 2010
This book is so helpful in growing in one's communication skills as the author helps you to understand confronting as a loving response to one's relationships and self...I believe the term he uses is Carefront. Very thoughtful and well written.
Excellent, easy-to-read advice Nov 6, 2009
An excellent book on the importance of caring confrontation (what the author calls "care-fronting"). It is written in a very easy-to-read style and offers very practical advice for anyone interested in learning how to grow and strengthen relationships.

quoted from the 1st chapter to give you an idea what this book is about ~I Love You. If I love you I must tell you the truth. I want your love. I want your truth. Love me enough to tell me the truth.
This book really helps those of us at times that have had to confront and have felt guilty for doing so.
Caring and confronting together provide the balance of Love and Power which lead to effective human relationships.
Like anything else there is a time for caring and a time for confronting. Each in it's own time. Care when caring is called for and confront when confrontation is required.
Excellent Book for help in knowing how and when to care-front :)
Free from the guilt of Confrontation Jan 31, 2000
Execllent book! Growing up, I was under the impression that confrontation was a negative thing - that if I confronted a person about an issue then that meant I was a bad person for having poor or hurt feelings. After I read "Caring Enough to Confront" I understood that confrontation could acutally be a positive response to negative behavior. I highly reccommend this book for anyone suffering from the confrontation jitters.
