Peacemaking... Mar 21, 2001
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.
Excellent, though dated, summary of effective communication. Aug 17, 1998
Confronting can be difficult and awkward. Augsburger uses practical tips to understand how confronting can be the most caring approach. Also offers details on how to communicate more effectively -- and expect others to do so with us.
A superb guide to working anger for Christians Jun 15, 1998
David Augsburger, professor of pastoral care in a Christian seminary, helps Christian people to explore the nature of anger and a range of ways to work with this powerful emotion. He has created a very helpful chart that offers five different ways of moving toward resolution (when the time comes) each offering a range of caring and confronting. They include choosing my way, your way, no way, compromise, or creative effforts to discover our way. Augsburger explores how the Bible encourages both assertiveness and caring and helps the reader to find their own path, blending the two.
