3.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, though dated, summary of effective communication.
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A superb guide to working anger for Christians, 15 Jun 1998
By A Customer
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Compassion and Christianity, 15 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: CARING ENOUGH TO CONFRONT (Paperback)
When I first read Marshall Rosenberg's "Nonviolent Communication" I thought it would be great to have a Christian take on this stuff. Augsburger offers that with this book. It is rooted largely in the epistles but also in his own experience. This book is highly readable and includes intriguing interpretations of some well-known scriptures. Getting to grips with being 'caring enough to confront' in the way Augsburger describes could have a huge impact on any church that takes it seriously.

This review is from: CARING ENOUGH TO CONFRONT (Paperback)
I have started reading this book and find it fascinating. For someone who is conflict adverse it is teaching me that conflict is not to be avoided.
