Don't avoid conflict.
Use it to build better relationships.
Conflict happens. Believing that we can somehow avoid it only damages our relationships. But when we learn to integrate our needs and wants with those of others, conflict can be a catalyst to deeper loving care.
In Caring Enough to Confront, author and counseling professor David Augsburger shows how, in any conflict, the important issue is not what it is about but how it is handled. He offers a constructive model for dealing with conflict that is guided by the Sermon on the Mount to show us how we can confront with compassion and resolve issues in a healthy and healing way. With his expert guidance, you'll learn how to build trust, cope with blame and prejudice, and be honest about anger and frustration so that you can make the most of every conflict--whether in family, church, or work relationships.
David Augsburger is the author of more than twenty books on pastoral counseling, marriage, conflict, and human relations. He is a professor of pastoral counseling at Fuller Theological Seminary and has also taught at seminaries in Chicago, Indiana, and Pennsylvania. For over a decade, he served as radio spokesperson for the Mennonite Churches, and he has written feature articles that have appeared in more than one hundred different periodicals. An ordained minister of the Mennonite Church and a diplomate of the American Association of Pastoral Counselors, Augsburger leads workshops internationally.
