How to Transform Conflict with Compassion and Grace
Believing that we can somehow avoid conflict only damages our relationships. But when we learn to integrate our needs and wants with those of others, conflict can be a catalyst in our relationships for deeper loving care.
Caring Enough to Confront is a classic in Christian peacemaking. It teaches how to build trust, cope with blame and prejudice, and be honest about anger and frustration. David Augsburger challenges readers to keep in mind that the important issue is not what the conflict is about but how the conflict is handled. He offers a constructive model for dealing with conflict that is guided by the Sermon on the Mount to show Christians how to confront with compassion and resolve issues in a healthy and healing way.
