Caring Enough to Confront: How to Understand and Express Your Deepest Feelings Toward Others
Review Date: 3/25/2007
Helpful Score: 2


(From the back cover)

Is conflict natural? Normal? Good? Bad?

Author David Augsbuger says, "Conflict simply IS! It can turn into painful or disastrous ends, but it doesn't need to. How we work through our differences, to a large extent, determines our whole life pattern".... "Speaking the truth in love - or 'truthing it in love,' as Paul originally phrased it - sums up the Christlike response to conflict."

Discussing trust, anger, change, prejudice, blame, guilt, loyalty and conscience, the author describes a life-style for Christians who care enough to risk confronting others when differences become important. Especially for Christians who care deeply about relationships - adults, youth, pastors, couples.

(From the dust-jacket)

Was Jesus really married to Mary Magdelene? Did they actually have children who intermarried with the French royal family? Has the church been hiding the truth for centuries?

In his best-selling novel, "The Dav Vinci Code", Dan Brown blurs the lines between history and fiction, leaving readers wondering, 'Could this really be true?' By distorting the truth, Brown implies that Christianity is based on a lie.

Well-known theologian and Bible teacher Erwin W. Lutzer examines the "facts" behind the fiction and provides clear and authoritative answers to the conclusion surrounding the life of Jesus and the Christian faith. Whether or not you have read Brown's novel, you will gain a new understanding of the issues presented and the historical basis of early christianity.

Patterson gets away from the Alex Cross & Womens' Murder Club series in this standalone thriller. Easy to pick up & read - very exciting. My wife, my sister & I all loved it!

Once again Jordan delivers a masterpiece in the 9th book of his epic, "The Wheel of Time". Book 9 sees Mat, Thom & Juilin seeking to escape the Seanchan-occupied city of Ebou Dar, while Rand has to juggle repressing Seanchan invaders while hunting down renegade Ashamen.

For those who don't know, Jordan's writing style is very similar to that of Tolkein. He crafts deep plots & richly detailed environments throughout his books. I highly recommend this series to anyone who loved Tolkein, or to anyone interested in fantasy. One area in which Jordan surpasses Tolkein (and I know there are many who would lynch me just for saying that!) is in his descriptions of battles. I seldom feel like I don't know what is going on in the heat of an action packed sequence.

If you're new to Jordan, then you really should start with book one of The Wheel of Time, which is titled "The Eye of The World". The series really is one epic story broken down into volumes which must be read in order.
