Christian Caregiving: A Way of Life
By Kenneth C. Haugk
Kenneth Haugk is a pastor and clinical psychologist. In his book he first describes what makes Christian caregiving distinctive and then explains how that distinctive caregiving can become a way of life.

Christinan Caregiving then describes why Christians might be afraid to trust themselves in caregiving. He then explains for each fear how God empowers us for our participation in care giving.

This book also gives some ways that you can initiate spiritual communication. By learning the art of listening we can then use Christian tools to help us explain forgiveness, spiritual wholeness, servant hood, prayer, and evangelism.

This book is a must read for anyone who would like to show God’s love and mercy to others in a natural way.

Encouragement: The Key to Caring
by Dr. Larry Crabb & Dr. Dan Allender
PROBLEM: You don’t know how to encourage others or help them with their problems.

In “Encouragement: The Key to Caring” Drs. Crabb and Allender first examine why true encouragement often doesn’t take place: this is because people are just relating from the surface layers of their lives. Or, they are not trying to help others with the motivation of love. This book teaches you how to have a proper love motivation for encouragement. With this motivation in place, you can then properly minister God’s love and truth, to the fears and hurts in the lives of others.

The final section of this book deals with practical aspects of encouraging others. Topics covered include: finding opportunities to encourage, principles of successful encouraging, and techniques for encouraging. The final chapter presents some ideas on how you local church can become an encouraging fellowship. All this and more is presented in this book, which will help you be a deeply encouraging friend and an encourager to others in the church.
