Practicing Affirmation

God-Centered Praise of Those Who Are Not God

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

It happens in marriages, parent-child relationships, friendships, workplaces, and churches: Communication falters, friendships wane, teenagers withdraw, marriages fail, and bitter rifts sever once-strong ties. Christian communities are no exception. Why do so many of our relationships suffer from alienation, indifference, and even hostility?  
Author Sam Crabtree believes that often at the heart of these breakdowns is a lack of affirmation. He observes in Scripture that God grants mercy to those who refresh others, and in life that people tend to be influenced by those who praise them. Crabtree shows how a robust “God-centered affirmation ratio” refreshes others and honors God.

Practicing Affirmation sounds a call to recognize and affirm the character of Christ in others. When done well, affirmation does not fuel pride in the person, but refreshes them and honors God. All who are discouraged in relationships will find wisdom and practical insight in this book. 

Customer Reviews

Read It!

A wonderful book and one I will be looking at for many years to come I hope. Sam does a wonderful job showing how through our affirmations and commending others when we see Christlikeness characteristics in them, they get refreshed, we get blessed, and God is glorified. Sam's writing style was easy to read and his use of illustrations were a joy to think upon. Let me put into practice what I learned from the book:

Though this book you can get a wonderful view of Jesus Christ in the life of Sam Crabtree.

Great read. What are waiting for? Buy it today!
