Making Judgments Without Being Judgmental: Nurturing a Clear Mind and a Generous Heart

Overview

We have all felt at times that someone was unfairly judging us. Occasionally, we wonder if we have unfairly judged others. Perhaps we've even been accused of doing just that. We know the Bible speaks about making judgments, but what does it mean and how does it apply?

Overview

We have all felt at times that someone was unfairly judging us. Occasionally, we wonder if we have unfairly judged others. Perhaps we've even been accused of doing just that. We know the Bible speaks about making judgments, but what does it mean and how does it apply? Counselor and teacher Terry Cooper helps us distinguish between a faithful discernment of right and wrong, truth and falsehood while avoiding being judgmental. He also helps us better deal with others who are judgmental toward us and with our own self-condemnation.

A wise and practical guide for sorting through the issues and for dealing well with others in situations where conviction and compassion matter.

What People Are Saying

Denis D. Haack
"Listen for a moment: our increasingly pluralistic world is increasingly nasty. Public discourse is contentious, and people of conviction imagine only belligerence will keep their viewpoint from being missed. Sadly, Christians are not exempt. In fact, many non-Christians assume Christianity's irrelevance because no religion worth serious consideration would produce such reactionary, judgmental people. Terry Cooper has it exactly right in Making Judgments Without Being Judgmental: it is possible to disagree without being disagreeable. His thoughtful, clear analysis is bracing and helpful for anyone wanting to respond winsomely instead of merely reacting."
Denis D. Haack, Director, Ransom Fellowship (www.ransomfellowship.org), and visiting instructor in practical theology, Covenant Theological Seminary
James A. Herrick
"This book is brimming with practical wisdom on a topic relevant to everyone--making judgments about others. With precision and clarity Terry Cooper guides readers through a range of crucial issues that affect all of our relationships. Cooper blends extensive research with Christian principles in a remarkably helpful fashion."
James A. Herrick, Guy Vander Jagt Professor of Communication, Hope College
Mark A. Yarhouse
"In this day and age we need a map to navigate the rocky terrain that separates sound judgment from judgmentalism. Terry Cooper is a resourceful and experienced guide, offering us the tools we need by exploring themes of self-confidence, humility, assertiveness and conviction."
Mark A. Yarhouse, Psy.D., licensed clinical psychologist, professor of psychology and director of the Institute for the Study of Sexual Identity, Regent University, and coauthor of Modern Psychopathologies: A Comprehensive Christian Appraisal
