Dr. Larry Crabb has a long history of contributing in practical ways to the emotional and spiritual life of Christians and congregations for decades. Encouragement: The key To Caring, written with Dr. Dan Allender, is another example of his fine work and quality contribution.
Caring for people well requires the ability to encourage, but for many the practical carrying out of that interpersonal work is complicated by personalities and uncertainty about what will really accomplish the encouragement we hope for. This book offers insights and strategies that can help leaders with the basics of recognizing the need, and implementing the practices that will care for their people well.

Encouragement. It's more than a compliment or a pat on the back. According to Drs. Larry Crabb and Dan Allender, it is the most basic form of counseling -- a skill that can be mastered by laypeople as well as counselors. What must we know in order to fulfill the biblical exhortation to 'encourage one another'? Encouragement: The Key to Caring tells you. Part one deals with understanding encouragement, and part two explores the process of encouragement, including such practical how-tos as - developing a careful selection of encouraging words - cultivating active listening skills - using biblical fellowship to move beyond superficial smiles and shallow greetings - recognizing subtle opportunities for encouragement -- Without the encouragement of a caring community, biblical truth taught in church tends to just thicken people's defense layers. But authenticity, freedom, and greater love for God and others are the fruit of encouragement, and evidence of the tremendous power God invests in individuals and churches who practice it.
