About this item

How do I handle difficult family members?

What do I do if I can’t control my emotions?

When do I correct others, and when do I hold my tongue?

Too often we are late in realizing that we mishandled a situation, causing both resentment and frustration. But what if you could approach every situation with the mind of Christ? 

Distilled from his decades of experience as a clinical psychologist and a practicing Catholic, Dr. Ray Guarendi, popular radio and TV host, offers here dozens of bite-sized reflections that combine sound spiritual advice with the best of modern psychology.

Dr. Ray will help you address countless daily problems and create a plan of action for your most common troubles. With his trademark frankness and humor, Dr. Ray tackles all the topics that too often bring confusion and heartache, including:

  • What to do when you’re easily offended
  • Common excuses parents make for bad behavior in their children—and themselves
  • The difference between speaking your mind and losing your emotions.
  • The fine line between being a confident evangelist and being a jerk?
  • What you should do when emotions overwhelm you?
  • How to hold your children to high standards without causing resentment
  • The difference between making an excuse and justifying an action
  • How to tell people you’re angry without being nasty about it.
  • What true humility is – and isn’t.

Thinking Like Jesus is more than a self-help book. It will place you firmly into the mindset of a disciple of Christ so you can focus your attention on God and, ultimately, what it will take to spend eternity with Him in heaven.

Excellent!
I read through this book in two days. I almost couldn't put it down. It's full of so much great information. The wide range of topics make it applicable to everyone. I underlined a great many things to come back to later. An excellent read!

Very useful in dealing with everyday situations
This book is down-to-earth and covers what we all encounter every day. Dr. Ray helps to deal with these things by giving direct advice. He sets reasonable expectations and counsels that you can try your best to make things better, and you still may not get the desired result. And it's okay. It is normal. Dr. Ray gives you peace, takes away aggravation, and helps you form new positive behaviors! Thank you, Dr. Ray!

Very enjoyable read with loads of good insights and advice
Dr. Ray is a master at common sense served up with a big dose of humor, humility, and Christian values. His chapter on how to be a better husband, The Marriage Test, had me almost falling out of my chair with laughter, but, again, with an ending that will make you very glad you bought this book. Share with friends and family. I’m buying two more copies as gifts.
