Words that Cut: Learning to Take Criticism in Light of the Gospel: How do you react to criticism? Do you pout or feel humiliated? Do you play down your error and try to shift the blame? Or do you seek to defend yourself, boasting about your “good deeds” in order to prove the criticism wrong? What difference does the cross of Christ make when we are being criticised? Words that Cut: Learning to Take Criticism in Light of the Gospel, by Alfred Poirier, examines how to give and take criticism as a follower of Jesus Christ. In this booklet, Rev. Poirier gives practical, biblical reflections on our response to criticism in light of what Jesus did for us on the cross. The booklet is based on Rev. Poirier’s excellent article, The Cross & Criticism.
