A Biblical Guide to Resolving Personal Conflict
A Scripture-directed guide to conflict resolution, offering hope for peace in almost every conflict situation a person might encounter in relationships, work, or ministry.
About the author:
Ken Sande is president of Peacemaker Ministries and author of the bestselling The Peacemaker. He regularly conciliates business, family, and church disputes and serves as a consultant to pastors and attorneys as they work to resolve conflicts outside the courtroom. Sande conducts seminars on biblical conflict resolution and lives in Montana.
"Of the enormous body of literature dealing with conflict resolution and its allied problems, this treatment is the most concrete and helpful I have yet to find."--Vernon Grounds, Denver Seminary
"'Blessed are the peacemakers,' said Jesus. With crystal clarity this manual lays before us the wisdom--the real, solid, biblical, spiritual, personal, pastoral, down-to-earth, heart-searching wisdom--that leads humble souls into that blessing.12"--J. I. Packer, Regent College
"This biblical guide to resolving personal conflict is very practical and well-written. It can help you resolve conflicts with family, children, and even a former spouse."--Parenting Solo News (June-August 1999)
"The Peacemaker is not a new book (although its current, second edition is new), but it's one that has been taken from my bookshelf time and time again over the years. It's one that has been a great asset to me, not only in working in the area of apologetics and related counseling, but in my role and leadership of my own church family. It's a work that goes well beyond helpfulness and practicality because of its biblical framework. It's a volume that needs wider exposure, that needs to be read and digested, that needs to be applied. . . . The book is flavored with helpful and easy-to-remember guidelines. . . . From minor disagreements to major conflicts that have escalated into legal circles, Sande has most all the bases covered. I dare say this is the definitive work for the Christian providing solid biblical answers and actions on the topic of conflict resolution. It is a book not only for church leaders and apologists, but for every Christian. It is one not just for a bookshelf, but to be employed to the glory of God."--Personal Freedom Outreach (Spring 1999)

Like most biblically-sound books, this one is convicting enough that it took a while to work through. Ken Sande objectively presents the truths of Scripture while probing heart issues and thought patterns that lead to conflict--then provides Scriptural truth and principles for hope and change. This is a must for anyone who experiences conflict in relationships (!).

Book was shipped promptly, thank you!
Have begun reading it, and have profited from it in my own life immediately, and have used it already with the people in my church, and with those I counsel. It was well written, and loaded with Scripture that the Spirit is using. Thank you for such a good resource, I hope I will use it to glorify my God and King.
