The Peacemaker: A Biblical Guide to Resolving Personal Conflict
This book is one of the most practical and insightful books that I have ever read. In it author, Ken Sande, comprehensively applies the teachings of the Bible to an important area of need in all our lives — dealing with conflict.
The book begins with the foundational premise that every conflict really ought to be seen as an opportunity to bring glory to God! Once we make that mental adjustment, we are then taught how to apply the teachings of Scripture, precept by precept and step-by-step, toward the goal of true Christian restoration.
This book provides answers to a whole host of difficult questions touching our relationships with the Lord and with one another. Among them, “What does true, biblical confession of sin look like?”; “How do I get the log out of my own eye before I seek to help my brother?” “When should I overlook an offense and when should I go to my brother to address his sin?” This is a book we have used in a small group bible study to great profit, and one I truly think we ought to use again and again!
