Product Description

Conflict abounds in the church of Jesus Christ. Reconciliation within the body, however, will not happen with the right "method" or "set of principles." In Making Peace, readers are challenged to place their church and all of its dissension under the Lordship of Jesus Christ. Making Peace is a "why" book, not a "how-to" book. The lordship of Jesus Christ, not method, should be the object and subject of your search for answers. The promise of Scripture is that God will allow nothing into your life that you are not able to bear through faith in Him. Whatever conflict or crisis your church may now be facing, God will provide a way out or a way through for your good and His glory.

    I was excited to see the book I was looking for offered in an ebook format. I have an ereader & I enjoy the versatility and freedom of not having to pack multiple books when I travel. I anticipated being able to use all of the traditional features of my ereader as I read my book from your website (highlighting, note making, bookmarks, etc). It wasn't until after my purchase that I discovered I had to download your ebook app in order to read my book! At first I didn't care. However, I purchased this book for a class & was unable to use the functions I needed for studying & note taking. Big disappointment! I will not be able to purchase ebooks from your website anymore because of this. If I can't treat my ebook like a traditional book, it's really of no value to me. I will go back to purchasing from other mainstream online retailers even though my ministry school purchases through your website.

    A subject that has not been addressed in seminaries for years. We have learned how to conduct church and worship God, but lacking one important aspect of loving God: being ministers of reconciliation. Where 2 people gather; there will be conflict among them. Why not learn how to deal with conflict and gain the blessings the Lord intended through reconciliation ? I may not agree with every scripture that is referenced in this book, but I agree with about 85% (because of my Bible knowledge or lack of). When you start reading the book, you just know that Jim has been to your' church! Spooky! Some church denominations are using this material to deal with troubled churches and I am glad ours did...

    This is one of those one in a million Biblically based books that should be read by all...This is powerful yet humbling, simple yet convicting. God wants to reconcile all of his creations to himself and to each other and this book reminds us to do the very thing which breaks bondage in our churches and in our lives...reconciliation. I called myself a good Christian but aftering reading this book I realize I am aiding the enemy. No more!
