Publisher's Description

Jesus said, "Blessed are the peacemakers." But it often seems like conflict and disagreement are unavoidable. Serious, divisive conflict is everywhere-within families, in the church, and out in the world. And it can seem impossible to overcome its negative force in our lives.
In The Peacemaker, Ken Sande presents a comprehensive and practical theology for conflict resolution designed to bring about not only a cease-fire but also unity and harmony. Sande takes readers beyond resolving conflicts to true, life-changing reconciliation with family members, coworkers, and fellow believers.
Biblically based, The Peacemaker is full of godly wisdom and useful suggestions that are easily applied to any relationship needing reconciliation. Sande's years of experience as an attorney and as president of Peacemaker Ministries will strengthen readers' confidence as they stand in the gap as peacemakers.

Author Bio

Attorney Ken Sande is president of Peacemaker Ministries. 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. Ken conducts seminars throughout the United States on biblical conflict resolution.

    This Book Does NOT Encourage Remaining in Abusive Situations
    August 23, 2014

    Meets Expectations: 5
    In this review, I want to also respond to the Persistent Widow. It is unfortunate this person had a bad experience, but her experience must have been from her and/or her church misapplying the principles in this book. This book does NOT encourage people to remain in an abusive situation. In fact, it encourages the use of the legal system where abuse is present. If the Persistent Widow was in a physically abusive situation (and we know that physical abuse is against the law) she should have removed herself and had her husband processed through the legal system, while still adhering to the biblical principles of forgiveness and the possibility of reconciliation, which this book encourages. I just wanted to make this point clear so that others are not misled by what the Bible teaches, which is the foundation for this book.

    I found the book to be extremely informative, biblically sound, and useful for teaching/reminding how much reconciliation is the heart of God. But as with anything that is righteous, it must also be applied wisely.

    Sometimes a bit too technical but a good resource for Deacons and Pastors who need to help people through conflicts. I found it hard to stay with but I learned a lot that I can use in the future.

    WARNING: Not Safe for Counseling Domestic Abuse
    January 24, 2013
    The Persistent Widow
    I had been in verbally and mentally abusive marriage for many years, and as the abuse continued to escalate, I came to my church for help. They recommended Peacemaker mediation in which this book was required reading and the mediation focused on this book's principles. Through the counseling, my husband was empowered and began seriously threatening my life because of it. Matters became much worse for me with this counseling. If you are in an abusive situation, do NOT agree to go to any counseling with the Peacemaker book as it's focus. I fared much better at the local abuse crisis center. At least they took me seriously and offered protection. Some relationships are not safe.

    For an accurate review of this book in domestic violence settings, internet search these key words...Peacemaker Crippen.

    I apprecitated the depth of the scripture connection to a subject that effects everyone. The author is intent on finding solutions to conflict in any situation.
