Publisher's Description

Women have a strong desire for relational connections. Relationships between women can be especially enriching, but when conflict arises, they also can be especially damaging. Too many women approach conflict as if they were unbelievers-with gossip, spiteful actions, bitterness, and even hatred.

In Peacemaking Women, Tara Klena Barthel and Judy Dabler offer a meaningful, lasting message to lead women out of conflict to a state of peace where they can live as representatives of Christ to one another and well as unbelievers. With advice that is firmly rooted in Scripture, the authors bring sound, practical help for women who want to know what the Bible says about conflict resolution and how to achieve peace in their relationships with God, self, and others.

Publisher's Weekly

As professional Christian conciliators, Barthel and Dabler have seen individuals struggle with addiction, friendship and sexual sin; they've seen churches on the verge of schism, looming lawsuits and businesses gone awry. Now they apply principles of reconciliation and peace specifically to women because many Christian women today are not at peace. They urge women to become true peacemakers through repentance, faith, and rightful worship of God alone. Readers will find information on resolving conflicts with God first, then others, then themselves. The authors address the areas of marriage, family and the church, as well as conflicts arising from idolatry, suffering, shame, depression and fear. They use the Bible as the authority on resolving conflict, offering broad biblical concepts in place of how-to lists and step-by-step instruction. Each chapter includes questions for reflection and a resource list, and real-life examples appear throughout, including the authors own conflicts in writing the book. It is, however, a long-winded, back-door approach to the subject that seems to struggle with what it really is: a book about conflict resolution or a book about taking that resolution one step further to become proactive, peace-making women. There is plenty of good information about conflict, and a sound biblical foundation, but not enough specifics on how women can live in peace day by day. Copyright 2005 Publishers Weekly

    The book painted a picture of most small churches. The examples were relevant. The solutions were very applicable and worthy of reflection and thought. I found the book to be outlined very well, and easy to read. This is a must read. It presents truth, opportunities for change, for growth and love among each other.

    Tara Barthel succeeds in showing women how peacemaking starts within ourselves, our own hearts and then flows outward into our relationships through the never ending grace of God. This book goes beyond the mere thought of Peacemaking and gives a hands-on, honest application of how we can become Peacemaking Women.

    Because of the hectic world we all live in, most of us are looking for ways to find Peace. She not only clarified the variety of issues that can cause everyday conflict, she outlined necessary steps to correct it... Our choice.I appreciated the set of questions that followed each chapter, helping to guide you in your individual quest to apply the teachings to yourself.I deeply appreciated her vunerability in sharing her own personal issues. It helped me to understand that I wasn't the only one going through that particular conflict.I have been able to not only use this in my own personal life but to help other women develop these skills.It is a book to be read again and again because of its relevancy. I am reading it for the third time and have discovered new teachings. It is a book worth having in a personal library.

    I purchased this book thinking it would be good reading, but found it to be much more. My friends want to borrow the book and I'd rather just buy them a copy of their own as I've found this to be a key resource for working through and handling the conflicts I've had with others. Strong, Biblical, gentle, wise. I highly recommend this to anyone!

Author/Artist Review

Author: Tara Klena Barthel

Submitted: July 09, 2005

    Tell us a little about yourself.  Tara Klena Barthel formerly served as the Director of the Institute for Christian Conciliation, a division of Peacemaker Ministries. As such, she oversaw the delivery of all conciliation services and advanced conciliator training. Currently, she serves her family as a homemaker while regularly mediating, speaking, and writing on biblical peacemaking. Baker Book House Co. published her first book in June 2005: Peacemaking Women—Biblical Hope for Resolving Conflict. Prior to joining the staff of Peacemaker Ministries, Tara worked as an attorney and business consultant in Chicago. Tara, Fred, and their daughter Sophia Grace are members of Rocky Mountain Community Church (PCA). Judy Dabler is the executive director of the Center for Biblical Counseling & Education a ministry of Kirk of the Hills Presbyterian Church (PCA) in St. Louis, and is a mentor and Certified Christian Conciliator™ with the Institute for Christian Conciliation™, a division of Peacemaker® Ministries.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  We wrote it for Christian women who are lonely, hurting, and not at peace. Peacemaking Women offers practical and biblical hope because it systematically applies the peacemaking passages of the Bible to hundreds of real-life conflicts in order to give its readers the help they need to experience real peace with God, others, and within.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  We pray that women will learn how to turn any conflict into an opportunity to build deeper and closer relationships. And we pray that instead of trying to "work harder" in their own strength, women will rest more fully and confidently in the redeeming work of Christ.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  “This book tells the truth. The authors know the struggles of women and they offer hope rooted in God's Word to transform conflict into grace in lives, families, churches, and communities.” Charles W. Colson Prison Fellowship “If I could put one book in the hands of every Christian woman, in addition to the Bible, it would be this one. The book is marked by courage, vulnerability, integrity, respect, variety, and scholarship. It is a delight to read and a joy to ponder. Reading it has been beneficial to me as I am sure it will be to many.” Dr. Laura Mae Gardner Past Vice-President, Wycliffe International “Peacemaking Women is not just for women and is not just about peacemaking.” Bryan Chapell Covenant Seminary “This bold and compelling book by two wise Christian mediators and peacemakers is a tour de force in offering a pathway for rebuilding broken relationships.” Dan B. Allender Ph.D President, Mars Hill Graduate School Author, The Wounded Heart and To Be Told

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  Peacemaking Women is unique because it combines rigorously biblical, scripturally sound counsel with practical and engaging illustrations in order to make the principles clear and applicable to real-life. Questions for reflection, scriptural prayers, and recommended resources at the end of each chapter help you to actually apply the material and make the book ideal for personal reflection and use in a small- group study.
