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

    This book is an excellent resource for anyone wanting to grow deeper in her relationships with God, others, and self. I was personally ministered to by the final section-Conflicts Within. There is hope and help in the Gospel for our broken relationships. Barthel and Dabler do an excellent job pointing to Christ while being honest about their own failings and offering practical solutions for our small and big conflicts.

    This is and excellent resource so far. I am only up to chapter three so far but this resource is greatly Biblical, and gospel-centered. So far the best thing I have read on conflict. It also has amazing application questions that grow and stretch you which is a good thing while being rooted in the good news of the gospel message. There are also a vast list of additional resources at the end of each chapter for additional helpful info. This is good stuff!

    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.

    I bought this book because I am always trying to say and do the right thing to help others. I seen it as a good book for everyone else,( you know when you hear a message and it's always for someone else). This book has brought me to my knees alot asking for forgiveness.I have alot to learn as a peacemaker. I have shared this with my sister, she is a leader in a women's bible study and believes this would be a great study.This is a book for all people.It will make you take that second look in the mirror at yourself.I had to ask myself am I a peacemaker?Thank youSandie

    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.
