Peacemaking is the mission of God, so it should also be the vocation of his people. But do we know what it means to be makers of peace? Jon Huckins and Jer Swigart offer a theologically compelling, richly personal, and intensely practical set of tools in Mending the Divides that equip us to join God in the restoration of broken relationships, unjust systems, and global conflicts. These modern-day peacemakers help us understand that peace is not the absence of conflict—peace is when relationships that were once severed have been repaired and restored.

"These modern-day peacemakers help us understand that because peacemaking is the mission of God, it should also be the vocation of his people. Using biblical and current-day illustrations of everyday peacemakers, this book equips disciples of Jesus to move toward conflict and seek the restoration of our relationships, our communities, and our world, offering practical steps to engage in the kingdom-building work of waging peace." -- C. Christopher Smith, Englewood Review of Books
"This is a great book for anyone struggling with any level of conflict, including conflict of how to live as a Christian in North America today. The book will both challenge and inspire. Read it." -- Leonard Klassen, Mennonite Brethren Herald, December 11, 2017
"One of the most challenging tasks within the church in the next few decades will be the work of peace-building and reconciliation, of learning from and loving neighbors who are often very different. Taking the parable of the Good Samaritan as their starting point, Huckins and Swigart have written a practical, hands-on manual that shares their rich experiences working in peace-building across various contexts, from local to global." -- Jenny Yang, Christianity Today, December 13, 2017
"Jon Huckins and Jer Swigart, co-founders of The Global Immersion Project, believe peacemaking practices should be grounded in Jesus teachings. Mending the Divides: Creative Love in a Conflicted World is full of stories, insights, and questions for discussion and shows what it means to live as a true global citizen." -- Sojourners, February 2018
