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.

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!

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.

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.
