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.

The book is marked by courage, vulnerability, integrity, respect, variety, and scholarship. It is a delight to read and a joy to ponder.
