Product Description

Many Christians see conflict as a dirty word - something wrong to be avoided at all costs. After all, aren't Christians to be peacemakers who strive to maintain unity? But, Lou Priolo reminds us, many other things that the Bible exhorts us to do - including its commands to convict, rebuke, and admonish other Christians - make conflict a necessary part of Christian life.

Lou takes us through the biblical principles of conflict resolution, beginning before conflict even starts. He shows us the prerequisites we must have as we go into conflict, what is at the heart of our conflict, when it is biblical and unbiblical, and how we should respond to it. He also shares practical steps and advice, giving us specific talking points to resolve conflict and journaling exercises to help us grow when it happens. Learn how to "make every effort" to maintain unity - even when that effort involves conflict first!

Publisher's Description

Many Christians see conflict as a dirty word—something wrong to be avoided at all costs. After all, aren’t Christians to be peacemakers who strive to maintain unity? But, as Lou Priolo reminds us, many other things that the Bible exhorts us to do—including its commands to convict, rebuke, and admonish other Christians—make conflict a necessary part of the Christian life. Lou takes us through the biblical principles of conflict resolution, beginning before conflict even starts. He shows us the prerequisites we must have as we go into conflict, what is at the heart of our conflict, when it is biblical and unbiblical, and how we should respond to it. He also shares practical steps and advice, giving us specific talking points to resolve conflict and journaling exercises to help us to grow when it happens. Learn how to “make every effort” to maintain unity—even when that effort involves conflict first!

Editorial Reviews

Conflicts are like forest fires. If you can put them out while they're still small, you can save an enormous amount of time and effort. That's why this book is so valuable: it provides simple, biblically sound, and incredibly effective insights for resolving conflict in its earliest stages, when it still involves only two people. If you learn and practice these principles, you spend more time enjoying the people around you—rather than fighting prolonged relational fires. -- Ken Sande, President, Relational Wisdom 360

Everything Lou writes is helpful, practical and biblical because of his wisdom gained through years of counseling experience and His love for God’s Word. What makes this book unique among books dealing with conflict/peacemaking is how specifically he deals with the details of the heart issues which need to be addressed and the practical steps to be taken. There are numerous valuable diagnostic tools and questions which will be VERY useful for pastors and counselors. His self-deprecating/transparent personal examples are also helpful as Lou shows that he is also engaged in this struggle. -- Jim Newheiser
