Jesus said, "Blessed are the peacemakers." But it often seems like conflict and disagreement are unavoidable. Serious, divisive conflict is everywhere--within families, in the church, and out in the world. And it can seem impossible to overcome its negative force in our lives. In The Peacemaker, Ken Sande presents a comprehensive and practical theology for conflict resolution designed to bring about not only a cease-fire but also unity and harmony. Sande takes readers beyond resolving conflicts to true, life-changing reconciliation with family members, coworkers, and fellow believers. Biblically based, The Peacemaker is full of godly wisdom and useful suggestions that are easily applied to any relationship needing reconciliation. Sande's years of experience as an attorney and as president of Peacemaker Ministries will strengthen readers' confidence as they stand in the gap as peacemakers.

James Kennedy, pastor, Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church"The best guidebook I've ever seen on how Christians should resolve conflicts.

"Of the enormous body of literature dealing with conflict resolution and its allied problems, this treatment is the most concrete and helpful I have yet to find."-Vernon Grounds, Denver Seminary"''Blessed are the peacemakers,'' said Jesus. With crystal clarity this manual lays before us the wisdom--the real, solid, biblical, spiritual, personal, pastoral, down-to-earth, heart-searching wisdom--that leads humble souls into that blessing."--J. I. Packer, Regent College"The escalation of conflicts is a mark of life in the 21st century. The culture around us offers scant clues for how we are to cope with this increasingly polarized world. The Peacemaker points us to God''s Word as the source of hope and help. It is a practical and faithful primer for how obedience to God''s Word can change deadlock into restoration in families, churches, workplaces, neighborhoods, and even in prisons."-Charles W. Colson"Biblical peacemaking is about more than avoiding conflict and keeping things placid. Peacemaking issues from the character of God, the Ultimate Peacemaker, the God who was in Christ reconciling the world unto himself. Ken Sande challenges us to act redemptively in a culture of enmity and shows us how to do this in our relationships with one another. A modern classic!"-Timothy George, dean of Beeson Divinity School, executive editor of Christianity Today."The Bible calls Christians to defend the truth. But the Bible also calls Christians to work hard at unity. Ken Sande gives us valuable, practical help in our ''fight for peace'' among Christians in addition to our fight for truth."-Ric Cannada, president, Reformed Theological Seminary"The revised edition of The Peacemaker has made a fine book even better. It provides God''s people with what I consider to be the best guidebook I''ve ever seen on how Christians should resolve conflicts. The material is based on Scripture and keeps the glory of God uppermost. I especially like the authors'' emphasis on the role of the local church in dealing with conflict. Every pastor ought to read this book and share it with the leaders of the church. It ought to be a textbook in every Bible school and seminary."-Warren Wiersbe "The Peacemaker is an awesome and thorough tool of reference on biblical peacemaking and reconciliation that will transform the lives of Christians in the twenty-first century. I believe that if the church were to take advantage of a fraction of the information found in this book, it would be a brighter light to the world as we lead the way to his peace."-Dr. William L. Sheals, Hopewell Missionary Baptist Church, Norcross, Georgia "Many Christians find themselves adrift in a sea of conflict--at work, at church, at home. God''s word has the answers! The Peacemaker helps the believer stop seeing conflicts as obstacles and start seeing them as ''opportunities to glorify God.''"-Peter N. Nanfelt, president, The Christian and Missionary Alliance"A solid, Bible-based guide to process the local church through conflict. Absolutely one of the best books I know of to minimize personal and organizational conflict."-Gary R. Allen, national coordinator, Ministerial Enrichment, Assemblies of God"Ken has done it again on the issue of the church being the institution of peace. The church must step back into being the culture of belief for our society and the culture of faith. Belief and faith give the power for reconciliation and bringing peace between believers."-Ken Hutcherson, senior pastor, Antioch Bible Church"This updated version of a well-respected book should be invaluable to Christian leaders who want to create a culture of peace in their organizations and churches."-Bob Creson, president, Wycliffe U.S.A. "In an age when ''peacebreaking'' or ''peacefaking'' is all too often the wrong response to conflict in the world and the church, a practical, Christ-centered guide to being a peacemaker is always needed.

Extensive Biblical, Practical Guide to Conflict Resolution.
5 stars By MatthewT, Jun 13 2016
An exceptionally biblical, readable, practical, and extensive guide to conflict resolution. 

Sande has written a key book on dispute resolution for Christians. The book includes true stories and experiences of the author from his life as well as examples from his work and ministry in conflict resolution. 

The book is well written, clear, well laid out, and thus very readable.  It also includes helpful appendixes. One of these is a summary and reference to the entire book. Very helpful. Others include question about litigation, and alternative forms of dispute resolution. 

The book is primarily written for Christian relationships, especially because it so heavy reliant on the authority of the Bible. However, many of the principles would be relevant for conflicts with non-Christians. 

The book is highly biblical with extended Scriptural quotations and extensive references throughout. The author doesn't just reference the Bible, he includes it, explains it, and applies it. It is excellent writing. He addresses and examines the implications of key biblical texts about dispute resolution in the church and between Christians. Sande places a significant emphasis on the gospel and its ability to change hearts before behaviour is attempted to be changed. 

This book would help any and every Christian in their personal relationships, work relationships, and ministry relationships. A must read book on conflict resolution.

Powerful principles!
5 stars By Ange, Nov 27 2012
I love this book! It is filled with principles for resolving conflict God's way. It shows that conflict provides opportinities - to glorify God, serve others and grow to be like Christ. It is full of tips and stories to help resolve conflicts and as it is firmly based on the gospel, presents a way of living that honours and glorifies God. 
It has transformed my life and I have seen these principles in action, bringing reconciliation and healing to relationships.
