In this student edition of The Peacemaker, Ken Sande and Kevin Johnson show teens, youth leaders, parents, and pastors, how they can apply biblical principles to conflict situations, allowing for forgiveness and reconciliation instead of hatred or violence. With an approachable style that treats teens with respect, this much-needed resource can be used individually or as part of a small group or youth group study.

But we're all 'students' in the deeper sense. The biblical word for it is disciple. And though my student days lay far in the past, this book taught and re-taught me many things essential to living well."--David Powlison, author, Speaking Truth in Love; editor, The Journal of Biblical Counseling
