Church conflict that is not handled well can take years to overcome. But when conflict is managed well, it can be a time of healthy introspection for a congregation. I thought this book did a great job of giving some practical ways of dealing with conflict. It was both deep and practical at the same time.

Okay - this is a school book and I must admit I can barely read most of my assigned books because they are soooo boring. This book is NOT that book - I was captivated from start to finish. My biggest problem was coming up with my own ideas for the paper I had to write so I would not plagerize - RECOMMEND

In State Of Becoming: From Contention To Collaboration by Norma Cook Everist (Professor of Church Administration and Educational Ministry at Wartburg Theological Seminary in Dubuque, Iowa) is a seminal and thoroughly "reader friendly" study on the issues and dealings of conflict within church. Informatively engaging readers from first page to last, In State Of Becoming deftly covers commonly controversial issues affecting the church and effective, practical, and tactics with which to avoid, ameliorate, or positively assist in resolving disputative issues for the betterment of the churches larger interests. In State Of Becoming is very highly recommended to the clergy and laity of the Christian congregation for the coordination and progression of the church through its many likely and inevitable controversies.

Seems to be more of the same, for every church has conflict. Everyone seems to have their own ideas, but what does God want? He is the answer to everything. Amen
