Format: Print on Demand (Paperback)
Dr. Newberger has uncovered a startling oversight in regard to conflict and peacemaking: we have somehow overlooked the model of reconciliation God himself has given and illustrated for us in Christ. If there was ever a need for Christlikeness, it is in how we pursue peace and reconciliation. Love is the key, Christ is the model, and Dr. Newberger is our guide in exploring fascinating and immediately applicable discoveries to the healing of conflicts every church experiences. While church after church stumbles along in destructive and painful conflict, ignoring or misapplying the Scriptures to their situation, the solution has been right under our nose the whole time: making peace with others the way God makes peace with us. Brilliant!

This is a fantastic book. Dr. Newberger has made the leap from lessons formed in the fundamental laws in Judeo-Christian religion to today's contemporary conflicts. He outlines a general approach to all conflicts be they between countries, neighbors, coworkers, family members or spouses. Dr. Newberger builds on the basic precepts in biblical law and then effortlessly applies these lessons. He is a master storyteller, incorporating examples of conflicts from recent headlines right into his methodology. My wife and I find his approach unique in that it builds upon spirituality as a key tenet when understanding and resolving conflict. We have applied Dr. Newberger's approach to conflicts within our own family and marriage and have seen fantastic results, especially in how connected we feel when we forgive and make peace. This book is essential for all Ph.D counselors and social work counselors who counsel those in conflict.

Conflict in the church, while almost inevitable, does not have to mean a hopeless struggle that results in a Pyrrhic victory for one side or the other. There is a biblical way to resolve conflict that honors both God and his church. Ken Newberger's book does an admirable job of setting forth the biblical way of peacemaking. Here is a clear exposition of what the Bible teaches on this crucial issue, illuminated by much research and years of experience in conflict resolution. It is thoroughly biblical, eminently practical, and certainly needed in the church today.

He insightfully shows how to apply the standard set by God himself, illustrating that standard with numerous real life examples. In writing this book, Ken Newberger has performed a tremendous service for us all. The sections on apology and forgiveness alone are worth the price of the book.

Format: Paperback
Dr. Newberger's book captures the Biblical essence of conflict resolution by painting the big picture of how God Himself specifically makes peace with humans. This approach seems so obvious and yet, to my knowledge, has not appeared in print until now. Walking the reader through the process, Ken clarifies each step with clear explanations and powerful illustrations. This is a handbook for everyone, a resource to reach for in a marriage, a parental setting, a business deal gone sour, a labor dispute, or a church conflict. But an unintended use may prove to be its greatest-- explaining the heart of the gospel!
