I have read this book several times, and heard Ken Sande speak at my church. This book presents an excellent, biblical view of how to manage conflict in a way that honors God, in all kinds of situations. I use the strategies at work, with friends, and in my family (I got the "peacemaking for kids" book, too).
The book describes the spiritual aspects of conflict, like Jesus command to "get the log out of our own eye" by admitting our mistakes and asking for forgiveness. It also teaches how to humbly ask God for his help, and to see conflict as an opportunity to honor God.
I cannot recommend a product more highly than this. Please, for the love of God, buy this book!
If you're a Christian and want a Christian perspective, this is good. If you want to develop negotiation or conflict resolution skills and the Christian justification isn't a priority, try Getting To Yes or one of the classic Karrass Negotiating seminars.
Jesus died for all, but even that is not enough to achieve reconciliation for all; some, many, most(?) reject his offer, his free gift. How much more do we need to know when to recognize our Peace Maker efforts are much better spent elsewhere. Some people simple don't want peace, they thrive on the fight; they don't even want total victory. Some don't have any idea what they want and can't even talk about it. Others would be happy with annihilation, but nothing less. If the root of conflict is in a severe personality disorder, say narcissism, the Peace Maker is working the wrong process. Of course writing a book on recognizing when your process is vectored for failure doesn't sell many books.
but work as well even for your ministry.
