From the Back Cover
Conflict and disagreement are unavoidable.
Peace can at times feel unattainable.
But in every relationship, unity and harmony are possible.
For more than twenty-five years, The Peacemaker has helped individuals from
all walks of life resolve personal conflicts by applying timeless biblical truths.
Ken Sande's practical and proven methods are designed to bring about more
than simply a cease-fire. They will lead you toward true, life-changing
reconciliation with family members, coworkers, and fellow believers.
"'Blessed are the peacemakers,' said Jesus. With crystal clarity this manual lays before us the wisdom that leads humble souls into that blessing."--J. I. Packer
"Of people alive and writing today, I know of no more reliable guide for peacemaking in church and family than Ken Sande."--John Piper
"A practical and faithful primer for how obedience to God's Word can change deadlock into restoration."--Charles W. Colson
"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

We hadn't even got to the 3rd chapter of the book and a meeting was called where we had a formal "peacemaking" trial. Our pastor set out a plan for us and rules etc and long hidden things were brought to the surface and we were able to walk out re-united. And we haven't even finished the book! Thank you!!!
but work as well even for your ministry.
I originally read this book in a college conflict resolution class four years ago. This book changed the way I viewed conflict, and shown a light on an area of my life that I was still living more as a carnal man, rather than a believer.
After this class, I have undertaken to read this book through every year from front to back, and have also referenced it many times throughout the year. I have also purchased the Small Group Study through the Peacemaker website and have gone through it with a group. Out of all the book that I recommend to Christians, this by far the one that stands out.
In my marriage, the principles of this book are the most referred too. My wife and I have both grown to love the biblical principles of peace, that are laid out so clearly in the Peacemaker.
About the Principles taught in this book:
The principles taught in the peacemaker are very biblical. You can confirm that through studying through the book, or by checking the references of the men of God who commend it on the books covers.
This book is one that works primarily on you, it is not a fix for your opponents. It is hard, but worth every effort.
Nothing shines more like a Christian who deals with conflict differently. "Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be known as the sons of God" Matt. 5:9
Truly looking at myself , I gained a great deal
