Same concepts as The Peacemaker, with less detail,
This review is from: Peacemaking for Families (Focus on the Family) (Paperback)
I borrowed this book from the library, expecting it to be filled with practical applications of Ken Sande's original "The Peacemaker" resource. I was disappointed to see that it contains the key concepts from the original book, with lesser detail, and only brief applications to marriage and children. If what you are looking for is a synopsis of "The Peacemaker" specifically directed at the area of family conflict, then it is a good read. However, if you are looking to apply the conflict resolution methods more broadly, and desire a more in-depth explanation, then read the original. It goes into the concepts of conflict resolution (slippery slope, the 4 G's, 7 A's to confession, PAUSE) in greater detail and the reflection questions are thoughtful and pointed.
