Author Ken Sande is the founder of Peacemaker Ministries which was founded in 1982 by a group of pastors, lawyers, and business people who wanted to encourage and assist Christians to respond to conflict biblically. The book discusses conflict resolution principles that God has given through Scripture.

'Conflict always provides an opportunity to glorify God...'

This book has had good reviews.

A must-read book for anyone interested in negotiation and the Christian perspective. ( )
  JRandolphT | Mar 20, 2009 |
Full of illustrations, scripture, and practical application, The Peacemaker offers the four "G's" of interpersonal reconciliation: Glorify God; Get the long out of your eye; Gently restore; Go and be reconciled. Sande's principles and applications are generally deeply rooted in both scripture and practical experience. However, Sande also enjoys dabbling in prooftexts, false analogies, and ill-reasoned arguments. Sande’s approach to the contemporary church is often reactionary and his use of scripture reductionistic. In all, Sande provides good principles for resolving personal conflict; to access these jewels, however, one must sift through a good deal of distracting material. C- ( )

Michael Comments:
In the Beatitudes (Matt 5:9) says 'Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called sons of God.' This is one of my favorite scriptures it is loving challenge to strive for peaceful relationships. In return you will have peace in your soul. I really benefited from this book. It has very good tips on how to strive to be a peacemaker. In life, we find ourselves in situations sometimes where peace seems no where in sight. Well, even in the worst of situations, how we respond can & will make a difference in terms of creating harmony & peaces vs chaos. Personally, when peace doesn't exist in my relationships whether with friends, co-workers, or family I feel conflict just eats away at me. Well, there's good news, you can bring peace to any relationship. Read this book, it has good tips on how to bring that peace to your relationships. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0801064856, Paperback)

Jesus said, "Blessed are the peacemakers." But it often seems like conflict and disagreement are unavoidable. Serious, divisive conflict is everywhere-within families, in the church, and out in the world. And it can seem impossible to overcome its negative force in our lives.
In The Peacemaker, Ken Sande presents a comprehensive and practical theology for conflict resolution designed to bring about not only a cease-fire but also unity and harmony. Sande takes readers beyond resolving conflicts to true, life-changing reconciliation with family members, coworkers, and fellow believers.
Biblically based, The Peacemaker is full of godly wisdom and useful suggestions that are easily applied to any relationship needing reconciliation. Sande's years of experience as an attorney and as president of Peacemaker Ministries will strengthen readers' confidence as they stand in the gap as peacemakers.
