Overview

In The Peacemaker, Ken Sande presents practical biblical guidance for conflict resolution that takes you beyond resolving conflicts to true, life-changing reconciliation with family, 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, author of Knowing God

"Of people alive and writing today, I know of no more reliable guide for peacemaking in church and family than Ken Sande."-John Piper, pastor, Bethlehem Baptist Church

"The Peacemaker is a practical and faithful primer for how obedience to God's Word can change deadlock into restoration in families, churches, workplaces, neighborhoods, and even prisons."-Charles W. Colson, founder, Prison Fellowship

"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, executive editor, Christianity Today

"The Peacemaker is a rich source of practical, biblical guidance for resolving every type of conflict."-Tony Evans, pastor, Oakcliff Bible Church.

"It is the sort of book that will remind every Christian reader that God, before all, is in the business of reconciliation, and that the servant is not greater than the master."-D. James Kennedy, pastor, Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church

"The best guidebook I've ever seen on how Christians should resolve conflicts. Every pastor ought to read this book and share it with the leaders of the church. It ought to be a textbook in every Bible school and seminary."-Warren Wiersbe, author of Real Peace

    Ever been hurt...ever wanted to hurt someone?

    This book made peace real for me. I can not recommend it highly enough. If you have unhealed hurts, read this slowly, prayerfully and let the Prince of Peace reign in you.

    WARNING: Do Not Use in Domestic Abuse Situations

    I had been in verbally and mentally abusive marriage for many years, and as the abuse continued to escalate, I came to my church for help. They recommended Peacemaker mediation in which this book was required reading and the mediation focused on this book's principles. Through the counseling, my husband was empowered and began seriously threatening my life because of it. Matters became much worse for me with this counseling. If you are in an abusive situation, do NOT agree to go to any counseling with the Peacemaker book as it's focus. I fared much better at the local abuse crisis center. At least they took me seriously and offered protection.
    There is an accurate review of this book at the A Cry For Justice website by Jeff Crippen. Type Peacemaker in the search.

    Read it again and again!

    I can't say enough about this book. I haven't been in any major conflicts, but boy has it changed every part of my life. I relate to people so much better now. If you are a human being and you have any other contact with other humans - read this book! It is amazing how little attention we pay to relationships when we talk about the life of a Christian. The way that we interact with others is an essential part of the Christian walk, which makes Ken Sande's book amazing! It's really life-changing. I've seen God honored through these transformations in my life since the first day I picked up the book to read it. It's really that good. It's worth reading even if you don't like to read much. I read little by little because it's hard for me to read, but the applications this book has is incredible. Plus, it is DOUSED with Scripture.

    Transformations

    I have only read two chapters of this book, but my relationships have been transformed already. I can see how Christ interacted with people and how I am so far from that. I deal with conflict horribly, but I can see how Ken's concepts can apply directly to my life. I don't know how anyone could try to develop healthy relationships without this book. It does NOT deny that conflict occurs, but encourages us to step into conflict with a healthy attitude. GREAT BOOK!

    Restored My Marriage

    This book is an incredible resource and a must-read for every married couple, parent, or anyone struggling with conflict. In my own case - applying the principles learned through Peacemakers was the key ingredient to a complete reconciliation with my ex-wife. In fact, we were remarried after over years of separation and divorce. We give God all credit for the healing in our marriage, but we also recognize that Peacemakers provided the tools and knowledge for the two of us to reconcile. Thank you, Ken Sande, for the marvelous work you are doing.
