Overview

Turn church conflict into an opportunity for grace.

Every church will experience conflicts. If properly approached, church conflicts can be used for spiritual growth for both individuals and entire churches. Redeeming church conflicts--making something glorious out of something painful--provides evidence to a watching world that the gospel is real and powerful.

In this hope-filled and practical book, two church conflict resolution experts take you through the Acts 15 model of approaching conflict in order to provide a clear, godly way forward into redemptive reconciliation.

"I pray that you will study this book carefully and apply its principles in your church with the love and power of Christ. In doing so you can redeem church conflict, turning it into an opportunity for growth, worship, and kingdom expansion."--Ken Sande, president of Peacemaker Ministries; author of The Peacemaker

"Church conflict hurts, divides, and besmirches the name of Christ. This volume does more than lament the problem. It digs deeply into the experience of the New Testament church to discover a model of forgiveness and redemption that can help the witness of the church to shine once again."--Timothy George, founding dean of Beeson Divinity School at Samford University; general editor of the Reformation Commentary on Scripture

"Tara and David's guiding concept of 'responding redemptively' deeply resonates with me. I'm encouraged and equipped, as I believe you will be, by their practical, scriptural wisdom, applicable to any church conflict."--Bob Kellemen, executive director of the Biblical Counseling Coalition; author of Equipping Counselors for Your Church

Tara Klena Barthel is a former attorney and director of the Institute for Christian Conciliation, a division of Peacemaker Ministries. She is an instructor and Certified Christian Conciliator with Peacemaker Ministries, a women's retreat speaker, and the author of The Peacemaker women's study Living the Gospel in Relationships.

David V. Edling is a former attorney and director at Peacemaker Ministries. He has taught at several seminaries and served his country with distinction in both the US Navy and US Coast Guard officer corps. He serves in the private practice of Christian conciliation through his church's reconciliation ministry.
