    Great resource

    Humans have always had to deal with conflict. This conflict may be on the job, at home, with friends or family members. Conflict is a part of life, and we need to have a clue how to handle conflict when it arises.

    In the book Resolving Everyday Conflict by Ken Sande and Kevin Johnson, the reader can learn about conflict and how to handle it in a practical, easy to understand way. There are four questions that are answered by the "Four G's" to ask yourself during times of conflict. I liked the examples of conflict given throughout the book to make application of the ways to handle conflict.

    This book would be a nice addition for your personal library or church library because anyone can benefit from it. I can see it would be particularly helpful to those in leadership positions.

    The narrator, Maurice England, did a nice job reading the text, and I found his voice easy to hear and follow.

    Thank you to the christianaudio Reviewers Program for providing this audio book to me for my honest review.

    "Peace is worth our greatest effort." Kevin Johnson w

    "Peace is worth our greatest effort."

    Kevin Johnson writes clearly and to the point. He tells us why we should always work to resolve conflict, reconcile, and to do it for the glory of God. Using scripture, he emphasizes key points to make you realize what you may be doing wrong that is starting conflict, and how to improve your relationship with anyone that you have conflict with. 

    Some of my favorite points that Johnson helps you to understand better: Glorify God. Get the Log Out. Generally Restore. Go and Be Reconciled. Johnson reminded me that you can change your heart and what is in other's hearts; it's a simple thing, but sometimes forgotten... it's PRAYER.

    Biblical principles are utilized to underline what it means when you forgive someone or are forgiven yourself. I truly loved his commentary on what he calls "The 4 Promises of Forgiveness." I never realized that there are so many emotional things happening inside when you tell someone else "I forgive you!"

    However, the ideal that will stick with me and aid me the most is "The 7 A's of Apologies" found in chapter 5. There are so many actions that should be carried out with an apology. It's definitely not enough just to mumble the words "I'm sorry" like a toddler can, but to be able to admit specifically why you're apologizing, tell how you're going to alter your behavior, accept the consequences, and more. (Every time you apologize.)

    This is an excellent book that I believe any Christian can benefit from. Also, if you're into listening to books, the audio version is done in excellent quality.
