Resolving Conflict in Our Families, Organizations and Communities Conflict happens. It's a painful reality of life in a fallen world. But we don't need to be content with broken relationshipsâ€”conflict resolution is possible. God's intention for us and for the world is for all to live in peace with one another, and Christian peacemakers have an unparalleled opportunity to be true ambassadors of reconciliation.
Rick Love, founder and president of Peace Catalyst International, shares the principles that have guided his peacemaking efforts around the world. Masterfully blending Scripture and personal experience, he provides a biblical framework for how the God of peace seeks restoration for all who experience conflictâ€”in the home and workplace and even across international borders.
With the life of Jesus as the prime example, Love equips and empowers peacemakers of all stripes to integrate evangelical witness with commitment to reconciliation. We can walk in the footsteps of Jesus as catalysts of peace, bringing transformation and hope to a world crying out for healing and forgiveness.
"I couldn't put this book down. It's brilliant and simple at the same time. It is the most practical thing I've seen for being a peacemaker in everyday life for everyday disciples ever. Whether you have a conflict in your family or you're working globally dealing with conflicts, this book is a must-read." â€”Bob Roberts Jr., senior pastor, NorthWood Church, author of Bold as Love
"We wish for it, talk about it, even pray that God will bring it, but few of us really understand the meaning of peace. That's why Peace Catalysts is such an important book. In a straightforward and clear style, Rick Love discusses the theological and practical implications of peace and through stories and examples shows us how to become catalysts for it in our homes and communities. Never shying away from the tough questions, he offers sound wisdom and helpful tools to use for both preventing conflicts and resolving them. This book is an excellent resource for both individuals and groups, and will certainly become a classic." â€”Dale Hanson Bourke, author of The Israeli-Palestinian Conflict
"For years I read about 'the God of peace' and 'the peace of God.' For years I prayed that 'the peace of Christ' might dwell within me, and I celebrated the birth of 'the Prince of peace.' Then I started visiting war zones: first Bosnia, later the Democratic Republic of Congo, now the Holy Land. Peace is no longer a pretty notion somehow associated with divine beings. People I meet are dying for peace, literally. This book provides practical guides for helping to create personal peace, interpersonal peace, social peace and peace as an alternative to war. In my life and ministry, I need this book!" â€”Lynne Hybels, advocate for global engagement, Willow Creek Community Church
