Shelves: favorites I purchased my first copy of The Peacemaker off a discount shelf. Since then, I have purchased and given away many copies of this wonderful book. It is the best resource I own on resolving conflict biblically AND successfully. After 30 years in full-time ministry, it is still on my Top Reads.

The strength of The Peacemaker is that it avoids the all-too-common trend of presenting humanistic principles of psychology dressed up in religious garb for Christian readers. It issues a call to Christians to live by grace and confidently follow the clear principles God has given us in the New Testament.
The biblical principles are presented clearly and simply. Every Christian would benefit from reading this book. Twenty years from now, its content will be just as fresh and relevant as the day it was first published, because it presents the timeless principles of Scripture. This book came highly recommended to me years ago and I finally got around to reading it.
It has very good advice for how to handle interpersonal conflicts with others. There are excellent scriptural reminders that it is important to resolve conflict. Tips on how to approach a difficult conversation with whom you are at odds or how to control body motion, etc. However, if you read the book too "religiously" it can make it seem like every time you disagree with another person on any matter at all i.
And maybe some people do need this so I went ahead and gave the book 4 stars instead of the 3 that I originally leaned toward. However, ye olde average Christian, I think, could read this and want to start practicing "resolution" all over the place and begin to take things too far. I have to give a word of caution that this book is a tool for healthy interaction but not a guide to how to perceive everything in light of our day-to-day disagreements and personal preferences.
Take heed, Reader, least you fall into the temptation of thinking that everything about everything constantly needs to be discussed. Will we live in this world peacefully with all? Or, at least, not all of the time. It requires a lot of thoughtful prayer sometimes to know which is which.
So long as this is remembered by the reader, I could recommend the read.
