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 know many people who should read this book, and I hope they do! There's too much conflict in God's House that should never be. We are all one in Christ and should put our human tendancies and biterness aside and live more like Him. Churches today are shamed by the conflict and bitterness that occurs toward members and pastors, as seen by Christians and Non-Christians alike. It drives people further from the fellowship with God and each other than could help them grow in their spiritual journey.
We humans need to learn to let go, and let God. We as a church body need to learn to put our trust in God and follow our scripture and believe that God will take care of his people. At a point when the devil is more active than ever in the church, this book is right on time!
I reccomend reading this book if you have experienced church conflict, currently experiencing church conflict, or hven't experienced church conflict, but want to prevent it before it begins!
