Alfred Poirier skilfully relates the many valuable leasons that he has learned over many years of Christian Ministry. Leasons learned from both Scripture and personal experience. This is a inciteful, practical and useful read for anyone involved in any form of minsitry, particularly at leadership level.
This read is exceptionally useful for not only assisting to resolve conflict but more importantly at enriching relationships which will great reduce conflicts.

This book will help all pastors resolve conflict. I greatly appreciated the insights and how-to's contained in this book. It makes me want to read The Peacemaker by Ken Sande.
