I loved the opening sections of the book. A great "theology" of conflict. However, the rest of the book couldn't keep my attention. But this will be a great resource to refer to throughout pastoral ministry.

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.

A helpful reminder of the pastor's task (and that of all Christians) of being a peacemaker. He makes some good points, and I recommend this alongside The Peacemaker by Ken Sande for everyone in ministry.

Poirier gives the big picture by talking about who we are as people in conflict, then gets practical by talking about peacemaking and persons, peacemaking and problems, and assisted peacemaking. As expected, this book is directed at Pastors and how to be a peacemaking in the church.

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.

An argument for why and how Christian ministers should be working to see reconciliation in the lives of church members. Overstates his case at times, but some good practical points in an often overlooked area.
