"If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone." --Romans 12:18. Conflict happens. It's a painful reality of life in a fallen world. But we don't need to be content with broken relationships--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 conflict--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.
