We long for a home that is a haven from a world riddled by conflict, but the reality for too many families--even Christian families--is different. For them the home is a place of skirmishes between family members, where personal desires collide and peace cannot be found.
In Peacemaking for Families, Ken Sande and Tom Raabe show that family conflict is inevitable and normal, a legacy of our birth into sin. Using Scripture and stories from family life, the authors offer hope and help.
Whether the issues involve husband and wife, parent and child, or siblings, your family can learn God's principles for achieving peaceful resolutions to those conflicts we naturally fall into. You will appreciate these practical, easy-to-remember truths:
- The seven A's of confession
- The four promises of forgiveness
- Knowing when and how to confront
- Learning to listen
- The PAUSE principle of negotiation
- What to do when the other party is in denial
- How to know when it is time to seek outside help
