A Godsend - I was wrong on a lot of levels. Aug 27, 2008
My heart was truly broken for years because of church conflict. I knew there was something I wasn't understanding. How can people who love God be such at polar odds. God so used this ministry to help troubleshoot where my local church was way off. "In all thy getting - get an understanding." I thought knowing certain scriptures were enough; but there was such WRONG thinking and WRONG responses, misapplication and wrong justification. I also saw what I did and did not do to help create an environment for conflict - THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Amazing! Oct 14, 2006
This book is amazing! It will challenge you to grow. It will open your eyes to the underlying causes of conflict and struggle within the church. It is practical and full of wisdom and application. Heck, I don't even like reading, but I couldn't put this book down!
