P 96 How to Learn Through Conflict: A Handbook for Leaders in Local Churches


The church has plenty of conflict on its hands - and it often is a cause of frustration and disillusionment. And yet it is part of God's plan that churches are marked by diversity.

This handbook is written with the conviction that conflict cannot be avoided, but that it can become something positive through which all parties can learn. With stories, exercises and practical reflection, it will give you fresh confidence that, whatever the conflict, God is with you there in the thick of it.
