What if reconciliation is central to the biblical message?
And what if Christians are waking up to the reconciling mission of God?

Reconcile: Conflict Transformation for Ordinary Christians,by international mediator John Paul Lederach and with a foreword by Bill and Lynne Hybels, serves as a guidebook for Christians seeking a scriptural view of reconciliation and practical steps for transforming conflict.

Originally published as The Journey Toward Reconciliation and based on Lederach s work in war zones on five continents, this revised and updated book tells dramatic stories of what works and what doesn t in entrenched conflicts between individuals and groups. Lederach leads readers through stories of conflict and reconciliation in Scripture, using these stories as anchors for peacemaking strategies that Christians can put into practice in families and churches.

Lederach, who has written twenty-two books and whose work has been translated into more than twelve languages, also offers new lenses through which to view conflict, whether congregational conflicts or global terrorism. A new section of resources, created by mediation professionals, professors, and pastors, offers tools for understanding interpersonal, church, and global conflict, worship resources, books and websites for further study, and invitations to action in everyday life.

About the Author:

John Paul Lederach has worked in international reconciliation for more than thirty years. He has developed training in conflict transformation and provided direct mediation and support services for reconciliation efforts in some of the most violently conflicted regions across five continents.
Lederach has consulted with the highest-level government officials and national opposition movements in war-torn settings like Nicaragua, Somalia, Northern Ireland, Colombia, Nepal, and the Philippines.

As professor of international peacebuilding and director of the Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies at the University of Notre Dame, Lederach is the founding director of the Center for Justice and Peacebuilding at Eastern Mennonite University, Harrisonburg, Virginia.

He is the author of twenty-two books and manuals and numerous academic articles and monographs on peace education, conflict transformation, and mediation training. Lederach s books have been translated into more than a dozen languages, and he is in international demand as a lecturer, consultant, and mediation trainer.

Review:

~~"This book truly has the power to change the world. Extended family dispute? Read Reconcile. Neighborhood conflict? Read Reconcile. Church split? Read Reconcile. Countries at war? Honestly, if there were a way to lock up world leaders until they read Reconcile, the world would be a different place."..."Beware: though this book is biblically grounded and thoroughly practical, it is not safe. It will mess with your life." —Lynne and Bill Hybels, cofounders, Willow Creek Community Church, from foreword

"A profoundly moving and inspiring book! John Paul Lederbach’s call to all involved in the ministry of reconciliation "to dream boldly and to act with enthusiastic pragmatism", providing us with the Biblical tools as well as practical guidelines stemming from years’ of experience, merits to be taken seriously by pastors, students, and especially by practitioners in the field. In our Southern African context - as well as in the rest of fractured and divided world – the book will be of great value."—Piet Meiring, emeritus professor of Theology at the University of Pretoria, served on the South African Truth and Reconciliation Commission.
