The church in Africa needs to know how to resolve conflicts. The challenges are daunting. Tribalism. Politics. Different cultural values. Once we forget who God is, it’s easy to descend into quarreling and backbiting.
We know that God hates division – his intention for us is to preserve unity and harmony within the body. Proverbs 6:19 tells us that “a person who sows discord in a family” is detestable to the Lord. Since Scripture always judges culture and its practices, Scripture must be our guide as we deal with the conflicts that arise from our differences.
Conflict Resolution in the Church shows us what the Bible has to teach us about different types of conflict and how to deal with them. Authors Morrison and Mwalw’a take the reader to the root of conflict in church or religious organization settings, encouraging leaders to minster in a godly and biblical manner.
As you follow God’s guidance, you can help bring peace to your churches and denominations, and learn to resolve even the most difficult conflicts and challenges.
