Item Description...
This instructive, useful book, which can be used as a model for addressing ministries, church systems, and other non-profit organizations in conflict, offers ways of constraining those who act as antagonists and ways of collaborating with opponents.

Publishers Description

In this instructive book, Hugh Halverstadt advocates a Christian vision of shalom for an ethical process of conflict management. He shows how respectfulness, assertiveness, accountability, and a focus on the larger common good should all serve as Christian behavioral standards. The book is ideal for addressing ministries, church systems, and other nonprofit organizations in conflict.

A Standard Handbook for Managing Church Conflict  Apr 21, 2007
The key strength of this book is that it adopts a systems approach in dealing with church conflict, and advocates mobilising community resources in conflict resolution. Bystanders are not passive. They should hold the parties involved accountable in working towards a win/win resolution and to "fight fair". The flow chart also provides an excellent framework, not only to deal with the conflict situation, but also to build on one's conflict management skills through other readings or training. For example, another book by Charles Cosgrove and Dennis Hatfield, entitled "Church Conflict: The Hidden Systems Behind the Fights," provides more insights into the contextual factors in the conflict that would fit neatly into Halverstadt's overall framework. The framework serves as an excellent structure for further development and learning. One weakness of the book actually lies in its theological exposition, especially in the early chapters where the biblical foundation is being explained. The underlying theological perspective does not seem to square with current evangelical theological thinking, even though the author claims to be a Presbyterian. Nevertheless, this is an indispensible book to have for those who wish to read more about this area. I use it over the last four years as a standard text in a Bible college class that I teach. The book is a product of the author's experience in dealing with denomination-wide and church-wide conflicts within the Presbyterian Church (PCUSA) over the years.
Digest This Book and Strengthen Your Ministry!  Feb 15, 2002
First published in 1991, this has become a standard work on understanding church conflict. It is in a different category than Ken Sande's "The Peacemaker" (also an excellent book). Sande writes to equip individual Christians to follow Christ in resolving interpersonal conflicts. Halverstadt, however, addresses the more complex dynamics of congregational conflict. Halverstadt's vision for peaceful churches is based on God's shalom, and he integrates this theology with insights from family systems theory and organizational development. The book is organized according to an in-depth Flow Chart for Managing Church Conflict that presents almost every conceivable conflict scenario and suggests detailed procedures. This is a book of high density, but there is no substitute. It is required reading for anyone who wants to understand congregational conflict.
