Edling and Pace write about conflict resolution in light of Biblical principles, practices, and history. Hence, they focus on Biblical conflict resolution, also known as Biblical peacemaking or Christian conciliation, and they connect these practices with the growing field of alternative dispute resolution (ADR). Such peacemaking or conciliation is a preventive law mechanism, uniquely suited to people and organizations within the Christian faith community. With all of this in mind, Edling and Pace, both with Peacemaker Ministries, describe the work of that organization in conducting conciliation in cases of conflict and in training attorneys and others in conciliation principles and practices.
