The Spirit and Art of Conflict Transformation is an overview of the theology, theory, and practice of conflict transformation…For me, the work of conflict transformation is not the work of putting Band-Aids on the wounds of conflict, or responding to conflict like a fire fighter. This work is about a way of life and the transformation of our culture to a culture of justpeace. The book is divided into two parts: the first about preparing ourselves, and the second about how we engage others in conflict transformation. (Excerpt)
