Help! I’m In a Conflict by Ernie Baker
A small book helping people who are caught up in unresolved conflict situations.
How does the gospel impact relationships? How does our relationship with Christ intersect relationship tensions? What is the origin of conflict? What is going on in my heart that leads to my struggles with gentleness or lack of kindness or intolerance of others? What is going on in my heart that leads to lack of patience and irritability? What does conflict do to relationships?
Help! I’m In a Conflict addresses all of these questions and offers practical steps toward addressing them in your life.
This mini-book is written for anyone who is feeling tensions in relationships. These general, gospel-saturated principles help the reader apply biblical thinking to resolving conflict. In particular, Ephesians 4:1-3, in light of the context of the book of Ephesians, is applied to having healthy relationships and healing of tensions in relationships.
It also explores what is going on in our hearts that makes the gentleness and kindness commanded in this passage feel so unnatural. This mini-book is a real life look at the hurts that come during relational conflict, saturated with the confidence that biblical principles work to bring healing.
