Our ancestors gathered around a fire in a circle, families gather around their kitchen tables in circles, and now we are gathering in circles as communities to solve problems. The practice draws on the ancient Native American tradition of a talking piece. Peacemaking Circles are used in neighborhoods to provide support for those harmed by crime and to decide sentences for those who commit crime, in schools to create positive classroom climates and resolve behavior problems, in the workplace to deal with conflict, and in social services to develop more organic support systems for people struggling to get their lives together. A title in The Little Books of Justice and Peacebuilding Series.

"If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone." —Romans 12:18 Conflict happens. It's a painful reality of life in a fallen world. But we don't need to be content with broken relationships—conflict resolution is possible. God's intention for us and for the world is for all to live in peace with one another, and Christian peacemakers have an unparalleled opportunity to be true ambassadors of reconciliation. Rick Love, founder and president of Peace Catalyst International, shares the principles that have guided his peacemaking efforts around the world. Masterfully blending Scripture and personal experience, he provides a biblical framework for how the God of peace seeks restoration for all who experience conflict—in the home and workplace and even across international borders. With the life of Jesus as the prime example, Love equips and empowers peacemakers of all stripes to integrate evangelical witness with commitment to reconciliation. We can walk in the footsteps of Jesus as catalysts of peace, bringing transformation and hope to a world crying out for healing and forgiveness.

From all corners of the world, both inside cities and in the remote countryside, the cry for "just peace" rings out loud and strong. But, as many will note in this book, the cry for just peace isn't enough, for just peace requires active faith, working hands, and willing hearts.Gathered in this volume are essays written from a wide variety of perspectives, religious traditions, nationalities, and ages (from a sixteen-year-old high school student to an eighty-four-year-old senior professor) that seek to offer insight toward answering one question: How are "just peacemaking," faith formation, and discipleship connected within a twenty-first-century context?
