Surrendering one's self to God is the heart of the Gospel-a supernatural ministry that God commissions every believer to perform. But because we can never share with others what we do not have ourselves, we can only experience true peace once we put God first in our own lives. The rest follows naturally: Being at peace with God, we can be at peace with others-then expand the horizons of our ministry of grace. The authors explain why this is much more than conflict management or outward compliance through the rule of law-and show how to overcome divisive attitudes and behaviors including racism, sexism, elitism and legalism. Blessed Are the Peacemakers shows how we can improve our key relationships and tear down walls between people that keep them from knowing God.
