Sue Edwards and Kelley Mathews
Review By: Joye Baker
Personal attacks, difficult people, and conflict are inevitable in ministry. Whether you volunteer a few hours a week or work on full time staff, you won’t be the exception! But men and women perceive and process conflict differently. Finally, a book by women who understand the unique characteristics of how women do conflict. This book will be helpful for both men and women as they serve together in ministry. Failure to deal with conflict successfully often comes from misunderstandings and gender differences as well as personality issues. This practical, comprehensive guide book will help you identify different ways women wound and how to disarm, love, and make peace with them. The final chapter offers men specific ways to negotiate conflict with and among women they work with and serve. Leading Women Who Wound will prepare you to thrive in conflict as you learn effective ways to lovingly respond to women who wound.
