A brief note to inform as to why I posted Peacemaking Women by Judy Dabler and Tara Barthel as the featured review for this week. Basically, it's a wonderful book - a more comprehensive book, in some ways, than its big brother, The Peacemaker by Ken Sande. But you will benefit equally from either one.

I decided to read Peacemaking Women for a research paper that I'm writing on interpersonal relationships and spiritual growth in Christian organizations. Another book co-written by a woman that I'm using for this paper is the unfortunately out-of-print Theory R Management by Wayne Alderson and his daughter, Nancy Alderson McDonnell. Incidentally, R.C. Sproul was Wayne Alderson's biographer. You've got to be a pretty special fellow for Sproul to write your life story. If the story of conflict and transformation in a Pennsylvania steel factory with some World War II advance action intrigues you, pick up Stronger Than Steel: the Wayne Alderson Story.
