SANTA MONICA, CA — A new book, written by a California lawyer with more than three decades of civil litigation experience, is offering hope and help to Christians caught up in conflict. In Settle It! … And Be Blessed author Tom Gehring explores timeless, biblical principles for conflict resolution that go beyond the laws of the land to operating in God’s wisdom.
In highly-readable, conversational language, Gehring shares personal insights, stories and lessons accumulated over the span of a successful legal career working at the crossroads of conflict, and more than 25 years of Christian living. Examining many of the sorts of conflicts that afflict our contemporary world through the lens of ancient wisdom, Settle It! … And Be Blessed will be of interest to those who find themselves engaged in relational, business, church, and legal conflicts, as well as conflicts of a more personal nature such as habits and addictions.
Gehring believes Christians are called to settle matters quickly. “Quickly, but not hastily,” he explains. “Things that God wants you to do in life, he usually wants you to do quickly.”
“Settling in a timely manner is an important principle,” he adds, “you can’t pursue your passion in the middle of your conflict.”
But “settling” often demands a willingness to sacrifice. “The one that sacrifices nothing learns and discerns nothing,” says Gehring. “You be the peacemaker. You don’t qualify to win it, unless you’ve done everything to settle it.”
