“Loving through Conflict” from Christian Faith Publishing author Ash Narayan, JD, MA is a helpful resource for anyone seeking to develop and maintain lasting connections that will persevere through any of life’s challenges.
“Loving through Conflict”: a compelling examination of effective Christian conflict resolution strategies. “Loving through Conflict” is the creation of published author Ash Narayan, JD, MA, a dedicated husband and father of two who earned his BS in Accounting from Valparaiso University, his JD from Loyola Law School of Los Angeles, and his MA in Theology from Concordia University. Pursuing his passion for education, Narayan rededicated himself to Jesus and began studying God’s Word and followed God’s calling to help the poor and marginalized become self-sufficient. Applying his legal and business skills, he cofounded the Gethsemane Project to partner with churches throughout the world in developing sustainable ministries. Over the past fifteen years, they have successfully built sustainable orphanages, schools, and children’s homes in Mexico, Uganda, Sri Lanka, and Haiti, as well as a sustainable ranch and school in Cambodia for victims of human trafficking.
Narayan shares, “Politics, social justice, the COVID-19 pandemic, church ministry, and marriages are just a small sample of the myriad of issues causing division across the world today. Never before are Christians more divided on these issues and others. In addition, an emerging trend that has created tension and division among Christians is centered on ideology. Christianity’s fundamental beliefs and truths are no longer commonly accepted. Movements such as social justice and moral relativism dominate academia and the teaching and culture of the younger generation. These progressive movements are the cause of substantial conflict among Christians who steadfastly proclaim their love for the same God. While conflicts are inevitable and have existed since the Fall, what is troubling is how Christians are managing conflicts.
“Conflicts, if left unresolved, rob us of the joy that healthy relationships bring. While conflict resolution is a laudable goal, many conflicts will be left unresolved. Accordingly, we need to address a different reality. As Christians, we need to learn to live well with each other in and through our conflicts.
“Jesus modeled essential principles such as compassion, kindness, empathy, humility, gentleness, and patience, all of which help us face conflict. More importantly, Jesus is the conduit of God’s overflowing love. Love is relationship glue. When Christians love each other well with commitment and perseverance, they can avoid many of the conflicts illustrated. When any relationship experiences conflict, love can preserve, redefine, and strengthen the relationship, even if the underlying issue that caused the conflict is not resolved. God is all about relationships and wants to teach you how to be Loving through Conflict.”
Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Ash Narayan, JD, MA’s new book takes on key components of conflict that often lead to unresolved arguments that can cause resentment and ultimately failure within relationships.
Narayan offers a clear and articulate study that will encourage and empower readers in their ability to effectively navigate times of strife.
