THE ANATOMY OF PEACE
What if, in our conflicts with others, there is something we want more than solutions? What if, individually and collectively, we systematically misunderstand the causes of our conflicts? And what if, therefore, we unwittingly perpetuate the very problems we think we are trying to solve? These are among the important questions explored in The Anatomy of Peace, an international bestseller that instills hope and inspires reconciliation. Through a moving story of parents who are struggling with their own children and with problems that have come to consume their lives, we learn from once-bitter enemies the way to transform personal, professional, and even global conflicts.
The reflection and discussion questions in this guide can be used to enrich individual and group study of The Anatomy of Peace. Reading, pondering, and discussing the book can help you implement changes in thought patterns, assumptions about situations in your life, or views of yourself and others. The process can be enhanced by reflecting on, writing about, and/or discussing the topic prompts or any other questions or insights you’re interested in.
