Dr. Gib Allen and his wife, Tamie

Dr. Gib Allen joins David Capes on “The Stone Chapel” to discuss his new book The Moses Way: A Pastor-Directed Model to Address Conflict (2020).  “Gib” is a friend and patron of the Lanier Theological Library and has pastored churches for nearly 40 years in Arkansas and Texas.  Not long after beginning his ministry, he discovered that his seminary education had taught him little to nothing about how to deal with conflict in the church.  Over time he talked with leaders, read good books and has come up with an approach any pastor or church leader can follow in order to address conflict redemptively in the church. He does this with a careful reading of how Moses dealt with conflict with the children of Israel on the journey to the Promised Land. Whether you are a pastor or interested layperson, the chances are good your church has faced, is facing or will face conflict serious enough to rock the foundations (21 minutes).
