“It is my joy to enthusiastically and wholeheartedly commend re.CLAIM.ing – A Handbook for Developing a Restorative Culture in Your Church by Pete Tackett and Michael Stover. It is a practical handbook helping churches and ministry leaders build a culture of safety, compassion, and mending for those that find themselves at a place of brokenness… “

Randy C. Davis – President & Executive Director, Tennessee Baptist Mission Board
