Pepperdine’s Straus Institute for Dispute Resolution and Herbert and Elinor Nootbaar Institute on Law, Religion, and Ethics cohosted a lunchtime discussion with John O. Haley, William R. Orthwein distinguished professor of law at Washington University, and author and consultant Greg Stone, on the topic of "Resolving Conflict and Restorative Justice: God’s Part in all This,” on January 27 at the School of Law.
Inviting students to join in on the discussion about secular and Judeo-Christian approaches to resolving conflict, Haley and Stone also spoke about healing victims and offenders. Their discussion on ethical dilemmas examined how to serve without enabling, how to instruct without belittling, and how to forgive without excusing.

He is the author of the recent book Taming the Wolf, which combines contemporary conflict resolution concepts with the peacemaking legacy of St. Francis.
