About the Book

Why is it so difficult to get along with my family?
Of course, I forgive, but I can’t seem to get past the pain.
I don’t know why I get so angry.
It feels like I'm the only one trying to do what's right!
God seems distant. Does he even care about me?

Do any of these hit close to home? It may surprise you that the underlying cause is often hidden unforgiveness. Our closest relationships, emotional health, and perhaps even our faith may seem to be crumbling around us. It is easy to recognize how stuck we feel, but most have no idea forgiveness is the way forward.

If we're honest, we don’t even know what forgiveness is. We may have a vague idea it has something to do with “forgetting” or “letting go,” but we'd be hard-pressed to come up with a working definition. Worse yet, we have no idea how to practice forgiveness in a way that brings lasting relief.

Forgiveness is not a vague, esoteric concept. It is not a lofty, unattainable ideal. It is simple enough to be understood by anyone, a straightforward process you can learn with practice. Forgiveness can bring real freedom, clearing a path back to peace and joy.
