  • Forgiveness After Trauma


    Susannah Griffith wishes she had spent less time thinking about forgiveness. But as a Christian minister, a biblical scholar, and a survivor of abuse, she has learned a lot about it.

    In Forgiveness after Trauma, Griffith explores what the Bible says–and doesn’t say–about the biblical call to forgive. She helps readers understand this command in ways that are healing and restorative, framing it within broader concerns around lament, anger, accountability, release and rebirth, and reconciliation.

    The result is what Griffith calls “trauma-informed forgiveness,” which takes seriously God’s forgiveness of sinners while centering survivors of abuse and aiding their healing. This view also empowers those who have been harmed in other ways by abuses of power and justice in religious institutions.

    Readers will resonate with Griffith’s astute biblical analysis and personal reflection, which point to God’s love–a love that never includes abuse and strives for justice for the vulnerable.

  • Forgive : Why Should I And How Can I


    Pastor and New York Times bestselling author Timothy Keller outlines the reasons why forgiveness has to be a central part of everyone’s lives.

    Forgiving anyone in a meaningful way is one of the hardest things a person has to do. If you do not, resentment and vengeance begin to consume you. It is nearly impossible to move past transgression without forgiveness, but few people have the resources and the tools to forgive others fully and move on with their lives. Forgiveness is an essential skill, a moral imperative, and a religious belief that cuts right to the core of what it means to be human. In Forgive, Timothy Keller shows readers why it is so important and how to do it, explaining in detail the steps you need to take in order to move on without sacrificing justice or your humanity.

  • No Apology Needed


    Nathan R. Byrd was inspired to write No Apology Needed: Learning to Forgive as God Forgives during Yom Kippur, the Jewish Day of Atonement and forgiveness, in 2012. As he began to research the Jewish perspective of the holiday, he realized that neither Adam nor Eve ever apologized to God for their sin, yet they were forgiven immediately.
    Byrd offers a new perspective on the concept of forgiveness, with the goal of transforming lives and communities. Exploring the Jewish roots for the Christian faith, he suggests that the practice of Yom Kippur and Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, can offer Christians a rhythm for forgiveness that will have a positive impact on their whole life.
    By learning to forgive as God does, without needing any apology from those who have wronged us, we can unlock the keys to healing and healthy relationships. Looking at ancient biblical passages in a new light, Byrd reveals what we have been missing about the teachings of Jesus and the character of our God, as seen in the stories of Adam and Eve, Joseph and his brothers, and King Saul and David. In doing so, Byrd offers incredible insights into how we view relationships and the necessity of adopting a posture of forgiveness, regardless of the circumstances.

  • Forgiveness : Finding Peace Through Letting Go


    If your enemies are starving, feed them some bread; if they are thirsty, give them water to drink. Proverbs 24:17 (CEB) There is nothing more crippling than holding on to anger. Anger, more than any other emotion, has the power to consume all aspects of our lives, distort our sense of purpose, and destroy our relationship with God. In the passionate and life-changing book Forgiveness: Finding Peace Though Letting Go, bestselling author Adam Hamilton brings the same insight that he applied in the bestseller “Why?” to the challenge of forgiveness. Hamilton argues that revelation comes when we realize that forgiveness is a gift we give ourselves rather than to someone else. He also contends that only when we learn to forgive others and ourselves can we truly receive forgiveness from God. “Adam Hamilton not only reminds us about the importance of reconnecting the broken pieces of our lives, but shows how the process of grace and forgiveness is possibly our most complete picture of God.” –Shane Stanford, author of Making Life Matter: Embracing the Joy in the Everyday “The heartbeat of the gospel is grace. With practical insight, Hamilton makes grace understandable–both for seeking and for granting forgiveness. I highly recommend this book.” –Melody Carlson, author of Healing Waters: A Bible Study on Forgiveness, Grace, and Second Chances “Adam Hamilton’s book offers clear guidance for believers struggling with the practical application of our biblical imperative to forgive. It is a must-read for both Christian counselors and every person who has something or someone to forgive.” –Jennifer Cisney Ellers, author of The First 48 Hours: Spiritual Caregivers as First Responders “Deeply rooted in the Bible’s testimony about God’s extravagant mercy, this fine little book explores the Christian call to practice both repentance and forgiveness in the image of God. Straightforward and practical, Hamilton vividly sketches the habits of the heart that discipleship requires in our daily relationships with spouses and intimate life partners, family members, friends and strangers.” –Patricia Beattie Jung, Professor of Christian Ethics, Saint Paul School of Theology

  • Awesome Journey : Lifes Pilgrimage


    Drawing on a lifetime of Christian pilgrimage, David Adam reflects on biblical encounters with the divine and offers profound insights – on grief and glory, emptiness and fulfilment; repentance and forgiveness; loving and being loved – that will transform the way we live, and the way we relate to God, here and now. For example, God’s question to Adam, ‘Where are you?’ is relevant to us all; Abraham’s long journey of hearing and obeying (and learning the art of having no agenda) is ours too; Jacob’s great discovery – that heaven is found on earth and earth is raised to heaven – helps us become aware that we often already possess what we think we’re searching for; Moses’ desert experiences of grief and glory encourage us that we journey forward to the Promised Land, while Elijah’s powerlessness reminds us that God often calls us out of darkness and weakness, for we may need stillness to hear him. Written by a best-selling author – and distinguished spiritual director – with a proven track record. Inspires in us – through Bible passages, story, poetry and meditation – a sense of awe for the journey we are on and the courage to live life in abundance. The understanding that God is ‘as pervasive and perceptible as the atmosphere in which we are bathed’ (Teilhard de Chardin) comes through in all David’s writing, and his confidence and delight in the nearness of God is surely one of the reasons his books are so popular.

  • Forgiveness : A Lenten Study


    Forgiving others and humbly asking for forgiveness are central disciplines for all Christian believers. Lent, a time to reflect on our Christian journey, is an appropriate time to deepen our understanding and practice of forgiveness. Marjorie J. Thompson, author of the best-selling book Soul Feast, takes a close look at our understanding of forgiveness in this encouraging study. In six brief chapters, Thompson addresses such questions as the following:
    Is forgiveness a Christian duty under all circumstances? Or are there situations when Christians do not need to forgive?
    Is forgiveness a matter between individuals, or is it meaningful only in the context of communities?
    Is forgiving the best route to healing for the injured?
    How do we get past emotional barriers to real forgiveness?

    Using biblical examples and real-life situations, Thompson illustrates each chapter’s theme in an informative and engaging way. A study guide is also included at the back of the book that is appropriate for either individual reflection or group discussion. With clarity, insight, and sensitivity, this book is the perfect resource for examining both our ability to forgive and our own need for forgiveness.

  • Radical Forgiveness : Gods Call To Unconditional Love


    Are you really sure you understand God’s viewpoint about forgiveness and mercy?

    If Christianity is to be a compelling and relevant voice in the twenty-first century, it needs a fresh message-not a new innovation or novel interpretation, but a return to our roots. If Christianity is not about forgiveness, it’s about nothing at all.

    In this book readers will be confronted with the stark reality of how deeply we need to reach within to really show Christlike forgiveness and mercy to those to whom we may feel least inclined to offer forgiveness or mercy. The author’s primary motive in writing this book is to help recover the true beauty of Christianity as found in forgiveness.

    This book begins with the Holocaust as it explores what forgiveness means-and how far it should go-in the real world of murder, rape, child abuse, genocide, and other atrocities. It pushes the reader beyond the usual biblical exposition of the topic of forgiveness and challenges their thinking by juxtaposing absolutely bottom-line kinds of examples with the simple question: What would you do?

Break through these feelings of disappointment, anger and bitterness to find true freedom.There is nobody on the planet who has not suffered to some degree.

Why?RT Kendall has written this book to answer tough questions like these, covering three reasons why we need to forgive God and release Him from the blame we put on Him when we feel He has betrayed us by allowing bad things to happen in our lives and the lives of others.

  • I Forgrace You


    Most of us are familiar with the golden rule: “Do unto others as you want them to do unto you.” And if people treat us well, we generally do the same in return. But what about when others hurt us? Jesus gives us an even higher calling: “Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you” (Luke 6:27-28). David Anderson shows us how we can extend extraordinary goodness to bless those who have hurt us. He presents the radical concept of “forgraceness”: grace beyond forgiveness. God empowers us not only to pardon real-life hurts, but to seek the good of others. When this happens, our relationships can experience amazing transformation and redemptive healing. We can’t do this on our own. We need God’s strength to take us to the next level. With God’s grace, we can go platinum.

  • Beyond Forgiveness : Reflections On Atonement


    As indispensable as forgiveness has been to the healing process throughout history, there is another equally profound action that is needed for ultimate reconciliation, which Arun Gandhi, grandson of Mohandas Gandhi, calls “the other side of the coin.” Turning over the coin of forgiveness, we discover “atonement,” the half-hidden, much-overlooked other half of the reconciliation process.

    “Beyond Forgiveness” shows how acts of atonement–making amends, providing restitution, restoring balance–can relieve us of the pain of the past and give us a hopeful future. This rich and powerful book includes 15 thoughtful contributions by high-profile thinkers and activists including Huston Smith, Michael Bernard Beckwith, Azim Khamisa, Rabbi Michael Lerner, Jacob Needleman, Michael Nagler, Diane Hennacy Powell, James O’Dea, Arun Gandhi, Kate Dahlstedt, Ed Tick, Richard J. Meyer, Rev. Heng Sure, Douglas George-Kanentiio and Katharine Dever. Atonement is put forward as a process that we must all learn to practice–from individuals to nations–if we are to heal our wounds and move forward.

I admonish you to read the book Church Hurts Can Make You Bitter or Better: You Choose!, which will show you how to triumph over hurts, regardless of their source, and then you can use this corresponding workbook to address your issues.

    Many of you can confess that now is the time to move on from where you are to where you need to be. No matter who offended you or what kind of hurt you suffered, you must move on. No longer, allow the enemy of your soul to keep you in this holding pattern. Pray, acknowledge, forgive, apologize, and say goodbye. The time to move on is now!

  • Church Hurts Can Make You Bitter


    My prayer is that every hurt you have encountered throughout your life will be released from you as you go through the various chapters. Like a person who sets a goal to lose weight, you will set a goal in your mind and heart today, and you will begin working hard to lose hurts that have been keeping you from your destiny and the land of promise. Many of you think because you are walking in the newness of life everyone else is traveling the same road. The mind you now have is the mind of Christ, and your sole purpose is to please God. You do not expect to deal with drama in the church. You expect to see a noticeable difference between the unsaved and those who profess salvation. The dreadful cycle of hurt has damaged, wounded, and killed many people in the church. No matter how hard you try to camouflage the pain inside, it is not hidden. You can cover bruises, scars, and cuts, but hurt to the heart shows in various forms that are noticeable.

  • Aunt Lillian


    Aunt Lillian is a chilling story of bitterness and unforgiveness. It is a memoir that compels the reader to jump out of the author’s life and into his own family. As he or she “river rafts” through many sequences, forgiveness becomes an imposing personal challenge. It is never an easy fix. Sometimes it’s a long drawn out process, sometimes an immediate decision, and tragically, sometimes never happening at all. The choice we make to forgive or not to forgive has far-reaching effects. Under The Peach Tree is also a memoir, depicting the life and death of the author’s fourteen-year old son. It is meant to be a hope and encouragement to those who have lost children. It is a companion book to Aunt Lillian because of a decision to forgive the “unforgivable.”

  • Forgiveness The Jesus Way


    Finding the Story, James Ayers examines the art of narrative preaching and shows how storytelling can help people in the pews hear God speaking to their hearts through scripture. Ayers analyzes ways to illuminate texts that are difficult to preach, and provides a wealth of creative approaches for making them accessible — such as looking at Psalm 137 through the eyes of a slave who watched his child dashed against the rocks, or seeing Matthew and Luke’s Christmas narratives through the eyes of a bitter man whose only son was killed in Vietnam. Finding the Story offers a dynamic avenue into some of the very thorniest texts and topics of the bible — enabling readers to find and share unique opportunities for encounters with God!

    Finding the Story is a must-have tool for all ministers who:
    long to connect with their congregations on a deeper level;
    struggle with how to preach doctrinally heavy passages without putting listeners to sleep;
    wonder how to relate the imprecatory psalms to modern-day situations; and
    want their people to hear the voice of the Holy Spirit rather than the droning of a shepherd i 1/2 one who feels the same things they feel, but who sometimes finds it difficult to share those feelings.

  • Vengeance


    It is not easy to forgive. When someone has hurt you, your first reaction is to retaliate. You want them to pay for what they did. They will pay; the Bible says whatever you sow you will reap. God’s justice is fair. Allow God to avenge you. It is God that avengeth me. PSALM 18:47

  • Forgiveness : Making Peace With The Past


    Forgiveness is a door. It’s the way to peace and joy. But it’s a small door, and it can’t be entered without stooping–or kneeling. And sometimes it is very hard to find.

    When we hurt the people we love, how do we go about restoring the relationship?

    When we suffer the pain of betrayal or injury or rejection from someone else, how do we deal with the anger and resentment we feel?

    In eight studies, Douglas Connelly leads the way to help you discover, understand and practice what the Bible says about forgiveness.

    This LifeGuide Bible Study features questions for starting group discussions and for meeting God in personal reflection, together with leader’s notes and a “Now or Later” section in each study

  • Jason Has Been Shot


    At the same time North Americans were focusing on the brave actions of several Christian teens in the Columbine High School shooting in Colorado, Canada was quietly having its own Columbine incident. What Canadians once thought ‘could only happen in America,’ was now taking place right here in our own backyard to Jason Lang, the son of an Anglican pastor. But God had a plan for this tragedy. Read the true and inspiring story of how a family’s torment was used by God as the ‘raw material’ to turn their anger and grief into a powerful testimony of His grace through the act of forgiving their son’s killer.

    Since Jason’s death, both Dale and his wife Diane have been asked to speak at hundreds of events across the country, including over 250 high schools, numerous conferences, teachers’ conventions, the National Prayer Breakfast, television, radio, churches, and numerous other functions.

  • Forgiving And Reconciling (Revised)


    Psychologist and counselor Everett Worthington, the leading Christian researcher on forgiveness, says that forgiving is a gift we give to others. When we offer forgiveness to others as an altruistic gift, it is more effective than when we forgive only for our own benefit in an effort to “get over” the hurt. True forgiveness is accomplished through a careful process of understanding both the offense and the offender, and taking active steps to forgiveness. In this insightful and practical book, Worthington provides a clinically proven stategy and a wealth of resources for moving toward forgiveness.
