To say that offering forgiveness is a challenge is an understatement.
Forgiveness is tough! Forgiveness is often messy. Forgiveness doesn't feel good to most of us.
And when it comes to the biggest, deepest hurts in life, forgiveness can seem impossible. Some hurts are everyday irritations we endure for having to live with other human beings who lose their tempers, get up on the wrong side of the bed, say nasty things, and are ungrateful, selfish, and irritable. Some hurts are of a magnitude that far transcends these - degradation, exploitation, abandonment, rejection, humiliation, racism, bullying, and even physical, sexual, or emotional abuse.
But with God's grace, even in those most difficult cases, forgiveness is possible.
In Choosing Forgiveness, Fr. Thomas Berg and Dr. Timothy Lock are your guides on the way toward forgiveness through the grace of God. This book will help you discover the pathway to healing, peace, and interior freedom, releasing you and those who have wronged you from the bondage of unforgiveness.
