Most of my copy is highlighted, underlined, notes written within, and pages dog-eared. I copied a few pages to share with others. They were so intrigued, they purchased the book themselves.

I highly recommend this amazing little book for everyone. None of us has escaped being hurt by someone at one time or another in our lives, or hurting another, whether knowing or unknowing.

Very good. Deals with both the theoretical as well as the practical. Aug 19, Travis rated it liked it. It is impossible to walk through this life without hurting someone or being hurt by someone. God, of course, knows this fact, which explains why he chose to teach us in his word about forgiveness. Adam Hamilton, senior pastor of the United Methodist Church of the Resurrection in Leawood, Kansas and author of several books, has taken a stab at the important topic of helping Christians understand forgiveness in simple terms in his book appropriately titled Forgiveness.
He illustrates often, depicting carrying the burden of anger like a backpack full of stones.
Nothing in this work is too complex for believers to easily grasp and immediately apply. One example of the helpful counsel the author offers is in the acronym R.

Whenever we find ourselves offended by something that another person does that is not really significant, Hamilton suggest we R remember that we have probably done something similar in our own lives, A assume the best about the person who offended us, and P pray for the person who has offended us. IF we will practice this simple plan, we will find it much easier to let go of simple annoyances before they become big problems. Hamilton also does a fine job with his explanation of the concept of repentance.
Forgiveness: Finding Peace Through Letting Go
The author grasps that repentance is more than mere change. Instead, he presents the truly biblical understanding of repentance as a change of mind which leads to sorrow and a change of action. Negatives I found that the book may have relied a bit more heavily on psychological theory than I would have preferred. An example of this comes in the premise that we forgive in order to free ourselves of burdens, regardless of the actions of others. The author does not back this teaching with a solidly biblical foundation, thus leaving it open to question whether this principle is truly in Scripture or merely in modern therapy.
Since the need to forgive has been present since Adam and Eve, the authors of Scripture and the God who inspired it obviously knew the topic well. This leaves me wondering if there is not something missing. Similarly, the author points out that it is often important to confront those who have sinned against us.
However, he does not share with us much about when we can then complete the transaction of forgiveness. I would have liked to find more in this work about the hard question of what to do when a person sins against another and yet refuses to acknowledge it or repent. In many ways, the book is helpful. Obviously, a book of this size will not be able to cover every contingency and will not be an exhaustive theological look at the topic.
For those looking for a quick peek at the topic of forgiveness, this book has points to recommend it. However, in general I would send readers elsewhere if they really want to dig into the topic.

Narrator thoughts — I like this narrator. He has a very clear distinct voice. Some narrators just show up and say the words and you can tell that in their voice.

This added a great dimension to the audiobook. Book thoughts — As far as the book went, I liked that he described forgiveness as a process. Some people make forgiveness sound so easy and fast.

Experienced facilitators will lead each of the four-week sessions, but the format will be like a book club discussion. The Sunday sessions also offer a free lunch at noon and free childcare. Forgiveness should not be used as a tool that excuses, perpetuates or enables harmful behaviors by chronic abusers.
