Each individual has been hurt emotionally, physically, psychologically, or spiritually at some point in his or her life. Although some people have been able to address their painful issue and move on, far too many persons resolve that they “will never forgive” the person who has injured them. Victor D. Marshall holds the view that people who are unable to forgive and let go of past hurts have not experienced healing. In fact, the major principle of On the Road to Forgiveness: Experiencing Healing on the Way is that “for a person to forgive, he needs to experience some degree of healing; and to experience healing, an individual needs to forgive themselves and others.” Out of this audacious perspective, Victor has developed eight principles, on which each chapter is built. Marshall then identifies five stages that every individual needs to pass through in order to experience healing and move on with his or her life. In his biblically grounded, insightful, and well-researched book, Victor uses a psycho-spiritual approach to illustrate the impact of forgiveness on our lives. A key element of this volume, On the Road to Forgiveness is the practical cases he includes to provide analytical discussions. If you are struggling with issues of forgiveness, this book identifies ways by which you can overcome “living in the past.” Victor also shares some major discoveries about the psychological benefits of forgiving others, one of which is that forgiveness contributes to the fulfillment of various psychological needs. As you turn the pages of this intriguing book, you will be helped to experience emotional freedom, be encouraged to develop your spirituality further, and ultimately grasp the importance of focusing on issues of eternal value. May the Divine One be with you on this journey!

The last 20 years have seen the development of a growing body of psychological literature on the long-neglected subject of forgiveness. Forgiveness has been widely regarded as a purely religious construct. However, recently it has been advocated in many different secular contexts as offering an appropriate and healthy means of release. The book continually engages the reader on both psychological and theological levels in a sustained dialogue that has not permeated any of the books already available on forgiveness.

"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.

Book Explains the Concept of Forgiveness Henry J. Charles brings forgiveness into modernity as an integral moral imperative PORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad and Tobago (Release Date TBD) When the concept of forgiveness takes the center stage, most Christian and Western culture-oriented people usually relate it to its religious connotation, in every likelihood drawing on the ultimate expression of forgiveness in the death of Jesus Christ on the cross. Author Henry J. Charles, though affirming the roots of forgiveness in the Biblical heritage, considers the notion in its broader dimensions as an ethical imperative, one also capable of geo-political application. FORGIVENESS CONSIDERED first explores the word in its biblical and non-biblical meanings. It also clarifi es the several misrepresentations and misconceptions of forgiveness in ordinary understanding. In other portions of the book, the author deals with forgiveness as a special process akin to a fundamental change in character. He also deals with implications of forgiving and forgetting, and the idea that certain acts can be considered unforgiveable. The book finally looks to special geopolitical contexts, where nations attempt to come to term with histories of brutality and oppression, as a way to envisage and realize a more liberating future. He examines the realities of amnesty, forgiveness, and reconciliation in South Africa, in the light of the latters history of apartheid, in the hope that forgiveness and reconciliation may be accorded a much wider application in human affairs than repairing the serious breaches that occur in interpersonal relations.

Good Sex presents sexual ethics in the light of faith. Speaking on behalf of Christianity, Buss describes love your neighbor as yourself as the only Christian rule; it is a positive rule rather than one that focuses on prohibitions. Since this call is never fulfilled in practice, it is joined by forgiveness for oneself and others. More concrete guidelines need to be aided by wisdom, which is not specifically Christian. Detailed biblical support is provided at the end. Stipe, a contemporary Pagan, advocates respect for all living things and doing no harm as a minimal ethical guide, leaving positive prescriptions to individual judgment. Buss and Stipe discuss details of sexual ethics in largely positive terms--what is good to do--but also with a concern for problems that should be avoided. They agree in many practical matters, just as Christians and Pagans did many years ago, before sexual equality became an ideal. They discuss various kinds of sex, including seeing and being seen, touching, masturbation, and penetration; different sexual identities; committed and uncommitted relationships, including the advisability of extended relations; having and raising children; abortion; and sensuous awareness in a spiritual setting.

DIVIn this little book, we discover that if Christianity isn’t about forgiveness, it’s about nothing at all. But is there a limit to forgiveness? Is it always possible? Or even always right? This book begins with Simon Wiesenthal, an Austrian Jew imprisoned in a Nazi concentration camp during WWII, who was confronted with the plea for forgiveness from a dying Nazi SS soldier. This book will challenge you with the question: “What would you do?”/divDIV /divDIVThe Question of Forgiveness reminds us that Christ’s command to love your enemy is very hard to do, but as followers of Christ, we are called to believe that love is more powerful than hate—something that Christ modeled to the extreme of Calvary’s cross. Zahnd digs into the question of forgiveness, and concludes with this: beyond the suffering of unconditional forgiveness lie the resurrection of love and the triumph of peace./div

Isaac Mbabazi makes a major contribution to the field of New Testament by arguing that the relevant Matthean theme of interpersonal forgiveness is quite central to the first Gospel. In The Significance of Interpersonal Forgiveness in the Gospel of Matthew, he delineates five sets of evidence in support of his argument. Beginning with a survey of all Matthean forgiveness and forgiveness-related texts, he then carries out an in-depth exegesis of two key Matthean texts in which the idea of interpersonal forgiveness is explicit. Discourse analysis informs his discussion, offering valuable insight into Matthew's point of view. Mbabazi notes that the forgiveness pattern that emerges from contemporary Greco-Roman literature differs remarkably from the pattern found in Matthew, where granting forgiveness appears not only as a reasonable act, but reluctance or failure to grant it makes the unforgiving person accountable to God.
