There's no doubt about it. As long as we live on this side of heaven we will face conflict, and be susceptible to anger, broken relationships, rejection, and manipulation.
Perhaps there have been times you've felt stuck in bitterness, discouragement or cynicism. Maybe you've asked "How can I forgive when I hurt as badly as I do?"or you've had moments when you thought you'd truly forgiven, only to have anger return. You may have been taught that anger is bad, that Christians can't be angry or that nothing good ever results from anger.
From the authors who brought you the bestseller The Anger Workbook, Dr. Les Carter and Frank Minirth of The Minirth Clinic use the same tried and true methods to help you truly forgive those who've wronged you. This workbook will teach you how to increase your ability to forgive by:
learning to establish appropriate boundaries
achieving a balance between forgiveness and healthy anger
correctly managing and communicating your anger
forgiving for the right reasons
The workbook format allows you to personalize the information and develop a plan that will lead to real results. This new 12-step plan will guide you through elements that are crucial to forgiveness and healing.
The choice is yours: debilitating anger or forgiveness that frees you to expend your energy on emotionally healthy goals and more satisfying pursuits, such as love, respect, confidence, and servitude. Choose forgiveness and start on the path toward a life of abundance.
