(PUBEerdmans)Forgiveness today is usually construed as too easy or too difficult. Evaluating cheap grace, repentance and judgment, loving enemies, therapeutic misunderstanding, Jones believes forgiveness is not so much absolution from guilt as restoration to communion. 288 pages, softcover.

    The best book I've read on the subject of forgiveness. Jones builds his case well with a refreshing absence of pop psychology. Some background is necessary to get the full benefit, such as a familiarity with Dietrich Bonhoeffer and watching the Clint Eastwood's Unforgiven. After Jones builds his case he offers some sensitivity buffering toward the end of the book. The final chapters helped me to understand that for many abused people forgiveness is a lifelong challenge. Awesome book! Higest recommendation.

    Dr. Jones closely and carefully examines what is required of usas Christians if we are to live the life Christ has called us to. Itfiercely challenges our current and all too common beliefs in "cheap grace" and minimalist Christianity. Dr. Jones presents powerful Christian figures, such as Bonhoeffer, and how theirlives exemplified Jesus' call to ongoing repentance exemplifiedin love "in spite of." This is not a book to be read lightly or tobe skimmed over to get the main point. In a world fraught withanger, revenge, and narcissism, the Christian church should standas an example of how discipline, knowledge, thoughfulness, andlove can resolve problems. Dr. Jones' book demonstrates howembodying forgiveness can forge this path. I fear it is a path fewChristians have the stomach or the faith to walk.
