Publisher's Description

Lives grind to a halt when people don't know how to relate to their past. Some believe "the past is nothing" and attempt to suppress the brokenness again and again. Others miss out on renewal and change by making the past more important than their present and future. Neither approach moves people toward healing or hope.

Pastor and biblical counselor Stephen Viars introduces a third way to view one's personal history--by exploring the role of the past as God intended. Using Scripture to lead readers forward, Viars provides practical measures to

  • understand the important place "the past" is given in Scripture
  • replace guilt and despair with forgiveness and hope
  • turn failures into stepping stones for growth

This motivating, compassionate resource is for anyone ready to review and release the past so that God can transform their behaviors, relationships, and their ability to hope in a future.

    Extremely Practical and Biblical

    This is an extremely "user-friendly" book on the subject of Biblically dealing with one's past. While I, personally, had no "issues" of the past with which I had to deal, I found it so potentially valuable for those who do that I bought an additional three copies and gave them to men friends who have expressed past problems of their respective pasts that yet need to be Scripturally handled. Obviously, I HIGHLY recommend this book.

    This is a book I bought for someone else only to find it spoke volumes to my own heart. It explains how to Biblically deal with our past instead of either pretending we don't have a past or pretending it isn't important. God gave us the abililty to remember for a reason. It is time we learned how to deal with those memories. I would recommend it to every Christian whether you think you need it or not.
