Forgiving and Being Forgiven- A Relationship Guide
July 9, 2015
This short book by R. Jay Waggoner, "Repairing Broken Relationships," is an wonderful relationship compass. This book, designed as a Bible study, emphasizes what the Bible teaches about forgiving and being forgiven. It contains vital reminders of the downfalls of many relationships: poor conflict resolution! We can't sweep offenses that truly hurt us under the rug, nor can we blow up in anger at the smallest of infractions! We need to seek God's guidance through his Word (the Bible), and take the action steps given to us there to repair the damage. I used to use this book in its earlier form when I taught a high school girl's Bible class at a Christian high school. They used to call it the "friend book." I couldn't think of a better name for a book that emphasizes godly conflict resolution and compassionate forgiveness. I highly recommend this book and the author's other Bible study, "Enticed by Evil" to small groups and individuals seeking to understand more about God's plan for relationship maintenance.
