Publisher's Description

The act of remembering can be a healing process when the goal is reconciliation.

If someone asks your name, it s easy to answer. But if someone asks you to recall your involvement in a serious accident, a physical or sexual violation, a hurtful relationship, or any other painful event, it may not be easy or comfortable to answer. Both types of responses rely on your ability to remember, a valuable gift from God. Memory helps you know who you are, from whence you ve come, and to whom you belong. But memories of past events that are painful can haunt and distort your identity as a person and your sense of purpose in life.

Nevertheless, memory defines us and helps us understand who we are. As Miroslav Volf states in his interview Redeeming Bitterness in CHRISTIANITY TODAY, we need not be held hostage by difficult, painful memories. We can reconcile these memories by facing instead of avoiding them as we take steps to heal.
