"Jackie has more wisdom for us on the subject of love. She thoughtfully takes the reader on a journey deep into the rich topic of forgiveness and its implications for the human heart. I recommend this book for anyone longing for release from resentment and desiring the freedom to love." --Kristin Armstrong, author of Happily Ever After and Work in Progress
"When I think of what I have learned from the message of biblical forgiveness I heard from Jackie Kendall, I think of going from being a prisoner in the jail of bitterness to being a free citizen in the country of grace. Jackie's message has been instrumental in my life many times. Forgiveness is not a suggestion, it is a command, and I know personally why God desires for us to forgive, forgive, forgive." --Jon Kitna, NFL quarterback
SallyTampa, FL4 Stars Out Of 5March 19, 2010SallyTampa, FLThis primer on forgiveness gives an in-depth insight on how to do the job. The author breaks down the ability to forgive as per the biblical command to forgive 7 times 70. She lists the six most commonly used excuses for not forgiving: 1. The offense was too great. 2. The memories of the offense are so vivid. 3. The offense was repeated. 4. You want to make the person pay for the offense. 5. You are too angry to even consider forgiving this person. 6. The offender didn't say, "I am sorry." Addressing each excuse, the author points out that forgiving is a gift, a choice that we must make to experience the freedom to love. She also points out that reconciliation does not necessarily go hand-in-hand with forgiveness. A list follows each chapter that help "Make It Personal." I feel that most folks will find this book helpful.
Marta Hoelscher5 Stars Out Of 5March 2, 2009Marta HoelscherWe all have someone who we are holding a grudge against, but how do we let go? Jackie Kendall is embracing the subject of forgiving those unforgiveable in your life. NOT forgiving someone is a sin; she explains how and why this is so, and why if you want to move on and have loving relationships you need to conquer that. I thought this book was great. We all have baggage from our pasts that really threaten our happiness in the future. I know I had feelings of unforgiveness against my ex-husband. This really opened my eyes to how to find forgiveness towards him and how that could open up my future. Whether youre angry at an abusive husband or parent, a friend who said the wrong thing, people in your office, or even your children Jackie helps you understand why you need to forgive them, and how to do it. The book also examines the artificial forgiveness we all seem to practice on a daily basis. Have you ever told little white lie excusing peoples actions to their faces and then silently stew about the offense. This book is a must read for just about everyone. Believe me, it will shine a bit of light in places you didnt know you had to work on!
