Product Description

Why is forgiveness so difficult? Must we forgive when it's the other person's fault? What if we feel we can't forgive because we've been hurt so badly? When we hold grudges, seek retribution, and blame others, we short-circuit our ability to live the Christian life the way it's meant to be lived. This book shows the way to freedom, peace, and emotional healing.

Publisher's Description

Few Christians realize nearly every problem in life stems from an unwillingness to forgive someone. When we hold grudges, seek retribution, and blame others, we end up hurting our relationships with God and people—and short–circuit our ability to live the Christian live the way it’s meant to be lived.

Why is forgiveness so difficult at times? Must we forgive when it’s the other person’s fault? How should we handle repeat offenses? What if we feel we can’t forgive because we’ve been hurt so badly?

Pritchard answers these questions and more by pointing to God’s example as the Supreme Forgiver. When we learn to forgive in the way He forgives, then we’ll know true freedom, peace, and emotional healing.

Author Bio

Ray Pritchard, senior pastor of Calvary Memorial Church, Oak Park, Illinois, has ministered extensively overseas and is a frequent conference speaker and guest on Christian radio and television talk shows. Ray has written 25 books, including An Anchor for the Soul, In the Shadow of the Cross, and Man of Honor. He and Marlene, his wife of 30 years, have three sons.

When a book begins with the author praying for the reader, watch out! Ray Pritchard is serious about the subject of forgiveness and this passion translates into some powerful pages.
Although this topic is common in Christian circles, the author brings some fresh insights to the table. He examines forgiveness from several different angles, which creates a more complete picture for the believer. Most noteworthy is his clarification of several “difficult” passages of Scripture on this subject. His understanding of these verses brings glory to God and an urgent motivation to the reader.
And that’s what this book is all about. Ray Pritchard doesn’t want people to just read this book and walk away. He wants them to read the book and then run to restore any damaged relationships in their lives. His practical advice offers a workable plan to do that very thing. While never minimizing the emotions that accompany this topic, the author draws on the power and the presence of the Lord to bring about healing and freedom. He shows the reader that forgiveness is not only the right thing to do; it’s really the only true option for a child of God.
There is honesty and humility in these pages. While some may begin reading this book with hands clenched in anger, by the last page, those same hands will be open to accept this wonderful teaching Ray Pritchard acts as a friend and counselor, and his writing style has a genuine element of sincerity. His personal knowledge of the Word, combined with his applicable interpretation of it, has enabled him to write a book that is both sensitive and dynamic. -- Joyce Handzo, Christian Book

    It was a phenomenal book. Excellent teaching. It was an amazing tool in my journey. I had no idea I was in bondage due to unforgiveness until I read this book. Very good read and very helpful. The book was able to explain how I was being held captive. Then through prayer and obedience I was set free. Very transforming if you allow the Holy Spirit to reveal the hindrances of moving forward. Thanks be to God I was able to "let go of my hurt, experience renewed relationships, and found new intimacy with God". This book truly meet me where I was at. Fully recommend this book.
