When Jesus responded to the disciples' request: 'teach us to pray' He gave them a 'blue print', an 'outline'.
The prayer includes the words: ".....as we forgive those who sin against us."
In this book these words become 3-dimensional.
The real life events, the reality of the forgiveness extended by the persons wounded deeply - and the reason they're able to truly forgive: "Unwavering confidence in God's providence" - make the book a powerful encouragement. It shows us what it means to live out the " Hallowed be YOUR NAME" part of the prayer Jesus taught.

Dallas, Tx.5 Stars Out Of 5The Heart of the AMISHJuly 18, 2016Dallas, Tx.Quality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I have'nt read this book yet, but by reading what others said I DIFFINATLY NEED THIS BOOK and I'm going to buy 1 for myself , and more as gifts. I have been going thru a very rough time in my life : molested by my uncle many times from 1st grade thru 4th grade. My mom blames me instead of her brother. My mom and my brother has'nt talked to me for over a year. There are many people in my life that I thought I forgave, but trully I have'nt. I've been seeing a Christian Councler for a year now, but I really have'nt received the help that I need, and I NEED help on HOW TO FORGIVE ( truely forgive ), and HOW TO MOVE FORWARDS IN MY LIFE. From reading the reviews from other people, I'm sure this book will help me in those areas where my Christian Councler has not helped me.
