Product Description

"I believe God is not finished with either of us. Tomorrow is a good day." ---Anthony to Laurie

When her father was murdered, Laurie Coombs sought justice---and found it. His murderer now serves two life sentences with no possibility of parole. Yet, despite the swift punishment of the killer, Laurie found herself increasingly full of pain, bitterness, and anger she couldn't control. After coming to faith, she realized she was being called to seek something infinitely more difficult than justice: forgiveness.

This is an extraordinary true story of grace, mercy, and the redemptive power of God to change lives. The reader is swept along with Laurie as she undergoes the life-changing transformation; of becoming a Christian and begins to discover God redeeming losses and healing deep wounds time and time again in Scripture. When she starts to understand that her own healing would require her to love her enemy in a real, practical way, it seemed impossible.

Using her incredible correspondence with the man who killed her father, Laurie reveals a compelling journey of transformation, not only in her life, but in the lives of those whom many would call irredeemable.

Letters from My Father's Murderer is for any audience---Christian or secular---who:

  • Craves freedom from the inability to forgive those who've caused them harm
  • Wants to hear testimony of God's power in our obedience
  • Has experienced pain through other's sin against them
  • Needs to know healing is always possible
The real story here is not primarily about murder and its fallout, but rather about redemption and how far it can reach.

Editorial Reviews

"If you long to understand and experience true forgiveness, don't miss this book. It will give you renewed hope, fresh faith, and a platform upon which you can build redemption, restoration, and a new kind of normal." -- Carol Kent, speaker and author of When I Lay My Isaac Down

"I stand amazed! Letters from My Father's Murderer examines the darkness within all of our hearts and exposes how light can shine brightly, even in the darkest places, when we seek to find the truth. The real truth." -- Tammy Whitehurst, founder of Joy for the Journey

"Read this book carefully; you will probably discover some lies buried in your own heart." -- Dan Frank, lead pastor of Grace Church, Reno, Nevada

"This book is about the meaning of true forgiveness, swapping bitterness for joy, and above all, God's fathomless grace. What readers will especially appreciate is the interweaving of Coombs's understandable pain, confusion, and fear with showing what God can do when an individual is submitted to Him and willing to walk with Him through what may seem an impossible circumstance. Highly recommended." -- CBA Retailers+Resources

"Readers will feel Coombs's agonizing pain but can also rejoice with her as she finds freedom from a lifetime of anger and resentment through true forgiveness." -- Publishers Weekly
