Publisher's Description

Steve Arterburn, bestselling author and host of New Life Live!, shares his regrets and how he learned to live beyond them and allow God to use them. With grace and transparency, Arterburn shows why people get stuck in regret, how it impacts every relationship they enter into, and the steps to emotional and spiritual freedom. More importantly, he offers a clear, proven decision making process that empowers readers t make the best decisions for their lives--decisions that they won't regret.

Just as worry results from not accepting God's full provision for the future, living in regret is an inability to accept God's full provision for the past, especially the mistakes. Regret-Free Living takes the focus off of what was and what might have been, and shines a bright light onto the path of what is and what is to be.

Publisher's Weekly

Arterburn, author of 60-plus books, this times turns his heart and mind to helping readers deal with regret, “one of the biggest inhibitors to living the life God most wants you to live.” He readily admits his own regrets (girlfriend's terminated pregnancy, failed marriage) as he honestly and pointedly guides readers toward a life of peace, patience and self-control. Arterburn first addresses the signs of an unhealthy relationship, moves on to how to admit the need for help and then to acknowledge one's own part in problems. His trademark humor and honesty make the responsibility pill easier to swallow as he leads readers toward knowing how to withdraw from conflict, keep dignity intact and get rid of baggage of the past. Forgiveness, says Arterburn, is “the essential ingredient to living a regret-free life,” and he coaches readers on how to reach that point. Arterburn fans new and longtime will find more useful life lessons here, always pointing to God, who is “showing us our path along a magnificent, God-centered, regret-free life.” (Oct.)

    Very resourceful book to help you in breaking bad habits and to embrace a better way to live your life free of the burdens of your past regrets. Easy to understand. The author helps you acknowledge your bad behaviors, dropping your baggage, restoring your life with trust and truth and loving your life to the fullest. The author starts out by pointing out the signs of an unhealthy relationship, then helping you find the wrongs in your life and helping you step by step in changing your life. I would highly recommend this book to anyone looking to better your life and letting go of all the regrets in your life.

    Very practical. Very understandable. I'm sure this will prove to be a helpful book to many, especially those within the target audience: those who have made bad decisions, most pointedly, in their relationships, and need some good advice to help them dig their way out. I found this book very easy to read, a trend that seems to be more and more popular in self-help/relational living/counseling books for the everyday person. the chapters are well-titled; you can look at each in the table of contents and have a pretty good idea what that chapter will be about. Within each chapter are helpful descriptions of the areas of concern and the steps to take to deal with that area. If I have any reservations about this book, they would be two-fold. First, as I began to read, I had a hard time knowing who the target audience would be, other than "just about everybody who has regrets." I felt like more like a listener to the radio program Arterburn has, and that each day is self-contained, and not necessarily connected to the previous. Second, and this is a concern I always bring to the table whenever I read a "therapeutic" type book, is this: Does this book have me laying it down and looking to my Savior, Jesus Christ, for everything it's just suggested? I have to admit, I just never sensed this to be the case here. Don't get me wrong. Arterburn frequently directs us to look to God for help and forgiveness. Yet I couldn't help but wonder how much better it could have been had the cross of Jesus Christ been far more central. Coming to Christ, knowing what the cross has accomplished, preaching the gospel to myself everyday is the only true way of living daily life in all its facets without regret.

    I have to admit, I have read one other book by Stephen Arterburn and I actually left the book feeling worse than when I started it. So, I was hesitant to read another book by this author, but I have come a long way in the years since I read that book and his new book, Regret-Free Living is about a more practical, everyday issue. And that issue is healing and repairing unhealthy relationships. Mr. Artherburn presents the reader with useable information about unhealthy relationships starting with how to tell the signs of an unhealthy relationship. He then takes the reader through the steps to either mend relationships or to take the steps to move on and heal and find forgiveness. I found Regret-Free Living to be a useful and practical book. The information presented here is well organized and clear. This book covers a lot of more surface level issues and does not take the reader in-depth, which I think is acceptable because a reader who needs more depth would probably benefit from one-on-one therapy like I had. The author has included several experiences from his past and experiences from people he has helped which makes it simpler to apply his guidance to our lives. He emphasizes the need for God in our healing and in our relationships.Unlike the last book I read by this author, I feel comfortable recommending this book to readers who have or have had unhealthy relationships. It is written in a kind and friendly manner that readers will find comforting and helpful.

    As a pastor one of the things I like to do is to come up with a theme for each year. This year I have decided on the "Year of Hope." In my search for resources and ideas on where people need hope and the hope that they have I came across a book by Stephen Arterburn entitled "Regret-Free Living: Hope For Past Mistakes And Freedom From Unhealthy Patterns." One area of hope that I decided I wanted to talk about was in the area of relationships. Many people seem to have a lot of difficulty with destructive and unhealthy relationships and habits. This book offers some helpful insight into this area. This book does not pat you on the back and make you feel good just to make you feel good, but instead Arterburn shows us that we have accept responsibility for our actions and the state of our relationships. He also takes the time to help identify some tools that we have at our disposal to help us live a regret-free life. This book, while it is specifically about hope for relationships, has been a help in that area. I recommend this book for those seeking hope in your relationships.

    Regret-Free Living by Stephen Arterburn was a refreshing surprise from what I expected. While I see the need for leaving regrets behind, doing so isn't as simple as it sounds. But Arterburn offers practical suggestions and experience from his own life, as well as illustrations from others, that give insight into--not only the whys--but the hows of leaving our regrets behind and moving forward.Written with down-to-earth humor, the author had me laughing out loud more than once, and yet thinking deeply about what he had to say. Not only is the advice sound for my own life, I have friends and family to whom I'm passing this one on. They need the freedom promised, and I agree with the author that ridding our lives of regrets truly will open our hearts to healing so we can move forward in love.
