A Review for Booksneeze Publishers

The Truth about Forgiveness
By John MacArthur

This is a book about a very important topic: forgiveness. Most Christians struggle with forgiveness. We don’t forgive others easily. And we are guilt-ridden if we do something wrong.

Forgiveness is hard work, no matter how you look at it, unless you have the right approach toward forgiveness. When we’re trying to forgive another person for hurting us or destroying our reputation, we seem to hold onto the hurt and pain for a very long time. We feel that we are holding the other person hostage when we don’t forgive. But the truth of the matter is that we’re only hurting ourselves when we don’t forgive. It’s like we live in a prison cell of our own making. This is a very hard lesson to learn. It took me a very long time. And I still struggle with this. But true freedom and healing can only occur after we finally forgive another for their hurts.

Also, when we need to be forgiven, we hold onto our guilt and inflict a lot of angst on ourselves. Yet, all we have to do is to go to God and ask for forgiveness and He will forgive us each time. This is because God is all-loving and all-merciful. And the story of the prodigal son should inspire all of us to seek forgiveness often as well.

This is John MacArthur’s second book in the Truth Series. This book is designed to give readers a special message that focuses on God’s character and how it applies to our daily struggles. John MacArthur is a bestselling author of many books. He has touched millions of lives with his message of hope and love with his many books. Thank you John for another wonderful book for my faith library!
