Editorial Reviews

Review

"That forgiveness is both the central idea of Christianity, and an assault on the conventional human understanding of justice, comes through with great clarity in Fr. Scott Hurd's short, lucid new book..." -Mike Potemra, National Review Online

"I am very moved by your book..."
-Fr. Benedict Groeschel, CFR


(W)ritten lovingly, and with common sense... No matter what you may think you know about forgiveness, you will learn from this book. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I did. - Dennis O'Donovan, host of "Religion, Politics, and the Culture," WLVJ radio

"Forgiveness: A Catholic Approach is exceptional! Fr. Scott Hurd has penned the book that should be in every Catholic home."
-Kris McGregor, host of "Inside the Pages," Spirit Catholic Network


"Forgiveness: A Catholic Approach" should help bring hope and healing to countless people who are struggling to forgive what seems unforgivable. - Deacon Greg Kandra, "The Deacon's Bench"

I'm not Catholic and I'm not a religious person, but I found this book very enlightening. There are definitely passages that are heavy on the Jesus, but I think even athiests can read this and find insight into the meaning and power of compassion.

I'v had the privilege of meeting Fr. Scott Hurd and enjoyed a brief conversation with him before publication of his book. Based on my initial impression of Fr. Hurd, I looked forward to reading his book in hopes that it would help me in the most difficult part of my spiritual life; the act of forgiving. His comments on forgiving and forgetting, which is what I get stuck on, was beneficial in that I discovered that, while I could forgive hurts, I could not forget them. Now, I know that is not a barrier to forgiveness and for that insight alone, I am rewarded with studying Forgiveness: A Catholic Approach. This book receives a well deserved five star rating.

I have read a few books on forgiveness recently. I know how important it is to forgive not only yourself but others and how the two are interrelated. This book does not only show us why it is important to forgive but gives concrete methods to forgive.
This book is for anyone who is serious about forgiving themselves and others.

Anyone who needs to be forgiven for something they did, or is troubled by a past aggression or violent act which has been done to them - this is your book.

The author opens every discussion about 'forgiveness' with a real life story. The story helps the reader better understand what forgiving the other AND forgiving ourselves, truly means.

This books cleanses the soul and can make the reader a better person for others.

This is a great book because it helps a person to see that may continuing to be unforgiving, the only person one hurts is oneself. People (others) can sense the unforgiveness and turn away. To have a truly happy heart it is best to forgive. That doesn't mean that you have to befriend the person who is cruel to you, it just means that you will forgive and allow peace to reign in your heart. Very much appreciated book.

For those dealing with forgiveness at every level of the human experience. Short chapters held my interest and made it possible to pick up this book and read just a few pages on a busy day. Even five minutes of reading this book is encouraging in our struggle to give and accept forgiveness.

Very well written book on a topic we don't always examine fully. I learned a lot from this book's straightforward manner.
