Editorial Reviews


A moment to think can buy our lives much more success. Forgiveness is a collection of thoughts and inspiration from Joan Mueller who advises readers how to ponder their world when life hits them hard. From life changing events that push us to power us through our lives, Forgiveness is a strongly recommended pick for those looking for brief yet powerful moments of faith to carry us through life s hardest struggles, with spirituality for Christians and non-Christians alike. --Midwest Book Review May 2012

The emphasis throughout is on forgiving those who have wronged us, especially for those who are struggling to forgive because of deep wounds. The exercises are also useful to all Christians, whether they feel the need to forgive a particular hurt or not, but who would like to examine their conscience daily and make forgiveness a daily spiritual exercise. --John Irvine on

Format: Paperback
This addition to the popular "7 x 4" series is written by Joan Mueller, Ph.D., a Franciscan scholar and author who teaches theology and Christian spirituality at Creighton University. The book is formatted as four weekly sessions. Each has seven two-page entries consisting of a scripture passage, reflection, and spiritual practice.

Weekly topics are (1) God heals our wounds, (2) asking God to forgive, (3) prayerfully discerning God's way, and (4) love. One of the topics in the third week is entitled "Surrendering our Sorrow into God's Hands." The reading is from Luke 23:44-45 in which Jesus cries out to God from the cross. Mueller draws our attention to that cry, "Father into your hands I commend my spirit" and his plea, also from the cross, for the Father's forgiveness of those at whose hands he is put to death. "Even with his last breath, Jesus chooses love--not an easy choice," writes Mueller. The spiritual practice suggests keeping these two forgiveness prayers of Jesus in our hearts throughout the day, trusting God with our sorrow, and knowing that God promises us healing.

In her introduction, Mueller describes two intended audiences for "Forgiveness." She writes for those with "significant wounds" who struggle with forgiveness and have difficulty healing. The material is also directed to Christians striving to make forgiveness "a spirituality that divinizes their way of living in the world." In the introduction and throughout the work, Mueller emphasize the need for readers to be gentle with themselves, take as much time as needed, and go back over the material several times, if necessary, before moving forward. "God asks us to forgive and as long as we are `in process,' we are moving toward God," she writes. We need to be tender with our souls as God is tender with us.
