Be Forewarned. This book is full of sex. Naughty sex too. If you liked Fifty Shades of Grey - check this book out. The author can't go more than two pages without mentioning sex - even when the chapter is about LYING. He's obsessed.

The whole premise of the book is that you are a terrible person. And I don't care who YOU are - it covers that. You, no matter who - are such a Colossal screwup - that it would be a literal MIRACLE if anyone ever forgave you.

Especially god.

You see. God. Hates. Sin. And YOU are a sinner. And while the book doesn't come right out and say that GOD HATES YOU. Well, he hates pretty much everything you've done and think about. So....

It might seem confusing, but I will walk you through it. God made you, in his image - but that image contains a disgusting, lazy, lying, gossiping, whore-mongering, faithless, useless sack of crap who loves Satan and "logic" more than you love Jesus Christ.

And your goal is to take out all that yucky that god created you with so that you can be exactly like god. Yes, the book talks extensively about attaining godhood. That's the ultimate goal for human beings - is to become like god.

"The natural man is an enemy of god," is a Mormon scripture that is quoted occasionally in the book. It is your job overcome that "naturalness" in order to become Super-Natural as god is. And unfortunately for us mortals, sex is the most natural thing we can do. Unless, of course, it's homosexual sex which is a "sin against nature." God, hates the natural man and the homosexual even though you'd think he'd appreciate the "unnaturalness" of it. But that would be you using your "crafty logic" you sinner. Trust me. Sex is exactly like Karate.

I have never read such a depressing, downhearted, book. I felt that this is the worst book I have ever read in my entire life. I read the Book of Mormon daily. I never got the feeling from the Book of Mormon that I received from from The Miracle of Forgivenesses. I feel like I will never ever make the Celestial kingdom. Why even try! My brother committed suicide due to horrible circumstances and it says the highest kingdom he can attain is the Terrestrial kingdom. I cried and cried and cried. My brother was a wonderful man and he served everyone. Everyone that came in contact with him he helped them. Whatever they needed (the shirt of his back). His family never lack for any help from him. All you needed to do was make a phone call or he would be there before you even knew it and he would be helping you. To me that is Christlike service and he can't even make it to the Celestial kingdom that Christ set such a good example for us. " If you love me feed my sheep." That is the service Christ was talking about. There are examples after examples from this book I could give you but it would be an epistle. Carrie Jean Jones

Touch on many things I hadn't thought of previously and opened my eyes to somethings that I hadn't understood fully.

It's entertaining to read the reviews for this book; they're incredibly varied. What you get out of this book will largely depend on where your heart is when you read it.

The title of this book is "The Miracle of Forgiveness". That alone should tell you some of the topics the book is to cover: sin, repentance, and finally, forgiveness through Christ and His Atonement.

Yes, this book spends a lot of time discussing sin and the various ways in which one may commit sin (although the discussion is by no means exhaustive). Much of it comes from the author's experience of many years as an ecclesiastical leader. Will this discussion make you feel guilty? Probably. It should. One of the aims of the book is to urge the reader to improve him or herself. Keep in mind, guilt isn't a bad thing. If you don't feel guilty about something you're not likely to change it. Will this discussion offend you? Possibly. If you're the sort that doesn't like to hear that what you're doing is wrong, then yes, you'll find parts of the book to be a hard read.

The author of the book is LDS. As such, there is an LDS focus to the writing, but honest-hearted, non-LDS believers in Christ will also find the book to be of value. While there is extensive quoting of LDS scripture in addition to the Bible, and LDS-related experiences, the bottom line is universal to believers in Christ: sin (any sin) makes us unworthy to return to Heaven, and it is the miracle of Christ's Atonement that enables us to become clean and return.

Read this book with a humble heart, and a desire to learn and improve yourself, and you'll discover many ways in which you need to improve yourself. You'll also have a better understanding of and appreciation for the Lord Jesus and what He has done for you.

It's a hard book to read, but it's good for the soul. I like what Elder Scott said... read the last chapter before beginning the rest of the book. There is a very good reason that this book is assigned to those looking toward repentance. It helps realign whatever the World has told us to what God has told us. It is a little harsh- I can't read it in one sitting, and I don't have "big" sins on my shoulders. I would definitely couple this book with another loving book on the Atonement (one that approaches the Atonement with "God loves you" versus the cut-and-dried hellfire that this tends to be).
