Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Forgiveness—a simple concept that is complex and difficult to live out—is basic to most all spiritual paths. Ford (Memoir of a Misfit) helps iron out the complexities by sharing personal and historical stories of real people who forgive, giving scriptural encouragement for forgiveness and providing questions and practice exercises at the end of each chapter. What's more, she does all this with an inviting, witty tone reminiscent of a chat with a friend over coffee. Her stated purpose is to provide a book on forgiveness that stresses the spiritual connection we foster with God when we forgive. In doing so, she puts the Divine in the forefront. We forgive because God shows us how: "God wrote the book on the sacred act of forgiveness." Although our call is always to forgive, Ford recognizes the thorniness of forgiving someone who is persistently abusive. "Anyone who tries to make you believe that forgiveness always requires reunion is someone who neither understands forgiveness nor has your best interests at heart," she explains. This primer belongs in the hands of anyone who needs to give or receive forgiveness. (May)

Review

"I dare a person to finish this book without reflecting on someone due--or overdue--forgiveness. With poignant personal and spiritual examples, Ford guides readers on the path to make this closure happen." -- Carol Fitzgerald, founder, faithfulreader.com

"I thought I knew everything there was to know about forgiveness, until I read this book." -- Rabbi Dov Peretz Elkins, editor of Yom Kippur Readings: Inspiration, Information and Contemplation and Rosh Hashanah Readings: Inspiration, Information and Contemplation

"Worth a hundred other books on prayer and spirituality. Do we want to experience God? There is no better way to start than by forgiving the friend or relative who has hurt us." --Robert Ellsberg, author of The Saints' Guide to Happiness

This is the best book I've read on forgiveness. Yes, I was looking for answers and found them. I realized how I was living my life and what I chose to define me. Also I realized how much Christ loves us, and I found a pathway to real healing in my heart. Ms. Ford's insightfulness into forgiveness will touch you heart and soul, and can lead you to a new mind in Christ. I highly recommend this book to everyone. Ms. Ford truly writes with the grace of God.

Format: Paperback
I first connected with Marcia Ford over her insightful book Memoirs of a Misfit. Her seering honesty and gentle tone really resonated with me and affirmed my uniqueness as a child of God. With this book, I connected with her once again in a very deep and profound manner. Here she has employed spiritual insights from a variety of religions and her own personal experiences to guid me along a very rocky path of forgiveness. Highly recommended.

I have read a lot of books on forgiveness. This is the best of the best. The one thing that really stuck with me is that forgiveness is not the same as reconciliation. Most people unconsciously think that forgiveness means they must allow the person back into their life. Not so!!
A great read.

I just expected more to the book. It does have some good basic information. I guess I was expecting a deeper study.
