Review

"The stories told here will echo your own. They echoed my own stories and brought me great comfort. There is also a strength in all of the stories to help anyone who is struggling to forgive someone else or themselves. I highly recommend this book!"  -Mindy Lee

"This varied and captivating (often emotionally moving) collection of stories demonstrates, since each hurtful life event differs, so the obstacles to forgiveness differ. Unshackled and Free tackles these obstacles, not by preaching at us, but by letting those who overcame the obstacles tell their stories...I have a passion for the message of this book. Read it yourself, then get a copy for your friends and children. Life's too short to live it enslaved to bitterness." -J. Steve Miller

This book eloquently and clearly discusses the often-time difficult topic of forgiveness. Forgiveness of others and forgiveness of ourselves. It is centered in the Bible and shares personal experiences of forgiveness. In the experiences shared, I saw my own, making this book even more powerful for me.

This book not only talks about forgiveness and the benefits of being able to forgive and the destructiveness of not being able to forgive, but it also gives you steps to take to help you on that path. Little steps that can make a huge difference, day after day, week after week.

The stories told here will echo your own. They echoed my own stories and brought me great comfort. There is also a strength in all of the stories to help anyone who is struggling to forgive someone else or themselves. I highly recommend this book!

On the surface, forgiveness is a pretty simple concept, so why write a book about it? The problem is, beneath the surface, forgiveness is neither simple nor easy to put into practice. As this varied and captivating (often emotionally moving) collection of stories demonstrates, since each hurtful life event differs, so the obstacles to forgiveness differ. Unshackled and Free tackles these obstacles, not by preaching at us, but by letting those who overcame the obstacles tell their stories.

In this book I met people who've been wronged in a multitude of ways - betrayed by a friend, molested by a relative, cheated on by a spouse, "let down" by God. Each story is short enough to read in a five minute daily devotion, and that's the way I'd advise reading it. Those struggling with forgiveness (or struggling to understand it) need time to reflect on each story in order to internalize it.

In my personal experience, I've known many fine, upstanding people who drew their moral line at forgiveness. Someone had wronged them and they simply refused to let it go. Sadly, in punishing the perpetrator with unforgiveness, they cursed themselves with a festering bitterness. So I have a passion for the message of this book. Read it yourself, then get a copy for your friends and children. Life's too short to live it enslaved to bitterness.

Format: Paperback
This is a delightful collection of inspirational stories about forgiveness. I appreciate the honesty and openness of the authors; it's easy to relate and feel encouraged because these stories feature "real" people dealing with "real" struggles. As one writer puts it: "Unforgiveness as a Christian is not an option, despite our feelings. Forgiving her was an act of my will, even if my heart did not feel it." This is an important piece of wisdom to meditate on, no matter what the circumstances are. This book is a perfect way to start or end your day.
I received a copy of this book via a LibraryThing member giveaway in exchange for my honest review.

How truely free you feel once you let go of the baggage. Holding grudges and harsh feelings towards the people who have done you wrong only makes you feel even more the victim. It is an awesome feeling when you let those things go and truely begin to live your life again.

I received this as a free download from Shelley Hitz.
Tried to download to my Kindle,but was unable to do so, so I downloaded from the attachment she sent me and read it on my computer.
This is a very moving account of various accounts of how horrendous events in differing peoples' lives and how forgiveness, with God's help, changed each of their lives as well as those of others who were connected with them.
Reading this and attending to the lessons learned from it can make a life-changing difference to your life.

The certainty in life remains that there will be others that cross our path who will need to be forgiven. Age has no boundaries for those that will suffer the sting of injustice but neither does forgiveness; for all, God's desire is that we cast the situation at His feet and forgive wholeheartedly.

Authors Shelley and CJ Hitz, along with Heather Hart have allowed a variety of individuals to share their stories of forgiveness in an effort to encourage you in the challenges you face or will face in the future. Forgiving is easier said than done but the remedies in this book will help along the way. As you read of the cries of individuals that felt chained, burdened, and in despair over situations involving murder, strained friendships, molestation, divorce, abandonment, and family issues, you will also hear their victorious endings that will inspire you in your journey. Some of these accounts of redemptive forgiveness will warm your heart and inspire you to reconsider the situation(s) in which you struggle with unforgiveness. As you look closer at God that can perfect your inabilities and gain strategies from this book on how to rid yourself of the toxic bondages that anger and unforgiveness bring, you will discover a more wholesome outlook while restoring relationships that could have been severed for years.

This book not only served me with information in forgiving others but equipped me with tools I can share with friends and others that are facing painful challenges in their lives. There are prayers enclosed that can be orally or silently read that invokes the power of the Holy Spirit and confesses repentance of sins.
