5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Most Profound Books You'll Ever Read About Forgiveness, January 21, 2014
This review is from: Forgiving Our Fathers and Mothers: Finding Freedom from Hurt and Hate (Paperback)
Although this is a book primarily about forgiving our parents, its lessons are for anyone who has been wounded deeply by the very people who were supposed to love and protect us the most. Fields goes far beyond the dry duty and Scriptural "shoulds" of forgiveness. Instead, she tells her story like a love song, peeling back the layers of the process to expose the beauty of forgiveness for the sake of the one who extends it. Fields tells the story of her and her siblings' forgiveness of a father who was cold, emotionally absent, and unrepentant of the deep damage he inflicted on his children. She walks us through their process of not only letting go of the injustices done them, to then learning to pour out Christ-like love on a man who, to the end, never acknowledged his need to be forgiven. The end result is a picture of the way God loves us: lavishly, undeservedly, faithfully.

A beautiful look at why we forgive anyone who doesn't deserve--or necessarily even want--to be forgiven.
