5.0 out of 5 stars For any of us who have had difficult relationships with our parents, January 21, 2014

This review is from: Forgiving Our Fathers and Mothers: Finding Freedom from Hurt and Hate (Paperback)
Forgiving Our Fathers and Mothers arrived in my mailbox the day I arrived at an impasse with one of my parents. It's essentially the same roadblock I've been running into for my entire adult life. I was primed to read this and finished it in three days. Not only is Leyland Fields a great writer, she has tremendous integrity on topic. Raised by a father who struggled with mental illness and was mostly absent, Leyland Fields does not exhort her readers to forgive from a detached, academic perspective. She's been there and thankfully done that which allows her to empathize with those of us who have been hurt or disappointed by our parents. If you have struggled to let go of bitterness, anger, or unforgiveness with one or both of your parents, you will be encouraged and challenged by this offering. (And if you have never been hurt by your parents but minister to those who have been, trust me, you won't be skipping pages.) The book is grounded in Scripture and fleshed out by real life experiences. The study questions at the end of each chapter are also insightful and worth working through. WARNING-I would not advise reading this in public spaces unless you don't mind crying in front of total strangers. I started it while on the elliptical at the gym and had to put it down. It's an incredibly moving book.
