Editorial Reviews

Review

"Forgiving someone who has hurt you is often difficult. Nancy Leigh DeMoss outlines a pathway to freedom from the prison of bitterness, anger, and an unforgiving spirit. She believes that most people harbor a seed, if not a forest, of harsh or bitter feelings toward someone else. Learning to forgive opens the door to joy and peace. Christine Dente narrates in a deliberate and clear style, making the many illustrations and examples in the book come to life. This is an important book for those who deal with feelings toward people or events that have caused pain."

Review

It is a blessing to know Nancy Leigh DeMoss and a great joy to recommend this much-needed book on forgiveness. Here you’ll find stories from Nancy’s heart and discover that she truly has her finger on the pulse of hurting Christians. But you will also find on the pages of this book instruction from the heart of Scripture to help you forgive one another even as God in Christ has forgiven you.
-Elizabeth George, author, teacher, speaker, After God’s Heart ministry

Whether you need to forgive or be forgiven, you will find the spiritual strength you need between the covers of this book.
-David Jeremiah, senior pastor, Shadow Mountain Community Church, Turning Point Ministries

Who do you need to forgive in your life? What resentment do you continue to harbor? What walls have you put up so as not to be hurt again? Nancy Leigh DeMoss invites us to take an honest look at our lives and make the decision to forgive those who have hurt us.

DeMoss doesn't resort to simple solutions. She knows that the pain that readers may have experienced run deep. There are situations of physical and sexual abuse. There are times when loved ones have been hurt deeply or have even been taken away through murder. No, forgiveness is not easy. Nevertheless, it is what God calls us to do.

Withholding forgiveness hurts not only the person we hold in bondage but ourselves as well. "Though it may feel right, though it may seem justified, though it may appear to be the only option available to us . . . The very weapon we use to inflict pain on our offender becomes a sword turned on ourselves, doing far more damage to us - and to those who love me - than to those who have hurt us."

In addition, many have difficulty accepting God's forgiveness. "When we refuse to forgive, something is blocked in our relationship with the Father. [There is] a clear connection between our willingness to extend forgiveness to others, and our ability to appropriate and experience His forgiveness for our own sins."

DeMoss also addresses the need we feel to "make people pay." We may feel that by forgiving people, we are not holding them accountable. We are "letting them off the hook." This is not the case. "According to God's Word, wrongdoers will get their just due." Romans 12 tells us that " `Vengeance is mine. I will repay,' says the Lord." "Forgiveness releases the accused from your custody and turns him over to God . . .

This book is awesome. Why waste our life on being bitter. God knew before we were born what we would go through and with his help we can forgive anyone of anything. It is life changing, I have bought several copies and the book on CD to share with friends. You will never be the same if you read it and apply it to you life. We don't always have control over what happens in our lives but we do have control over our our reaction to those events. I can not stress enough how wonderful it feels to forgive,the book tells you how.

I felt like most of this book was trying to persuade me why I needed to forgive, as if I hadn't chosen a book on forgiveness because I already knew that. Jesus tells me to forgive so I was looking for a guide on how to do that, and what does it mean. Her definition of forgiveness includes never talking about the offense again, not even to God, and I found that alarming. If I need to talk to God about old wounds that I'm struggling to heal from, nobody can convince me that it's wrong to do so. Her pitch, "You can be free right now!" oversimplifies the experience of forgiving. I would love to say that my sincere prayers to God, "God, I forgive this person", just magically made me free, and I never felt angry or hurt about it again, but at least for me, that didn't work. I've found it much more helpful to forgive through grieving my pains and losses with God through prayer and therapy. Forgiveness is freeing, and absolutely central to the Christian walk, but this book doesn't do a very good job of guiding a reader through it.

This is a copy of my review at my blog: Femmedelettres.blogspot.com:

I just finished reading the most amazing book: Choosing Forgiveness, by Nancy Leigh DeMoss. It took me the entire month of August (interspersed with other books of course), as I wanted to ponder and absorb its truths. I borrowed it from my local library, but this is one of those books I must own, and read at least once a year. (I actually started listening to it as an audio book, which was gripping, but when the CD's skipped, I decided I just had to grab the book.)

Honestly, I don't know what drew me to the book, except Divine Providence. I never thought I needed a book on forgiveness. I don't exaggerate when I say I have been through numerous traumatic things in my life, pain wrought mostly by the cruel hands of others... but I thought I had forgiven my perpetrators. I do believe I had outwardly forgiven them, but in some ways I was still punishing those people, or holding them as emotional hostages, or even pridefully snubbing them. If they even noticed my sinful backlash toward them, they probably thought it was PMS-induced and went on their merry way. But, I was the one suffering inside.

One senses that DeMoss cares for her reader, which is why she risks telling us the truth. She maintains that everyone, even devout Christians, foster unforgiveness in their hearts to some degree, and she gently demonstrates this in her writing. She discusses the ways we subtly choose unforgiveness, the ramifications (even physical ones) of living in unforgiveness, and how we can choose, yes, choose to forgive those who have hurt or are hurting us (while drawing the distinction between forgiving someone and holding them accountable for their sin).
