How to Forgive:

Forgiving Others and Yourself

The Question of Evil: 

A Practical Theodicy for

the 21st Century



After reading "Forgiveness, Repentance, Healing and Reconciliation"

, I was able to apply it to my own circumstances. It covers the topics concisely but touches on the pitfalls that we encounter in real life as we try to work through the processes of forgiveness, repentance, healing and reconciliation. I think this is a great book to touch people where they are in everyday circumstances. It is a short, easy to read and very comprehendable. It speaks to the most important thing, which is our relationship with God, the primary factor to engage in the process of forgiveness

The book "Forgiveness, Repentance, Healing and Reconciliation"was a concise read and addressed the different aspects of complete forgiveness! I highly recommend this if you are dealing with issues of forgiveness and healing! Review

"Unbelieving Believers" Is a great read, I have used this to teach new members classes. Great book that covers doctrines of the Christian faith! review
