Rethinking Forgiveness for Christians : Faith Supports and Mental Tactics to Avoid Resentment
Ever feel insulted and hurt by the careless (or intentional) behavior of another person? Many people want to follow the direction of Jesus to forgive 7 x 77 times but find it next to impossible because the hurt is so deep and they feel so wounded. Knowing that they are not forgiving can be disturbing to their peace of mind and make them feel unworthy. Ms. Hebert believes in the WWI slogan "Praise the Lord and Pass the Ammunition." Her book incorporates both the mental tactics to understand the four types of people we all have to interact with and how to handle hurtful situations with them, as well as a faith-filled attitude of prayer and living with the mind of a Child of God. Tactics for healing past hurts and forgiving oneself for situations which lie heavily on one's heart are also discussed. This book is a must-have for anyone struggling with forgiveness and anger.
