Description

From the author of the beloved Miller's Creek novels (Christian fiction) comes a topical Bible study on forgiveness.

Forgiveness is a crucial part of the Christian faith and also a way in which we can experience strong and healthy relationships with our fellow man. Unfortunately, the truth about forgiveness--as presented in God's Word--has been somewhat tarnished by inaccurate human philosophy.

The destroyer wants us confused and hurting. The lack of forgiveness in human relationships--even those within Christian circles--is written in the scars upon human hearts, souls, and minds.

But Jesus always taught the need for forgiveness, loving others, just mercy, and justice redeemed by grace. Living by His command to forgive you can declutter your mind and heart through the removal of hatred, malice, grudges, resentment, and bitterness. You can also experience reconciliation and restoration in your relationships with others.

This Bible study guide and workbook is appropriate for either individual or small group study and includes the following:

•what forgiveness is and what it isn't
•God's role in the process of forgiveness
•what Jesus accomplished at the cross for each of us
•our mandate to forgive as we've been forgiven
•what gets in the way of forgiving others
•how to truly forgive the inexcusable

"Forgiveness is the fragrance the violet sheds on the heel that has crushed it." -Mark Twain

This Bible study guide was written to compliment the spiritual theme of forgiveness in A BRIDGE UNBROKEN, Christian fiction and the fifth stand-alone book in the Miller's Creek novels.

WHAT READERS ARE SAYING:
"This book was perfect for a study group in church. Forgiveness is a huge part of being a Christian, and Christ tells us to forgive over and over again."

"A great read about something most of us can use. Ultimate forgiveness."

"This caused me to pray and forgive decades old grudges."

"This was a great study on forgiveness! The book is pretty short but rich in content with tons of scripture references. Highly recommended!!"

"The thing I loved the most was all the Scriptures that Cathy showed that talks about forgiveness and how important it is to God that we forgive. Sometimes, those Scriptures hurt (we must forgive to be forgiven) and brought light to areas of my life where I have been harboring unforgiveness. My copy is so highlighted because there was so much great information about forgiveness! The first chapter goes into what forgiveness is and what it isn't. This was especially helpful to me because, like others, I have allowed the world's definition of Christian forgiveness to creep into my belief system. The other thing I really felt was really helpful was at the end of each chapter, there is a conclusion where she asks you to personalize what you've learned in the chapter. I highly recommend this Bible study! It would be perfect for a small group, a Women's Ministry or just to do it on your own, as I did."

"While some books on forgiveness can get bogged down with detailed information, this book reads simple enough that it cuts to the heart of the matter, quickly and effectively providing helpful material for the reader to apply to his or her life."
