A Journey into the Heart of God
"Forgive and forget" is the mantra. But what if the path to true peace is "forgive and remember"? This is the radical and liberating truth shared by two authors who bridge the Catholic-Protestant divide. Together they show that true forgiveness lies the other side of grace-filled remembering, not denial-laden forgetting. Seldom the work of a moment, the path of forgiveness does not run straight and its many difficulties can leave us trapped in a cycle of hate and despair.
Forgiveness Remembers sensitively shows how God's grace can break this cycle and instead catch us up in a spiral of hope that leads into the freedom and compassion of God. This book is for anyone who struggles with forgiveness--with grace that seems so unfair--but who longs to know God's grace and continue the journey into His heart.
