    Struggling to Forgive

    Moving on from Trauma

    The example of Christians forgiving others is often heralded as one of the great signs of Christian love and yet the call to forgive can have a darker side, particularly for victims of injustice and trauma as it can add to their despair and guilt if they do not "feel" love or the ability to forgive. Well-meaning Christians can make their situation worse with insensitivity and bluntness.

    In this empathetic book, full of anecdotes, stories, and illustrations, Dr. Sue Atkinson tackles what the call to forgive really means. Exploring Jesus' teaching about forgiveness and justice, she outlines practical ways in which we can let go of resentments.

    Highly accessible and sensitive, this important book will be a means of grace and comfort for those embracing the challenges of forgiveness.
