About the Book

Dr. Ronald D. Ramsey draws on his experiences as an organization development consultant, his knowledge of the behavioral sciences and theological studies, and his own unforgiveness challenges to lead readers on a forgiveness journey in this book.

The book is composed of short readings that draw upon Dr. Ramsey’s work as a counselor and chaplain; worksheets that engage the reader’s experiences, thoughts and emotions; chapter summaries; and devotionals based on Scripture.

Dr. Ramsey explores how to recover from experiencing interpersonal offenses and transgressions to reach emotional peace. Taking an interactive and practical approach, he reveals how to:

• appreciate the importance of forgiveness;

• acknowledge the hurt in your life from unforgiveness;

• make a commitment to try to forgive;

• transition to a Godly perspective;

• take steps to sustain emotional freedom.

The most difficult time to love others is when they have transgressed against us in some way. By learning a Christ-centered approach to forgiving others, we can move forward toward emotional peace.

Take a journey from unforgiveness to emotional peace with the insights and biblical wisdom in Forty Days to Forgiveness.
