About the Book

The process of forgiveness is often complicated, but it can be rewarding when completed. Forgiveness may not be easy for many, but it is essential for spiritual maturity. To do so, we must understand what forgiveness means or entails—as well as what it does not. At one point or another, all human beings, especially Christians, must forgive and be forgiven.

This study presents a journey through the scriptures to discover why it is so hard to forgive and what can be done to accomplish it from a biblical perspective. Building on personal insight and strategies, author Robert E. Gaines Sr., PhD, first focuses on the misconceptions about forgiveness and explores its meaning. He then considers the Christian motivation to forgive and reveals the freedom found in forgiveness. Then the discussion moves to the process of forgiveness and the benefits of completing the process of forgiving.

Encouraging and inspiring, this biblical study examines all aspects of forgiveness from a biblical perspective and proposes ways for Christians to embrace the freedom that it brings.
