New York Times best-selling author T.D. Jakes uses inspiration from the Lord’s Prayer to reveal how the act of forgiving - and learning to be forgiven - can lead you to a more joyful, peaceful, and purposeful life.
Forgive and forget. It should be easy to do - so why don’t we do it? The father who wasn’t always there for us. The mother who punished us. The spouse who betrayed us. The children who will leave us behind. Whoever and whatever the source of hurt, there is always a path to forgiveness. But too often, instead of forgiving, too many of us live with resentments and grudges that keep us stuck, robbing us of joy, peace, and purpose.
In Let It Go, best-selling author and pastor to a flock of millions T.D. Jakes shares the wisdom and guidance necessary to release a lifetime of hurt and anger and move on with the joyful business of living.
Revealing the essential secrets to leading an emotionally vital and spiritually healthy life, Jakes gently teaches the art of forgiveness as a daily practice. In order to practice forgiveness, he explains, we must first learn new styles of conflict resolution and new forms of anger management. To that end, he shows you how to recognize offenses when they come, establish boundaries, encourage purity of heart, develop trust, recover from hurts faster, and forgive ourselves for the rest of our lives. As unconditionally loved children of God, he attests, we are all forgiven. Through grace, we can forgive ourselves and the people around us. In this way, says Jakes, we can live a happier and more fulfilled life.

his voice is powerful and can really draw me in
letting go of my ego
I love the book so much I will listen to it over and over again.
Yes. Was hanging on every word
Realizing that forgiving someone else is for you, not the other person.
Too many to pick only one.
One of the Best Audio Books I've listened to.
It explains from A to Z on the topic of Forgiveness. It was all there for a person who truly wants peace.
His voice is captivating, I didn't get distracted because I wanted to hear what he was going to say next & not miss anything.
Set yourself free!
I wouldn't hesitate to purchase any book I might be interested in by this author. This book was so insightful for me and helped me grow in ways I wasn't sure I could. If Mr T.D. Jakes reads these comments; Thank you, you made such a difference and I thank God for putting this work on you. I found it in the perfect time. : ) God Bless you.
It is great advice for anyone that is finding to hard to forgive.
He has a great voice.
To forgive everyone even myself.
This book should be kept in your home and shared with your family and friends.
A Must Read
When Bishop Jakes said, "Unforgiveness is like you drinking poision and waiting for the other person to die." That is deep!
I have learned that no matter how bad the pain is, you have to forgive and let it go so that God can forgive you for your sins and grant you the desires of your heart.
I would like to thank Bishop Jakes so much for this book. After listening to this I realized that it really does not matter what happened in the past and I need to be thankful that I was allowed to get through it. Now that I have gotten through it. I have let it go and God has already rewarded me for it. Thank you again!
I love how Bishop assist his readers in taking an internal analysis of where life has let us down and how the individual is responsible for life after that pain. His voice is firm yet compassionate, filling readers with hope and ambition to be FREE from the bondage of resentment and anger! This is a great listen that includes specific exercises for a better self.
Bishop Jake's vocal tone throughout this read is precise, even and aligns perfectly with the meaning of the text.
As We Forgive Those
I love to read!!! This site helps me get through a full day at work. I love books of all types!!!
I love to listen to TD Jake's, so for him to speak this book to me was so much better then me reading it and trying to get where he is coming from!!!
I love the whole teaching!!!!
I love the way TD Jake's tells a story!!!
No, I needed to take in each chapter and understand what it was he was trying to teach me!!!
Forgive and Forget
I like how Bishop Jakes talks about the importance of not being jealous of someone's else's journey and how God has a plan for each one of our lives. The audiobook was a good reminder to hear that opportunity comes often, not just once as we are often taught. We should forgive ourselves, the other party and move forward. If we remain open, we will often be granted a second chance to make things better.
I like how he incorporated examples from friends, personal experiences and the bible to drive home the point of forgiving not only ourselves but others.
I never stopped to think about how important it is to apply forgiveness to the people we work with. I usually go home and do my best "to forget about it," not realizing that I'm harboring hurt feelings, anger and resentment; which often not only impact how I interact at work but potentially impacts my personal life. This audiobook has provided new insight on how we should also forgive those we work with, not just family, friends and loved ones.
Bishop Jakes is an awesome teacher!
I recommend this to anyone choosing maturity and a healthier mindset. I especially recommend this audiobook to overcomers who refuse to remain stuck and bitter; desperate to jump off a self-sabotaging treadmill.
In his unique and personable style, T.D. Jakes reminds us that one cannot truly move forward while nursing past wounds --not from others, nor those that may be self-inflicted.
Lots of meat in every bite... Savor each chapter and digest for full nourishment!
Forgiveness is freedom
In all things gain understanding. It is hard to hate someone you understand.
No. I would recommend sitting with each chapter for a while and actually doing what is recommended.
I'm glad TD Jakes read it himself. As a pastor/bishop and motivational speaker it makes more sense for him to read his audiobooks himself. I hate to hear his words from someone else's mouth.
Yes I would as you get the author's own inflections on the words
Can't compare it. It deals so well with unforgiveness. I experienced a feeling of something being broken off me while going though the book.
All of it.
