This book really does open us to forgiveness--and this author has the right to speak on forgiving. Her abuse was far beyond anything most of us will ever encounter, yet she still takes the step to transform her world, and moves into forgiveness. Real forgiveness, the kind that comes from struggle and growth, not covering over the hurt with platitudes and pretending.
Many of my patients have experienced horrendous abuse as well, and I recommend this book often. They relate. But more powerful than simply showing that you can survive abuse, the author shows how un-forgiveness stops growth and keeps us stuck. She shares real stories, real struggles, and shows how forgiveness transformed her life. She shares how forgiveness transformed the lives of others. Most of all, she gives hope that forgiveness is possible even for you. Even when the pain is deep, and the hurt is real. She shows you how to leave it behind--and "soar!".
One of the best books--honestly, perhaps the best book--on forgiveness that I've ever read.
