Publisher's Summary

This powerful course brings cutting-edge science into the mainstream. 

At first glance, you might think forgiveness looks like a bundle of paradoxes: “Love your enemies” and what have you (Matthew 5:44 NABRE). But in recent decades, scientists have picked up where philosophers and theologians left off - confirming the many benefits that practicing forgiveness will bring you. 

Your guide is Professor Everett Worthington, PhD - who is part of the generation that first took an interest in studying forgiveness scientifically and clinically. He brings decades of experience in couple counseling, as well as research on forgiveness in the context of justice and faith, to the fore. 

Because the scientific interest in forgiveness falls under the general rubric of positive psychology, forgiveness is seen as a choice - and a good habit to get into. Studies show that the consistent practice of forgiveness reaps rewards to your physical, psychological, relational, and spiritual health and well-being. On a bigger scale, forgiveness is a central pillar in promoting peace among groups, organizations, and societies. 

This is where the rubber meets the road. How can you apply these findings to your individual situation? Prof. Worthington offers you practical guidance about interventions - devoting special attention to his REACH Forgiveness model. 

Through this groundbreaking and masterful course, you will acquire the tools to think not only philosophically or theologically about forgiveness, but also practically. You’ll find that the scientific approach to forgiveness will indelibly enrich your life and relationships.

Found treasure, will keep it. 🙏🏼

For over 3 years now I’ve been dealing with a co-worker who has been vengeful with me in a passive aggressive manner. This has hurt me and created bad feelings which had only brought more hurt. I had apologized to this person even thought I am not exactly sure of the reason but the situation worsens. This book has helped understand forgiveness is a choice that you can give yourself and others. I feel relieved and free of bad feelings. Thanks to this beautiful book. I will listen again and again to remind myself of the lessons of forgiveness. Thanks to the author.
