Donald Silvermans's new novel is a fantastic and most significant and insightful handeling of one of contemporary societies most challenging issues. He just keeps getting better and better as an interpreter of the times in which we live. I have come to believe that words and language are the ultimate expression of our creativity and humanity. Somewhere I read 'Art is a Lie That Tells the Truth.' I believe it is stories like 'Forgive Us Our Trespasses' that will ultimately contribute to the survival of our culture. I loved this book and how Silverman's thoughts were transferred from his head to my head by his amazing use of words and language. What a process!

It is nice to see another bold Author entering territories that many shy away from . It must be in the New Hampsire air.

A diversity of emotions run rampant through Forgive Us Our Trespasses. Pip's life is difficult because of his abusive Bible spouting hypocritical father. Kristen's unquestioning faith, bordering on the fanatical, leads her to an act of unintentional murder. Silverman takes his complex characters, with a few casualties along the way, from the depths of despair to love and hope. He has written a tight, gripping story that will keep readers on the edge. A must read five-star novel. Diane Brenda Bryan, author: Memoir of Manhattan, Soldier of God, Journeys

¿Good intentions and a chance meeting spiral out of control in Donald Silverman¿s Forgive Us Our Trespasses. Faith is tested and love transforms in his gripping novel of ordinary people trying to cope with extraordinary situations. Exciting and well-written, it will hold your interest until the very last word.

The courtroom scenes could well be fact and not fiction. They are so accurate and true to life that they kept me on the edge of my seat. The story is truly an exciting read.

'Forgive Us Our Trespasses' strikes a resounding chord in the current zeitgeist of twenty-first century America. The religious right and its followers have made their strident voices heard for the last two decades, and are now, finally, being examined more closely by the general population, which, up till this time, has been silent. Especially since September 11th, what is being done in the name of religion throughout the world has moved to the forefront of American thought. This novel gives the readers a glimpse into the life of a person who is moved to use extreme violence for what is thought to be a direct assignment from God. What motivates her and how she deals with the aftermath of her actions is a fascinating narrative. Silverman draws us into the lives of several families whose pasts are similar but whose ultimate choices are radically different. The political, religious and social conscience of a nation is encapsulated in this tale. Who are we and why is violence still a politically and religiously- sanctioned answer to our differences. ba
