Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Forgiveness and Prayer After betrayal, rejection or hurt, many people find the task of forgiveness almost impossible. In A Forgiving Heart, Prayers for Blessing and Reconciliation, Lyn Klug does not attempt to provide answers to some of the most vexing questions in the forgiveness process. (Why should I forgive? How will I know if I've truly forgiven someone or been forgiven? Are some things unforgivable?) What she does and does beautifully is offer a well-crafted collection of quotations and prayers about many different aspects of forgiveness, thereby stimulating readers' own thinking about these issues. Included are thoughts from the likes of Henri Nouwen, Frederick Buechner, Marianne Williamson, Thich Nhat Hanh, Saint Francis de Sales and C.S. Lewis. There are poetry and prayers from classic and contemporary works, loosely arranged by theme. Klug's lovely compilation will help many people on the difficult road to forgiveness. (Mar.)
