A clearheaded study of what life can do to us and possible ways to begin again. Carl A. Whitaker, M.D., author of Midnight Musings of a Family Therapist and coauthor of The Family Crucible Women and men who have been deeply hurt by someone they love often experience a pain that spirals out to undermine their work, relationships, self-esteem, and even their sense of reality. In Forgiving the Unforgivable, author Beverly Flanigan, a leading authority on forgiveness, defines such unforgivable injuries, explains their poisonous effects, and then guides readers out of the paralyzing anger and resentment. As a Fellow of the Kellogg Foundation, Flanigan conducted a pioneering study of forgiveness, and from that study, from her clinical practice, and from her many years of teaching, researching, and conducting professional workshops and seminars, she devised a unique six-stage program, presented here. Filled with inspiring real-life examples, Forgiving the Unforgivable is both a practical and a comforting guide to recovery and healing.

Soon after being given my 'legacy', I happened upon this book; it had just realeased. I can't tell you how many times I read the book, or how many pages had folded corners. Actually, I can't even tell you how many books I bought, since, so many others wanted a copy, I gave many of mine away. Finally, a friend bought me one and wrote on the inside cover, 'This book belongs to Theresa.... I will not give this copy away.' This, plus one other book, stayed on my nightstand for a few years. I called it my 'personal support group', for with it, I knew I was never alone. In the middle of the night, the listeners are sleeping, but, my copy of 'Forgiving the Unforgivable' never minded being awoken! Why am I here these many years later? Simple, somebody else really needs this book -- a total stranger. To Ms. Flanigan, I thank you.
