-The inability to receive God's forgiveness
-The inability to forgive others
-The inability to accept ourselves

"This book is a classic of Christian psychology and spiritual theology."--Richard Lovelace, author of The Dynamics of Spiritual Life

"A balanced blend of scriptural truth, sound theology, and theraputic insight--made unusually clear by relevant illustrations."--David Seamands, author of Healing for Damaged Emotions

    Time to shake the dust off your Bible

    Payne's gift to help inspire spiritual progress in all who read her is greatly demonstrated in this read. The best part is that applying her practical insight REALLY does work. Second best is her bibliography - a treasury of creative wealth.
