Overview

Tap into the power of the Divine. Learn how to forgive—and be forgiven.

Everyone knows that forgiveness is a virtue and a key to emotional, spiritual and even physical well-being. But learning how to actually forgive—or to accept forgiveness, as the case may be—is a sacred art few of us have mastered.

It doesn’t have to be that way. Writing from personal experience and her broad knowledge of many faith traditions, Marcia Ford offers a new perspective on forgiveness and reconciliation, an approach rooted in the Spirit that can be learned by anyone no matter how deep the hurt. Through real-life examples, penetrating reflections, scriptural references and practical suggestions, Ford outlines the steps that one by one can help you to forgive, including:

  • Coming to terms with anger, bitterness and resentment
  • Understanding the differences between forgiveness and reconciliation
  • Taking the initiative, even when you’re the one who’s been wronged
  • Strategies for listening “with the heart” in emotionally charged situations
  • Knowing when to forgive and forget—and when to forgive and take action
  • Ways of allowing the power of the Divine to work through you
  • Finding compassion for others—and for yourself
  • … and much more
