Someone you know may be missing the most essential experience of a life that is whole: the giving and receiving of forgiveness.
Understanding and Facilitating Forgiveness helps pastors and counselors present God's grace in healing forgiveness issues, even when the one being counseled has built a wall around his or her heart out of bitterness or pain.
The authors consider three specific problems:
1. an inability to forgive
2. an inability to receive forgiveness
3. an inability to forgive oneself
Through case studies and supported by solid biblical guidance, Benner and Harvey show why forgiveness is so vital to a full life, and demonstrate that it is possible, necessary, and often intensely painful. They strategically take pastoral counselors through the steps needed to help lead others to full forgiveness.
