It comes as no surprise that charismatic leaders like Jesus, Gandhi, and Martin Luther King, Jr. were capable of forgiving tremendous injustices, but what about everyday folks like the father of an Oklahoma City bombing victim, or the mother of a child who was kidnapped from a family camping trip and subsequently murdered? Readers ache with pain, seethe with rage, and yearn for retribution only to watch in stunned disbelief as victims extend the hand of forgiveness to the enemy. As poignant and unique as each story is, their common bond is the revelation that the only way to move beyond the pain is to let go of the anger.

Every one has something to forgive or need to be forgiven for. My granddaughter, Saira and I are proud to be a part of this book, sharing the message of forgiveness with our personal testimony with the ongoing journey of forgiveness.

Even little things -- people getting on my case, or whatever -- used to get me very upset. But this book is a big help; it puts things in perspective. Arnold tells the stories of people who know how to forgive (some even forgave murderers), and also people who don't. The difference is incredible. WHY FORGIVE? shows clearly what can happen, depending on our answer.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

This book gives good examples of true forgiveness. I mean the kind of forgiveness that really heals minds and souls. Reading about how others with deep wounds can forgive will help readers to realize that this gift of peace and healing is available to each of us through prayer.Was this review helpful?
