Review: Finding Forgiveness:Discovering the Healing Power of the Gospel by:Stanley D. Gale
About the Book:
If you are a Christian, you have personally experienced the joy of sins forgiven and reconciliation with God. Forgiveness, writes Stanley Gale, "is a divine accomplishment to be savored and offered to others." Forgiveness is the most basic of Christian graces, yet the topic raises many questions, including these:
Is it biblical to "forgive and forget"?
Why do we need to confess our sins if they are already forgiven?
How do we actually go about forgiving someone?
Does the Bible give a place to forgiving ourselves?
What does life look like after forgiveness?
In Finding Forgiveness, you will discover practical answers to these questions and many others. With pastoral warmth, the author will help you see how the awe of the gospel dawns anew for those who apply forgiveness and experience the healing of a burdened spirit or broken relationship.
Forgiveness always sounds good, in theory but when you actually go about it, it gets complicated real quick. I have found myself to particularly bad at forgiving. I am a person that tends to cut a person off after they have hurt me repeatedly instead of just turning the other cheek.
We are told in Scripture that we have to forgive as God forgives us. We also learn that our salvation can be lost due to unforgiveness. so apparently forgiving is what God requires of us and that makes it very important.
In Stanley Gale's book, Finding Forgiveness the author takes us on a journey of awakening not only waking us up to the fact that it is imperative to forgive but shows us how to get on the right path to forgiveness. At the end of every chapter there are questions for you to think or ponder on if using this for a short Bible story or a group study.
God's forgiveness is imperative for our walk daily and for our end goal to remain Heaven with Him forever. Though it is a difficult task to forgive someone it is of utmost importance to do so and the author has given us a study to help in the endeavor.
