"Nothing could be clearer in the Gospel than Jesus' command to forgive life's hurts and injustices. . . . Following this command of Jesus is surely one of life's greatest challenges."
In this popular book, which has been totally revised and expanded, the author clarifies what forgiveness is, names reasons why we should do the hard work of forgiveness, names obstacles to forgiveness, offers practical suggestions on how prayer can help us to forgive, and responds to difficult questions.
"The chemistry and grace of the 'mystery' of forgiveness deserves this kind of full treatment. If this wisdom could be heard, we would have a very different and wonderful world. Leave this book on coffee tables and in doctors' offices!"
Father Richard Rohr, O.F.M. Center of Action and Contemplation Albuquerque, New Mexico
"This book is a treasure! In a clear and engaging style, Father Tobin offers the distilled wisdom of his years of pastoral and personal experience on the crucial subject of forgiveness. His profound and practical suggestions are a real gift for this difficult challenge which all of us face on the human journey."
Patricia Livingston, author of Let in the Light: Facing the Hard Stuff With Hope
