Emotional baggage from past offenses will remove the joy from your life and place a barrier between you, God, and others. Reconciliation is a solution but may not always be possible. Forgiveness, however, is an option which can work in every situation.

This is my "go to" book when working with people through the hard issues of life. Augsburger does an excellent job dealing with the role of forgiveness in life. For those holding on to reconciliation and fair compensation, he reminds us that in the most grievous offenses, there is little or no ability of the offender to "fix" or "compensate" the offended sufficiently. The World's legal systems try to "fix" and "compensate" injured parties and, in doing so, devalue them. God, through Jesus Christ, has provided a different solution, one that satisfies our longing for justice and compassion. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0802432921, Paperback)

Seventy times seven...how many times shall I forgive? Our Lord answers us clearly that our forgiveness of those who hurt us shall have no end. This is one of the most difficult things any person has to face. David Augsburger understands this. He knows the outrageous cost-and incomparable value-of forgiving. He also knows this is a believer's only option. Any other course of action will not only be destructive, it will violate the will of God.

In The New Freedom of Forgiveness, Dr. Augsburger expands upon his classic writing to provide a more comprehensive, expanded, and stronger message. Combining personal testimonies with Scripture, Dr. Augsburger provides readers with practical guidance on applying forgiveness in our everyday lives. With an excellent new study guide, readers will be challenged on an even deeper level. We are commanded to forgive everything. Not just the little stuff, the minor irritations and thoughtless behavior of others, but everything. When we forgive, we are set free from bondage. The New Freedom of Forgiveness is an essential resource not only for understanding what God requires, but also learning how to apply it every day. Read this life-changing book and discover the freedom of forgiveness.
