This title caught my eye when browsing online about a year ago. I was going through a difficult situation with my adoptive dad that has brought hurt to our relationship since he decided to no longer be family. I saved it in my wish list for Amazon to pick up and read at some point. I then saw it again on BookLook Bloggers and couldn't wait to review it and hopefully gain some more wisdom in how to deal with hurt.
The book is about:
walk with them as they explore the following questions:
- What does the Bible say about forgiveness? Why must we forgive at all?
- How do we honor those who act dishonorably toward us, especially when those
people are as influential as our parents? Can we ever break free from the “sins
of our fathers”?
- What does forgiveness look like in the lives of real parents and
children? Does forgiveness mean I have to let an estranged parent back into my
life? Is it possible to forgive a parent who has passed away?
combined with a fresh look at the Scriptures, Forgiving Our Fathers and
Mothers illustrates and instructs in the practice of authentic forgiveness,
leading you away from hate and hurt toward healing, hope, and freedom.
