Dr. Charles Stanley shares the key to personal - and even world - peace in The Gift of Forgiveness. As he points out that no sin is so shockingly evil it blocks God's forgiveness nor so trivial it negates the need for God's mercy. He shares the specifics of how to receive God's forgiveness.
Dr. Stanley also emphasizes how the lack of forgiveness can result in separation, bitterness, enmity, indifference, and even depression. Oftentimes, an unforgiving and unforgiven attitude can become a focused grievance and can cause us to lose control.
In The Gift of Forgiveness, Dr. Stanley addresses such issues as how to practice a life of forgiveness in terms of relationships and how to make forgiveness an ongoing, practical experience. Weaving anecdotes from his own life and from the lives of those he has counseled. Dr. Stanley shows us how the peace that comes through forgiveness affects our basic responses to ourselves, other people, and God.
"Whatever your situation, whatever has happened in your past remember that you are the loser if you do not deal with an unforgiving spirit...You have within you the power to forgive, to be healed, and to be set free to live your life to the fullest." - Charles Stanley
