Many Christians live with unforgiveness in their heart, sometimes unknowingly. Perhaps they realise that “something” is wrong, but don’t know exactly how to deal with it.
Other Christians wonder why they never seem to get the breakthrough in God they are looking for; they feel they have tried everything and nothing works. They may feel that they have forgiven others for any wrongdoing or offence caused to them, but have often not gone on to “release” that person’s debt to them.

This is the BEST book I have read on the very important subject of forgiveness. Every pastor should have this book in their personal library. It is that good a read and that fundamental for liviing the victorious Christian life in Christ Jesus.
I was recommended this book by a counsellor I was seeing and helped me to realise that forgiveness is an action and not passive “sucking up pain” as I had done before. 10 years after buying I still use what I learned from this invaluable book.
I am so glad to see this book back in print. It is the only biblically sound book I know that really explains how to let go of unforgiveness and why we all need to.
I have given all my previous copies away and I had been scouring the web for months trying to find this book again….to re-read myself and to give some copies to some friends overseas that wanted it. If I had to choose just one book to have (besides the bible) …this would be it.

This would be valuable on every church’s bookshelf’. It challenges us to look honestly at our own ideas and experiences of forgiveness. Perhaps we have said the words but still feel we are owed. When we release ourselves and others from that debt then, and only then will we be free.
Probably the most practical book on forgiveness ever written
Joff Day uses the words forgive and release to convey one Biblical concept – forgiveness. Jesus taught clearly that to forgive is also to release. Sadly, there are many people who do not under stand this. Some have been taught by well meaning people that even though they may have forgiven someone for an issue, if they are still hurting over the issue, they will have to forgive them again and again (for the same issue) until the hurt finally disappears.
He shows that if Jesus’ teaching on forgiveness was to be understood correctly, they would see that they had not forgiven ‘from their heart’ in the first place. They may have made a mental decision to ‘forgive’, but their heart had not ‘released’ the offender from the debt. That is why they still hurt concerning the issue.
There is much hurt and mistrust even in the Church today. Some of it lingers on because the principles of forgiveness have not been fully understood. This book seeks to explain forgiveness, not create a ‘forgiveness plus …’ gospel. For many people I have spoken to, understanding forgiveness as ‘forgiving and releasing’, has helped them resolve many unresolved hurts from their past, and come into a new freedom. It has also helped them make a commitment for the future to forgive as Jesus taught, whatever circumstances come their way.
If you have ever had cause to forgive anyone or think you may need to now or in the future, then this book is for you!

bought it because i’d already read it and thought everyone i know needs to read it too
This is a book that really can change lives. The simple premise that there is more to forgiveness than just forgiving – that we need to ‘release’ the debt we are owed, knowing that it can never be repaid has incredible power. You’ll need to buy at least two copies – you are bound to want to share it with others!
