Are you looking for a book about how to forgive, rich with practical tips and personal, down-to-earth illustrations? I recommend Suzanne Eller’s powerful book, The Unburdened Heart: Finding the Freedom of Forgiveness, my favorite about forgiving the unforgivable.
The Unburdened Heart explains how to let go of shame and anger and respond instead with godly maturity. Suzie weaves in definitions of Greek words like those that mean “holding on,” “releasing,” and “loving.” Her illustrations stir our hearts to understand the roles of anger, control, and resentment, and how they can be replaced by peace, confidence, and forgiveness. I love it when Suzie speaks to unresolved emotion. She’s very down-to-earth and easy to understand.
Suzie explains how to find a safe place to heal and what happens when there’s no happily ever after. The Q & A section at the end of the book answers questions like, “How do I let go of the need to guard myself against all other hurts if the change only occurs in me?” and “The ultimate risk for me is the truth I’ll need to face about myself and the hurt I’ve caused others. How do I face that and still have hope?”
There are a lot more brilliant truths found inside the covers of this book, which could be yours FREE.
