Item Description...
Forgiveness matters to us and to others, but most of all, it matters to God. Well-known pastor and author John MacArthur embarks on a thoroughly biblical exploration of the meaning, necessity, and power of forgiveness. Now in paperback.

Publishers Description

Few concepts are more basic to Christianity-or more important to a Christian's personal and spiritual well-being-than forgiveness. Yet in an age in which it has become fashionable to "forgive yourself" rather than to forgive others, can our modern ways of understanding guilt, blame, mercy, and justice be reconciled with Jesus' teaching?

Pastor John MacArthur begins The Freedom and Power of Forgiveness by examining the doctrine of the atonement, the basis for any teaching on forgiveness. He then answers some common questions about forgiveness, such as: Why are we supposed to seek God's forgiveness if he has already justified us? How should we handle repeat offenses against us? When is restitution appropriate? MacArthur then presents potent, relevant biblical principles of forgiveness.

Community Description
The Freedom and Power of Forgiveness
By John MacArthur

Binding: Hardcover w/Jacket

Where there is forgiveness, there is a heart that God has touched--and a life that God can bless.

Forgiveness. Almost no concept is more foundational to Christianity--or more important to your personal and spiritual well-being. Yet in an age where it has become fashionable to "forgive yourself" rather than to forgive others, can our modern ways of reckoning guilt, blame, mercy, and justice be reconciled with Jesus' teaching?

Pastor John MacArthur thoroughly examines God's Word to answer the questions you're asking about the possibility, the power, the necessity, the freedom . . . the meaning of forgiveness--for your relationships, and for your soul.

More About john macarthur

John MacArthur John MacArthur is pastor-teacher of Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, California, as well as author, conference speaker, president of The Master's College and featured teacher with Grace to You, an international radio broadcast. His more than six dozen books have sold millions of copies worldwide and include more than two dozen volumes of The MacArthur New Testament Commentary series.

The son of Jack MacArthur and fifth cousin of U.S. General Douglas MacArthur,[8] John MacArthur attended Bob Jones University before transferring to Los Angeles Pacific College (now Azusa Pacific University). He later obtained his Masters of Divinity from Biola University's Talbot Theological Seminary, in La Mirada, California. He graduated with honors. From 1964 to 1966, he served as an associate pastor at Calvary Bible Church, in Burbank, California and, from 1966 to 1969, as a faculty representative for Talbot Theological Seminary. Then, in 1969, he became the third pastor in the then-short history of the nondenominational Grace Community Church of Sun Valley, California.

His daily radio program, Grace to You, which is now broadcast throughout much of the world, began as an audio recording ministry to provide cassettes of his sermons to listeners. They were first broadcast in Baltimore, Maryland, in 1977.

In 1985, MacArthur became the president of The Master's College (formerly Los Angeles Baptist College), an accredited, four-year, liberal arts Christian college; and, in 1986, he founded The Master's Seminary. MacArthur also received an honorary doctorate from Talbot Theological Seminary[ and an honorary doctorate from Grace Graduate School.

Nearly 43 years after beginning in the pulpit of Grace Community, MacArthur completed one his own life goals of preaching through the entire New Testament on June 5, 2011, at the end of his projected target window, stated the previous January, to finish "some time in the summer."[1] During the same interview, MacArthur projected he would complete his commentary series within another five years, some 35 years after beginning.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
inspirational book! It will bless your heart, your life & your home  Jul 7, 2009
Bought this copy for a friend. I have the book in hardback. Any book written by John MacArthur will bless you!! This book is great in helping learn about God's forgiveness of us...and how we can forgive others! Definitely recommend this book.
Too Biblical  Nov 23, 2008
I found this book too biblical with too many references and I am definite so many others who study theology will be satisfied with this book but I am someone who prefers such a topic to be described in a simple emotional tone fluently rather than a very reasonable explanation from the scripture. I believe in this because forgiveness must be touched before it is practiced, it cannot be understood or proven. This book is missing that emotional touch, and discouraged me to read it till the end.
FORGIVENESS  Oct 28, 2007
The past won't change; grieve for what will never be. This provides you freedom from the past/abusive person that hurt you. You will never get what you are owed. The worst thing you can do is not forgive. Forgiveness is releasing the person from a debt that they owe you; a work of grace in your heart,given if you put in the effort. Forgiveness only takes one. Forgiveness is the key to your future happiness.
Forgiveness is a release from the burden of anger and pain. When you choose to forgive, you choose to live in the present and the future instead of the past. It does not mean to forget but it does mean to release the negative thoughts and emotions attached to a bad memory and go on with your life. Forgiveness doesn't just happen, you must choose to forgive.

You may have been hurt by something that your partner did to you or hurt because your expectations weren't met. You may have been hurt and you don't even remember why. You may have done something to someone else that you are sorry for. When your burden becomes too great, it becomes a relationship, it consumes your life, it changes who you are and what your relationships could be. It is a wall between you and the intimacy that you seek with the universe.

When you forgive:
You relieve yourself of the burden of the past. You shed the hurt,pain,anger, and loneliness. You drop the weight and you can begin to heal.
You give the person you forgive as well as yourself the freedom to live in peace and to be able to change for the better. Repentance- must show change in direction; confess truth, prove trustworthiness. Confess fears, seek grace (unmerited favor) and let go. Talk about your loss, hurt, and feelings. If you do not forgive you are only condemning yourself to the slavery of guilt (a weight on your soul). Let go of the old life, hurt, and anger. Find where is it coming from? Don't let angry people control you. With out forgiveness you will have no boundaries. You will live in a safe prison with nothing. No one else needs to change only you. No one can make you feel guilty. If you are unhappy; you have the problem. What forgiveness is and is not:

1. Forgiveness is not forgetting.
One can forgive and still grieve a loss or feel pain.
2. Forgiveness does not deny responsibility for behavior. You have simply committed to not holding the other person to the debt they owe.
Some ways to forgive and exercise forgiveness:
1. Write down with pen and paper all of the things that you have done wrong. It is imperative that you write. Word processing is not the same.
2. Read the list you wrote, aloud.
3. Now say "I did the best that I could with the knowledge that I had at the time. I now forgive myself and go free."
4. Destroy the list.
5. Repeat this exercise for each person that has ever hurt you. Congratulations, you are now free to forgive again.
Forgiveness ... Deeper Than You Might Think  Nov 9, 2006
This book went far beyond the typical topic of forgiveness. Each chapter seemed to add a broader sense of personal responsibility and accountability.
For instance, "If we would only learn to be more repulsed by our own sin than we are at the wrong others commit against us, we would be well on the road to spiritual health". Page 10. "The real truth is that no one's sins are trivial." Page 13. These two statements caused me as the reader to pray for a stronger desire to increase my hatred toward sin(mine). "Forgiveness. Nothing is more foreign to sinful human nature. And nothing is more characteristic of divine grace." Page 11. This statement increased my desire to become more Christlike in my thinking concerning divine forgiveness. The overview of true salvation in light of forgiveness was an excellent starting point in the book. Note these challenges were in just the first 13 pages.
In chapter 2, The second sentence in this chapter confirmed what I knew intellectually but as I read it this time it hit me harder. "He was the ultimate and only true victim - totally innocent of any wrongdoing." No one was (or ever will be) less deserving of death. Yet forgiveness filled his heart at the crucifixion, not revenge. Personal application centers on suffering through the wrong doing patiently while not holding any grudges, bad thoughts, or one up-man-ship against anyone who commits a wrong against me or anyone in our family. (Matthew 5:44). I do feel inadequate in this deed. I'm a bit embarrassed to write the following but it never occurred to me that the darkness (divine judgment) that feel over the earth at Christ's death signified the most solemn moment in earth's history. The earthquake that followed was a sign of God's wrath. Realizing that my sin required such a radical sacrifice makes me want to rethink how ugly and distasteful sin really is.

I think you're getting the idea after a two chapter review, this book will be on your "Must Read" book to your friends who desire a stronger walk with our Lord.

Great book on Forgiveness  Apr 6, 2000
How many times should we forgive? This book explains to you the power and freedom you get when you forgive others. That without forgiveness we lose the wonder of intimacy with God. Also that it is hard to love others when bitterness is deeply rooted in your heart.
