In Forgiveness: Unleashing a Transformational Process Larry D. Ellis addresses one of the most challenging topics, the receiving and giving of forgiveness. He addresses the historic Christian perspective of forgiveness being the sole responsibility of the one who has been hurt or offended. Ellis puts forth an extensive development from ancient documents, pivotal biblical passages, especially Jesus' Sermon on the Mount, and a number of traumatizing realities of the current time. His chapter on the Fictional Myths of Forgiveness is particularly insightful, exposing a number of cultural perspectives that presents a counterfeit immitation of forgiveness, which will never lead to full reconciliation between persons in great conflict. The extensive study guide, included in the book, will greatly facilitate the reader to put what is read into practice in their lives. This book is good for both individual and group reading and discussion.
