Forgiveness is not turning the other cheek, it is not running away and it does not mean that you condone what someone has done, nor does it invite him or her to do it again. Forgiveness doesn't mean that you don't want an offender to be punished, it doesn't mean that you'll forget the offense, or that by forgiving you tacitly invite bad things to happen again. And forgiving doesn't mean you won't defend yourself or that you must love (or stop disliking) the person you are forgiving.” In other words, forgiveness is not a sign of weakness but of strength. It's also healthy, brave, contagious, and sets you free. In this book, Dr. Hallowell not only explains why forgiveness is one of the best things you can do to heal your body and mind; he also offers a practical, four part plan for achieving it. True stories illustrate the power of forgiveness in real lives, from a wife who forgives the hurtful words of her husband to a mother who forgives the man who kidnapped and murdered her daughter. Key Features Dr. Hallowell is a bestselling author with a strong track record. In this book, he returns to his core audience and subject matter. An exceptional platform for self-promotion, Dr. Hallowell speaks to 10,000 people each year at more than 70 conferences. His new view of forgiveness as a strength, and his unique 4-step plan for conquering feelings of anger and resentment, will appeal to a country trying to sort out feelings of vengeance and heartbreak.

While there are the major situations that have been getting mass media attention such as Maddoff's vast Ponzi scheme, the gutting of America's retirement funds, massive job layoffs, extensive home foreclosures and the whole Wall Street financial meltdown, it is the minor ways in which trust is broken each and every day that can be more insidious, because they are unintentional, accumulative, and often go unaddressed. In fact, the current ecomonic collapse, when looked at more closesly, is a result of many accumulative minor betrayals. When added up there was a major melt down impacting our entire country and the world. This is a powerful example of the impact of accumulative betrayal and confirms the authors' over 17 years of research and practice: Minor unintentional forms of betrayal are the most pervasive in eroding working relationships, and ultimately, society. Betrayal is a natural element of relationships and human nature. It is going to occur. We are going to experience it. The book gives the reader permission to be human. It identifies betrayal as an opportunity for renewal instead of just a cause for destruction, and guides the reader through four core ideas: Trust is built and broken daily, When trust breaks down, relationships do not have to be history. Renewal is a function of taking responsibility. Courage and compassion are partners in the process of healing and renewal. When let down or even betrayed, people naturally respond with judgment, criticism and blame. This reflects the natural tendency to pull back, contract and to protect oneself. Responsibility is replaced with apathy and the cycle of distrust is fed. Courage and compassion are partners in the healing process because we need both in order to renew. It takes courage to not be overrun by our fear and compassion to give ourselves and others the benefit of the doubt. This new work acknowledges the critical need for rebuilding trust and provides practical guidance on rebuilding trust, healing and renewal.

A Wife’s Journey to Forgiveness was birthed by the personal experiences of the author while married to her late husband after his struggle with substance abuse. It is a glimpse of what is required of us, by God, to give and to receive forgiveness. Deciding to forgive or not to forgive, forced her to reach beyond where she could reach and see beyond what she could see and rely totally on God. While contemplating forgiveness, God took the author on a journey of acquiring knowledge and allowed her to gain a deeper understanding of what forgiveness encompass. Also, the book speaks of the personal testimony of the author; identifying where she stood in moments of her tender pain and suffering. As the author journeys through the pitfalls of hurt and disappointment that was prevalent in her marriage, she was reminded that God’s word is real and His mercies endureth forever. Ultimately, she realized that forgiveness was not for her husband, but the act of being able to forgive was for her. Through it all she acquired a more profound understanding of forgiveness. This book is equipped with many scriptural references to aid the reader in his//her quest of forgiveness. “Now unto Him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us.” Ephesians 3:20

Forgiveness is hard. But Jesus knows how much we need it. True forgiveness can be complicated because the pain of betrayal, loss, deception, and personal attack clings tightly to our emotions, memories, even our bodies. We may intend to forgive yet become stuck in our own mixed motives, others’ silence or anger, and the skewed stories we believe and tell about our lives. In The Ignatian Guide to Forgiveness, Marina McCoy delves into the principles of Ignatian spirituality and uses gentle honesty to lay out 10 steps toward forgiveness, including: • Sort out true desires • Honor anger while deepening compassion • Make friends with time • Create a new story • . . . and more. Each chapter offers stories, real-life steps to take, and a powerful prayer for healing Forgiveness is hard, but it’s also possible—with our “habits of mercy” and God’s abundant grace.
