In her twenty years of coaching employees and executives in leadership and team development, Dr. Tammy Dewar has often guided her clients through the stormy seas of office dysfunction. During the course of this work, she’s heard about many bosses. Sadly, most of the stories have been negative. There have been mean bosses, bullying bosses, unfair bosses, unethical bosses, cheap bosses, inept bosses…the list goes on and on. In fact, one of the main themes she’s encountered in her work is that it is bosses who are making lives miserable. But the day she asked a group of disgruntled workers what forgiveness for their errant boss might look like — a light went on. As a self-described “recovering festerer” herself, Dr. Dewar began to encourage her clients to apply a series of simple, practical techniques that would free them from the oppression of uselessly held grudges, and How to Forgive Your Boss was born. This lively, breezy, and eminently helpful manual on reconfiguring negative thought patterns into positive ones will most certainly be a great help to anyone who’s ever had a bad boss. But its intelligent practices can also be applied to any negative, counter-productive thinking that’s creating heavy baggage to drag around.
When someone hurts us, our natural response is to strike back. But God calls us to forgive. How can we let go of our bitterness? June Hunt offers biblical help on how to find true freedom through forgiveness.
Forgiving is no easy task: in fact, it may be the most difficult endeavor one can undertake. St. Josemaría Escrivá, the founder of Opus Dei, said, “I didn’t need to learn how to forgive, because God has taught me how to love.” Still, even this saint struggled with the trying task of forgiving. This collection of anecdotes from his life explores his experiences in offering and accepting forgiveness. Life as a priest in the midst of the violent Spanish Civil War offered St. Josemaría countless opportunities to practice forgiveness. Owing to an attitude of prayer, mortification, and total confidence in God, he was as immediate and resolute in forgiving in dramatic situations as he was in the ordinary circumstances of everyday life. He knew when a situation necessitated silence, and was always prompt in offering an apology when he found himself in the wrong. Readers will find themselves equally amazed and humbled by the gentle charity that contributed to Josemaría’s sainthood. In addition to anecdotes from St. Josemaría Escrivá's life, this powerful introduction to forgiveness includes a biography of St. Josemaría, an explanation of the message of Opus Dei, excerpts from Pope John Paul II at the canonization of St. Josemaría and Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger (later Pope Benedict XVI) at the beatification of Josemaría Escrivá, as well as resources for further information in print and online.

As a counsellor, author Tola Dehinde sees people being untruthful, people being betrayed, people deceiving others, and the list goes on. Since the world began, individuals have been untruthful toward one another. This isn’t new; it’s life. However, when it happens to you, you feel as if you’re the only one going through a betrayal. You’re not. We’ve all been betrayed. In How to Deal with Betrayal the Godly Way, Dehinde offers a guide on how to deal with betrayal in a Biblical manner for you as a child of God. It discusses what betrayal is, gives examples of Biblical betrayals, and teaches you how to: • deal with anger when hurt: • manage rather than overlook anger; • handle feelings of desire for revenge; • learn to forgive; • release those who have hurt you; and • love your enemies. With scriptures, prayers, affirmations, and exercises included, How to Deal with Betrayal the Godly Way encourages you to lay down the heavy burden of unforgiveness so you can live a fulfilled life in Christ.
Bitterness often grows out of a small offense: perhaps a passing word, an accidental slight, or a pair of dirty socks left in the middle of the living room floor. Yet when bitterness takes root in our hearts, its effects are anything but small. "See to it that no one misses the grace of God and that no bitter root grows up to cause trouble and defile many." (Heb. 12:15) In this collection of short articles, Jim Wilson and others discuss what it means to live as "imitators of God." As the Apostle Paul says in Ephesians, we have been called to leave the bitterness and anger of the world and instead embrace the love and compassion of our God. The authors remind us that we are to forgive others just as we have been forgiven, pointing to Scriptural admonitions and examples as they offer sound teaching on the trials and temptations of everyday life.
