Publishers Description Seventy times seven...how many times shall I forgive? Our Lord answers us clearly that our forgiveness of those who hurt us shall have no end. This is one of the most difficult things any person has to face. David Augsburger understands this. He knows the outrageous cost-and incomparable value-of forgiving. He also knows this is a believer's only option. Any other course of action will not only be destructive, it will violate the will of God. In "The New Freedom of Forgiveness," Dr. Augsburger expands upon his classic writing to provide a more comprehensive, expanded, and stronger message. Combining personal testimonies with Scripture, Dr. Augsburger provides readers with practical guidance on applying forgiveness in our everyday lives. With an excellent new study guide, readers will be challenged on an even deeper level. We are commanded to forgive everything. Not just the little stuff, the minor irritations and thoughtless behavior of others, but everything. When we forgive, we are set free from bondage. "The New Freedom of Forgiveness" is an essential resource not only for understanding what God requires, but also learning how to apply it every day. Read this life-changing book and discover the freedom of forgiveness.

forgiveness Aug 12, 2009
Updated version just as helpful as original. Very good read and should be lived out by all believers.
The New Freedon of Forgiveness Apr 29, 2008
An honest and thoughtful book. It is a book about relationships and the difficulty of differences and injury that crop up within these relationships. A biblical foundation of forgiveness and paths toward restoration. A great read to come back to time and again.
A critical read... Jan 20, 2008
because there is so much poor teaching and misunderstanding about forgiveness. Gently, but powerfully, you are left with a clear recognition that on the basis of the forgiveness given you, you have only the option of disobedience and rebellion left if you choose to hang onto whatever you have convinced yourself justifies not forgiving... and the fact it is hard and painful is not overlooked. A life changing, freedom granting text!
Hard to read because.. Aug 2, 2007
Of the pain involved in it. This is a good tool to have and read and use and give away to freinds. It is gentel but direct and makes you really think about your problems.
