Publishers Description Alcoholism. Child Abuse. Divorce. Gluttony. Abortion. Homosexuality. Sexual Addictions. Is there a place to begin again? No one can go back to the starting line in the race of life. What's done is done. But we are not tied to our past mistakes. By following God's instructions and allowing Him to salve our wounds, we can be freed from the weight of guilt, regret, and bitter heartache. In "Putting Your Past Behind You," Dr. Lutzer explains what the Bible says about God's role in the process of separating hurting and discouraged people from their pasts. Come to understand that your trial, addiction, or injustice is not uncommon to man. You aren't facing your hurt alone. God is faithfully standing ready to help, and He almost always uses His people to share in His work of restoration and healing. Many others have struggled with the pain you are feeling. And many have traveled beyond the pain to become blessed servants of Christ. Others have put a past just like yours behind them; you can, too.

Reviews - What do customers think about Putting Your Past Behind You: Finding Hope for Life's Deepest Hurts?
This book is life changing providing hope and comfort Feb 23, 2006
I think this is a great life-changing book and is very easy to understand. The teachings are very to the point but in a comforting way. This book gives you hope when you are at the end of your rope and provides a great way to look at life and shows how to change your life. One book reviewer stated this is a religious book and look around at a world that is full of people trying to do everything by theirselves and what a mess they are making and maybe a religious book is not such a bad thing to read and apply. I think this a wonderful book.
Forgiveness is the key to a functional relationship Dec 4, 2001
This is a wonderful Bible based guide to being forgiven, forgiving yourself, and forgiving others. Anybody who relates with someone else would benefit from reading this book. God gave us His great Word concealed in the Bible. This is a study, directly from God's Word, on dealing with the pain you have because of what you've done to yourself and others or what someone else has done to you.

I wish I'd known this was about God, not about helping myself
