Item description for When You've Been Wronged: Overcoming Barriers to Reconciliation by Erwin W. Lutzer...
Overview Believers who have been wronged or have wronged others can learn how to experience the freedom of forgiveness and the restoration of a clear conscience, in a life-affirming manual. Original.
Imagine walking through a maximum security prison and seeing the cell keys hanging inside the cells. By choosing not to forgive, we voluntarily sentence ourselves to diminished, pain-filled lives. Why would anyone do such a thing? Because forgiveness seems an inappropriate response to offense. To experience a broken promise, betrayed confidence, personal rejection, false accusation, injury, or abuse, is to be wounded. Such wounds cry out for justice. But what if justice is not possible? Or if it doesn't undo the damage done? What then? In this concise, quickly-read volume, noted pastor and author Erwin Lutzer carefully illustrates how it is possible to right the wrongs of your life. Whether you've been wronged--or have wronged others--he makes it possible to experience the freedom of forgiveness, and the restoration of a clear conscience.

A thoughtful overview of how to navigate forgiveness wth toxic personalities. Highly recommended for those that have been hurt by abusive or controlling people.
GREAT BOOK! Oct 30, 2008
THIS IS A WORTH WHILE READ. IT IS IN EASY TO UNDERSTAND LANGUAGE AND REALLY SPEAKS TO THE ISSUE OF FORGIVENESS. NOT ONLY THAT, HE HAS SOME VERY REAL SOLUTIONS FOR DEALING WITH THIS IN OURSELVES, AND HOW TO FREE OURSELVES FROM THE GRIP OF BITTERNESS. BEST BOOK ON FORGIVENESS I HAVE READ. VERY READABLE.
When You've Benn Wronged Sep 2, 2008
The problem with books like this is that they are all based on the idea that God will correct the injustices and that the offender should therefore be forgiven. What happens if you're atheist and there is no God?
Real Tools for Healing Feb 8, 2008
The Bible teaches that we are forgiven as we forgive others, and that it is to our glory to overlook offenses. Yet letting go and finding forgiveness in our own hearts isn't easy, even when we know it's right. Too many of us unwittingly become slaves to those who have hurt us. We wallow in our own anger and bitterness. Many times the anger and bitterness lead us to rash and unwise actions that only make the situation worse, such as filing lawsuits and seeking revenge. Pastor Lutzer gives us tools to rise above the hurt, above the anger, above the desire for retribution, tools to help us find real peace, genuine forgiveness and lasting wholeness. For me, as a practicing Christian attorney and author (The Believer's Guide to Legal Issues), I can only hope and pray that more people will read Pastor Lutzer's book before they decide to call me or any other lawyer!
Don't be a slave to bitterness, buy this book! Jan 4, 2008
This book was a major influence in my recovery from betrayal and freedom from bitterness. I was able to see that I could not be healed until forgiveness replaced unforgiveness. I will buy this book for loved ones and recommend it to all who have been "Wronged".
