Reviews - What do customers think about The Way of Forgiveness, Participants Book?
Journey in Spiritual Growth Oct 7, 2005
The book engages you in a journey of spiritual growth and discovers. It is best experienced in the small group environment. This title is the second in a series of small-group resources. The journey takes eight-weeks with daily exercises. This particular book is designed to explore the movement from shame, guilt and anger to forgiveness and reconciliation.
I have found the book to have a profound impact on my life. I found the journey to challenge me spiritually. This adventure is not a counseling session. It is like wrestling with an angel, you emerge from the struggle with a blessing if you ask for the blessing.
I found the journey very profound. The journey is about how we daily live our lives and our faith in a world of realities far from the idea. What a blessing this journey has been in my life. I pray you experience the same.
