Product Description

*#1 New York Times Bestseller*

You deserve to stop suffering because of what other people have done to you.

Have you ever felt stuck in a cycle of unresolved pain, playing offenses over and over in your mind? You know you can''t go on like this, but you don''t know what to do next. Lysa TerKeurst has wrestled through this journey. But in surprising ways, she’s discovered how to let go of bound-up resentment and overcome the resistance to forgiving people who aren’t willing to make things right.

With deep empathy, therapeutic insight, and rich Bible teaching coming out of more than 1,000 hours of theological study, Lysa will help you:

  • Learn how to move on when the other person refuses to change and never says they''re sorry.
  • Walk through a step-by-step process to free yourself from the hurt of your past and feel less offended today.
  • Discover what the Bible really says about forgiveness and the peace that comes from living it out right now.
  • Identify what''s stealing trust and vulnerability from your relationships so you can believe there is still good ahead.
  • Disempower the triggers hijacking your emotions by embracing the two necessary parts of forgiveness.

My one-star review is coming from a Christian, and is based on the fact that this book is marketed and sold as a Christian book, but the focus has little to do with Christ and everything to do with self.

This book is full of flowery, feel-good words that have little meaning, and what little meaning they have is often hard to decipher. Lysa’s writing style is very artistic, using lots of repetitive words in different forms, and so many alliterations. SO MANY ALLITERATIONS. It’s not a bad thing. She’s a good writer. But, there is so much flowery language it’s often hard to grasp what she’s actually saying.

In addition, I believe there is misinterpreted scripture throughout. One example is her use of Genesis 2:25. She writes:
“One of my favorite verses in the Bible is, “Adam and his wife were both naked, and they felt no shame” (Genesis 2:25). They were vulnerable... not at risk of being exposed but so very open to being loved. They didn’t feel ashamed of themselves. They didn’t shame each other. They didn’t act shamefully in any way. I’ve often said this was because “they had no other opinions to contend with but the absolute love of God.”(1) This is true.”
Adam and Eve didn’t feel shame because there was no sin in Genesis 2:25. That verse comes before the fall. It has nothing to do with being vulnerable with one another (as she goes on to suggest), or being “open to being loved,” and everything to do with the perfect (literally), sinless world they lived in. This is just one example of how Lysa pulls scripture to fit her writing rather than fit her writing to what scripture says.

Besides that, and my biggest reason for the one star, is that this is a self-help book. Not a Christ centered, gospel driven Christian book, but one that over and over again focuses on what YOU need to do for YOURSELF in order to forgive others, and not the power of what Christ has done on the cross for you.

The sample consisted only of sources for the book, chapter info, not one page of the actual book. So I stupidly ordered it paying more than I normally would for a book. By page 2 I deleted the book. What a bunch of crap. Yes, she talked about being hurt, but her main topic was to “think about all the good times”. Seriously? The people who hurt me so much that I can’t forgive them destroyed any good memory I might have had. Garbage. Wish I had my $14 back

I knew this book would a be a good resource to me. I came across it by accident, and I am so happy I did. A year and a half ago I found out my husband was having an affair shortly after my mom passed. A death of a parent and a marriage back to back was too much to bare. I didn’t think I was going to make it, but I refused to give up. With constant prayer, support from family and friends and staying adamant that I would make it through hard work, I am in a better place. I still have a lot of work to do, but I am thankful I am not where I was a year ago. This book came right on time and I am excited about this book.

Many of Lysa''s life experiences have mirrored my own, so I hoped that I would find this book just as timely and applicable to my life as I did her last one, "It''s Not Supposed to Be This Way: Finding Unexpected Strength When Disappointments Leave You Shattered."
I did. I downloaded it and read it through (i.e., devoured it) in one sitting. The book just happened to be released on a day that was a rather hard one for me, so I am even more grateful for the wisdom, grace, and hope contained within. I know that I will be returning to this book regularly in the days to come.
I am so very, very grateful that Lysa has allowed God to bring beauty out of her devastation. This book is so very timely and necessary now, in a world full of deeply wounded and badly hurting people.
If you have ever been deeply wounded, then I strongly recommend that you grab two copies - one to read, and one to share.

If possible, this book is even more powerful than her last. It is helped me come to terms with deep feelings of anger and resentment that have plagued me for years. As I deal with cancer and marital woes in the midst of a pandemic, I have ironcially found the most peace I have felt in years. I savored each chapter of this book at it helped me peel back the layers on all the many emotions I was experiencing and make important steps towards healing. I highly recommend.

I was honored to participate in a focus group in 2019 for this book. I read much of the material in process and if you have ever struggled with forgiveness of any kind - hurt from marriage, physical or emotional abuse, lies, family members other than spouses, other "church" folks, any kind of hurt at all. This book will help you work through that hurt so you can heal and have JOY again. God wants us to live joyful lives and you can, it is possible.

We''ve all been hurt; no one makes it through life unscathed. Whether it''s friends or family, we all have to forgive someone for hurting us. Some of us have been hurt more than others, but in the process of healing, we all need to follow the same path.

And forgiving people is probably the very most important thing we can learn, not for the person who hurt us, but for ourselves. We can heal when we leave the hatred, hurt, and anger behind. And the more quickly we forgive, the less that hurt affects us and our relationships with our family, friends, God, etc. We are free to keep growing, to let the past stay in the past and not to bring it with us into our future and poison us there.

I love that Lysa TerKeurst knows that you don''t get amnesia just because you forgive someone; it''s a process. (I''ve actually had someone told me that if I was a good Christian, I would have amnesia of the events. But in reality, it doesn''t work that way.

TerKeurst is careful not to downplay anyone''s pain while she reminds us that we all have hurts that need to be h healed by forgiving others. She''s also careful to warn us that we will have relationships that we''ll need to walk away from to protect ourselves.

All in all, this is a practical book that I feel even non-Christians could use if they weren''t offended by the spiritual content, because this is a very comprehensive book on forgiveness and the difference real forgiveness for others makes in our lives.

I read though a lot of the reviews. My review is a response to some of the other reviews I read.
Lysa is openly coming from a Christian perspective. I share her faith, so that was essential to me, and encouraging to me. I think some people were put off by the theme of her faith through the book- but again- she is openly Christian.
Others said it wasn’t “Bible based” or Christian enough. I have really thought about this response too. Lysa isn’t claiming this is a theological expose on forgiveness.
She is giving a personal testimony and sharing how God brought her through the specific pain and trauma she suffered.
I would say that her vulnerability and love for her readers IS Christ-like. She reminds us that we can’t do this in our own power. Sometimes the pain and hurt is just too deep.
One more thing I’d add... if you are coming to this book because you’re hurting in pain because of unforgiveness in your heart- spend some serious time devoted to prayer as you read through this book. There is nothing magical or mighty about the book.
But we do have a mighty God who can heal all our wounds. Ask him to help you. He helped me.
All that to say- I loved it! Thanks, Lysa for writing it!

I believe in all religions and I know they all preach in regards to forgiveness in similar ways and that is grear. As a non christian, I find it a bit too much. Pwrhaps referencing different religion views might have helped a bit. This is just a thought... the book otherwise is very helpful.
