Review & Reflection: Finding Forgiveness

finding-forgiveness-2-front__79526-1465501101-1280-1280Stanley D. Gale’s new book Finding Forgiveness: Discovering the Healing Power of the Gospel is a gem of a book.  It is short and sweet but lyrically rendered and biblically informed nonetheless.  The book is made up of five brief chapters with titles like “Forgiveness and the Gospel”, “Practicing Forgiveness”, and “What about Forgiving Ourselves?”  Gale takes a pastoral approach and he offers thoughtful and thought-provoking discussion questions at the end of each chapter.

As he shares in the introduction, the book grew out of a shorter booklet he wrote for Reformation Heritage Books called Why Must We Forgive?  In fact, he admits that: “Those of you who have read Why Must We Forgive? will experience a sense of déjà vu in that what you read within will sound familiar.  I have taken the approach of dividing the content of that booklet and augmenting and illustrating it in greater detail.”  I did not have the chance to read Gale’s prior booklet, but there was nothing in this larger book that felt out of place or awkwardly attached as some projects of this sort do.  Gale  brings a writers eye and a Pastor’s heart to the subject and I’m confident that many will find his reflections on the subject of forgiveness to be of help.

I would like to thank the good folks over at Cross Focused Reviews for providing me with a free review copy of this book.  I was not obligated to provide a positive review.
