James Wagner maintains that the most crippling illness we face today is a resentful, unforgiving heart and the intentional withholding of forgiveness -- and he suggests that people request healing prayer to relieve spiritual, emotional, and mental anguish over damaged and fractured relationships as often as they do to seek comfort for physical pain and limitations. Though forgiveness it is at the very heart of the gospel, it can be difficult to "forgive and forget" -- so how can we become more merciful in our daily lives? Wagner suggests that the answer can be found by examining the paradigm of forgiveness modeled by Jesus. Structured in 12 sessions, this book offers practical guidelines for developing healthier relationships and improving personal wellness by learning to give and receive true forgiveness. Each biblically rooted session includes questions for stimulating discussion and reinforcing key concepts.
