Could this book save your life?
Every one of us has a grievance story a hurtful event perpetrated by someone who mattered in our lives. And for most of us, that hurt simply will not go away.
Unfortunately, while most of us have been taught we should forgive, we've never been shown how or why to forgive. In this revised and updated edition of Forgive to Live, Dr. Dick Tibbits demonstrates that understanding and practicing forgiveness can literally save your life!
The truth is, forgiveness does not balance the scales of justice any more than vengeance does. But a failure or inability to forgive creates an inner anger sometimes observable, but oftentimes unseen that affects our emotional, spiritual and physical well-being, from broken relationships and cynicism that lead to isolation, to health issues that lead to a shortened life expectancy.
Using his years of study in the behavioral sciences, observation of patients and his own published scientific study, Dr. Tibbits not only provides practical advice on anger management and, but also case studies, assessment tests and other interactive techniques to help you learn and live honest-to-goodness forgiveness. As he provocatively shows, forgiveness is the only way to get your life back and to keep your past from destroying your future goal-setting.
