If your enemies are starving, feed them some bread if they are thirsty, give them water to drink Proverbs 24 17 CEB There is nothing crippling than holding on to anger Anger, than any other emotion, has the power to consume all aspects of our lives, distort our sense of purpose, and destroy our relationship with God.In the passionate and life changing book If your enemies are starving, feed them some bread if they are thirsty, give them water to drink Proverbs 24 17 CEB There is nothing crippling than holding on to anger Anger, than any other emotion, has the power to consume all aspects of our lives, distort our sense of purpose, and destroy our relationship with God.In the passionate and life changing book Forgiveness Finding Peace Though Letting Go, bestselling author Adam Hamilton brings the same insight that he applied in the bestseller Why to the challenge of forgiveness Hamilton argues that revelation comes when we realize that forgiveness is a gift we give ourselves rather than to someone else He also contends that only when we learn to forgive others and ourselves can we truly receive forgiveness from God Adam Hamilton not only reminds us about the importance of reconnecting the broken pieces of our lives, but shows how the process of grace and forgiveness is possibly our most complete picture of God Shane Stanford, author of Making Life Matter Embracing the Joy in the Everyday The heartbeat of the gospel is grace With practical insight, Hamilton makes grace understandable both for seeking and for granting forgiveness I highly recommend this book Melody Carlson, author of Healing Waters A Bible Study on Forgiveness, Grace, and Second Chances Adam Hamilton s book offers clear guidance for believers struggling with the practical application of our biblical imperative to forgive It is a must read for both Christian counselors and every person who has something or someone to forgive Jennifer Cisney Ellers, author of The First 48 Hours Spiritual Caregivers as First Responders Deeply rooted in the Bible s testimony about God s extravagant mercy, this fine little book explores the Christian call to practice both repentance and forgiveness in the image of God Straightforward and practical, Hamilton vividly sketches the habits of the heart that discipleship requires in our daily relationships with spouses and intimate life partners, family members, friends and strangers Patricia Beattie Jung, Professor of Christian Ethics, Saint Paul School of Theology

Honestly, I can’t remember where I heard about FORGIVENESS, FINDING PEACE THROUGH LETTING GO by ADAM HAMILTON. If I had to guess, I would say it was a recommendation in another book I read. Don’t let the size of FORGIVNESS fool you. It’s packed with great information. Most of my copy is highlighted, underlined, notes written within, and pages dog-eared. I copied a few pages to share with others. They were so intrigued, they purchased the book themselves. Some of my favorite gems within the [...]
Very good. Deals with both the theoretical as well as the practical.
It is impossible to walk through this life without hurting someone or being hurt by someone. God, of course, knows this fact, which explains why he chose to teach us in his word about forgiveness. Adam Hamilton, senior pastor of the United Methodist Church of the Resurrection in Leawood, Kansas and author of several books, has taken a stab at the important topic of helping Christians understand forgiveness in simple terms in his book appropriately titled Forgiveness.Positives Hamilton’s work [...]
I received this book courtesy of Christian Audio for the purpose of reviewing and promoting this book. I was so excited to begin my reviews for Christian Audio. I love audiobooks and spiritual books. This is the best of all worlds.Narrator thoughts – I like this narrator. He has a very clear distinct voice. Some narrators just show up and say the words and you can tell that in their voice. This narrator sounded like he tried to put himself in the authors shoes and read from the authors point o [...]
We all must find the power to forgive and the mercy in asking for forgiveness. Hamilton uses his congregations real stories and biblical principles to bring forgiveness to light in each and everyone's walk with Christ. No matter where you are at in your walk with Christ this book will bring inspiration and yes great courage and compassion in getting you where you need to be.
We don't live in a forgiving world, but that isn't a new condition for humanity. Indeed, when God asked our first forebears, "did you eat of the tree I said was off limits?" The man blamed God saying, "The woman you gave me fruit from the tree & i ate." Then the woman said "the snake tricked me & I ate." No one said I'M SORRY or PLEASE FORGIVE ME/US. this has been the contrition of our lives: we don't recognize our sin, so we don't ask for forgiveness. Yet forgiveness frees us to go beyo [...]
I found this book full of examples of ordinary people who made the leap to forgive and make their life better. Rev. Hamilton has incite into people's hearts. He can reach places, into spaces of a person's life that makes all the difference. He explains difficult to understand concepts so a regular person can get them. He uses his own life experiences as examples. Bringing a tear more than once. Mr. Hamilton can move you deeply. Having been raised with forgiveness as a key skill I never knew the [...]
This book came into my life at the perfect time. When someone had hurt me to the depths of my being. This person has to this date never apologise for their actions, but through this book, I have been able to forgive them. Holding onto anger, frustrations and bitterness was only harming me. Not the person hurting me. Adam guided me through this process in an intelligent way that ended my "pity party".I feel so much better after reading and implementing ideas from this book. It didn't cure the sit [...]
In typical style, Adam Hamilton writes about forgiveness, particular in light of our current relationships. He offers a path of working through what it means to let the small things go and celebrate the good, to work through the slightly bigger things and is honest that the largest hurts we receive take a lot of work and even some outside help.This book reads like a collection of sermons, is full of stories and examples, and works to help the reader understand that forgiveness is more than just [...]
An Unsettled ReviewThere is some really good material in Hamilton's book. There are some great insights and some great tools for embracing a life of forgiveness. I think many will be blessed by it. However, I felt like he often elevated psychology over Scripture, choosing interpretations of some passages with more pop theology and personal opinion, than wrestling with the difficult words. It is worth a read, but there is much better material on forgiveness available from both faith-based perspec [...]
Another wonderful session with Adam Hamilton, senior pastor at COR in KC! He likens hurts we experience to pebbles (or in more serious cases, stones or boulders). A very tangible illustration of how inferred slights or insults can weigh us down and harm our physical and spiritual health, this book was very pertinent to anyone suffering from holding grudges against family, friends or oc-workers. Although I enjoyed the quick read, I'm not sure it would be appropriate for group discussion except in [...]
I started this book not thinking I had anyone to forgive and the first 2 chapters were slow going for me. Then along about the 3rd chapter, I realized that I had my own personal backpack full of pebbles that I was carrying around, holding little grudges against quite a lot of things that happened to me during the course of a day. Which in turn was making me a grumpy person. From the 3rd chapter, to the end, I found myself highlighting many passages.
I my most recent novel, Faith - Seventy Times Seven, Reverend Ada Slaton lived with an abusive alcoholic for twenty years. She was always able to find forgiveness for his wrongdoings. I searched for the answer that she found, but am still searching. Adam Hamilton has written an excellent book on Forgiveness! Reading this book helped me in finding the answer that Sister Ada found in her 58 years as the First Lady of the Louisiana Presbytery. Good job Adam!
I have to say that while I was reading the first chapter of this book I thought I'm not going to get anything from this book. I feel that I'm dealing with some forgiveness issues in my life and I'm looking for a little guidance. But I hit chapter two and I thought this author must be speaking straight to me. This will a book that I will buy (since I borrowed it from the library) and will for references the rest of my life.
Yet another wonderful book by Pastor Hamilton. His own compassion, humility, and serene faith flow through each sentence. We all need forgiveness. We need to get it from those we've wronged. We need to give it to those who we have hurt. Hurting one another is a part of being human. Being capable of offering forgiveness, mercy, and grace is a sign that God has created each of us in God's image.
Excellent book on forgiveness that is based on a series of sermons by Adam Hamilton. I had downloaded a free copy about a year ago and was looking for something to read while on spring break this week. What a gem in a small package! Easy read with familiar scripture and text that weave an interesting and enlightening look on forgiveness. Highly recommend book for everyone.
This offers some simple yet powerful concepts for dealing with forgiveness from a Christian perspective that can also be modified for nonbelievers as well. It provides help for those who need to be forgiven as well as those who need to forgive. It addresses individuals in family, work, and marriage situations, as well as other kinds of encounters.
This is a great little book, based on a series of sermons. It is clear and concise, with suggestions for prayer. Each chapter includes relevant Bible passages and probing questions for self-examination. I used it as a devotional for a week, and it was very enlightening.
Forgiveness is not an easy thing. This book helps put it into perspective. Some insight into why some people are able to let go of hurt against them or forgive themselves if they were the cause of the hurt.
This is an excellent BOOK. It's fairly short and easy to read. Hamilton makes some very good points using simple analogies. I used it to lead a small group in our church.
This is a wonderful and concise book on forgiveness. Written by a Pastor, it is an excellent treatise on all aspects of this difficult issue that everyone experiences at one time or another.
Short, but deep, exploration of the meaning of forgiveness that Jesus offers. And that he expects us to offer.
Very easy read and spelled out the meaning of forgiveness ,. Thank u
