Forgiveness: Overcoming the Impossible

Easy read? Yes.  Quick read? Yes.  Simple message?  Yes.  Even though this book is small and has a simple message, the truth is deep and powerful.  It is a book that I want to read and reread.  As much as I like the song, "Forgiveness", the book is even better.

Matthew West shares true stories of pain and struggle.  I could not even begin to imagine some of the trials these people endured.  The only time people overcame was when they forgave and accepted God's forgiveness.  It was not easy to do, but they did.

I struggle with forgiveness.  I know I need to forgive, but it is not a natural response.  It is God's response, and I am learning that I can do the impossible with God.

Thomas Nelson provided me a free copy of the book in exchange for this review which I freely give.

  1. Hello!

    A friend of mine just published her second book and I am helping to put a book blog tour together for her. This is book two in a three book series but can stand alone. Here's the book blub:

    The Scent of Fear by Susan J. Reinhardt

    After three years of tenuous peace, John and Ellie Zimmerman are shocked when two old friends show up in disguise. Their world is once again sent into turmoil.

    Jim Kenneman, Director of National Security, masterminded the break up of a group persecuting Christians in the Lancaster Tourist Zone. Now, they're gunning for him. At first, he relies on his negotiating skills, but his best operative convinces him that won't work.

    Monty, a topnotch operative, worked on the Bird-in-Hand assignment and helped bring down the New Patriots. A recurring dream prompts him to rescue his boss from possible murder. The agency might not be sending him on assignment, but he knows God is directing his path - one that could wreck his career, family, and cost him his life.

    Dr. Abby Weaver strives to save infants and toddlers in Holmes County, Ohio. When she meets two strangers, she can't get the tall, handsome one out of her mind. Will their paths intersect again or will dangerous times keep them apart?

    This book would be labeled under Amish Futuristic Suspense. If you would like to be a part of the blog tour, I would be happy to forward a PDF copy of the book to you and then set up a schedule of when everyone would post their reviews. I am hoping to get the blog tour together in December and there will also be a $25 Amazon GC and book giveaway involved also. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me. Thanks for your consideration!
