This book probably belongs on the lending bookshelf of every therapist or counselor. It gives a convincing, mildly faith-based approach to learning to forgive hurts that continue hurting and helps in the psychological healing process. It stands along, too, as a self-help book. Smedes uses real examples from his practice that will ring true to readers. No matter who or what you need or want to forgive and believe you can't, the book can be helpful. Smedes is a therapist and theologian known for his work in the area of forgiveness.

I like the IDEA around this book, but while he makes some good philosophical arguments for the order in which we must forgive, there are no real practical application steps for those of us who are very visual. I ended reading this book with the feeling that there were a lot of people I needed to work through this process with, but I was left hanging as to what was the best way to begin.
