What are the basic concepts that we need to know about forgiveness? John MacArthur has written a simple book on a not so simple topic: forgiveness. Each chapter brings out important concepts such as...
-We need to be forgiven.
-God's forgiveness is undeserved.
-God wants to forgive.
-God provides the way to forgiveness.
-God wants us to forgive others.
I have done a lot of study on the topic of forgiveness simply because God has put several circumstances in my life that have required it. While I felt that MacArthur's book could have gone more indepth there was a plethora of great concepts to glean. I LOVED his description of the father in the prodigal son story. He brings out some details of the story that I had never thought about when it comes to God forgiving us. Also, MacArthur's chapter on the need to forgive others is hard-hitting and convicting. It will make you think of those around you that you may have a hard heart towards.
There are other books in this series, "The Truth About..." that might be worth checking out!
