Introduction: The Risk of Forgiveness

Forgiveness is one of the most misunderstood subjects in the Bible. As pastor Gary Inrig points out in the following pages, forgiveness in our time has become little more than a therapeutic way of detaching ourselves from those who have harmed us. Yet the heart of true forgiveness is so much richer than we may realize.

What about forgiving God or forgiving ourselves? Do we wait for the one who has harmed us to say, “I’m sorry”? How can we forgive the unrepentant? What does genuine repentance look like? These are only some of the questions that Pastor Inrig examines. If you’re like me, you will find this booklet a helpful perspective on forgiveness.
