Few concepts are more basic to Christianity-or more important toa Christian's personal and spiritual well-being-than forgiveness.Yet in an age in which it has become fashionable to "forgiveyourself" rather than to forgive others, can our modern ways ofunderstanding guilt, blame, mercy, and justice be reconciled withJesus' teaching? Pastor John MacArthur begins The Freedom and Power ofForgiveness by examining the doctrine of the atonement, the basisfor any teaching on forgiveness. He then answers some commonquestions about forgiveness, such as: Why are we supposed to seekGod's forgiveness if he has already justified us? How should wehandle repeat offenses against us? When is restitution appropriate?MacArthur then presents potent, relevant biblical principles offorgiveness.
