Forgiveness is central to our faith because it is central to life. No relationship can survive without the ability to forgive, but sometimes we are hurt so deeply or so often that forgiveness appears impossible. This collection of inspirational true stories demonstrate the healing power of forgiveness through ordinary people's experiences of war, crime, terrorism, betrayal, relationship breakdown and the uncertainty of life's path. Aimed at both individual reflection and group study, each story is followed by thoughts from a practitioner or church leader, which can be used to open a conversation about what you've just read, and questions to help you think about the wider issues raised. Wherever you are in your life right now, this uplifting and practical book will encourage you to think about your own experience of forgiveness - how you might make this gift an everyday part of your life, let go of pain, restore relationships and live your life to the full.

Carmel Thomason

Carmel Thomason is an author, journalist and speaker whose writing explores how we can live out the gospel by focusing on the extraordinary to be found in the everyday. She has written Against the Odds (BRF 2014), Believe in Miracles (BRF, 2016) and Every Moment Counts (DLT, 2011) and has collaborated with the Archbishop of York on Faith Stories and Hope Stories.

This book contains some extraordinarily powerful and compelling stories from those who have faced huge challenges in their lives. They tell of how they have overcome them, and in reading them many will find hope and fresh resolve to face their own situations - or to understand a little more about the experience of others. I recommend it. The Very Revd John Witcombe, Dean of Coventry
