A Catholic Approach
The Forgiveness Book
$8.76 - $9.86

Lovingly written by Alice Camille and Fr Paul Boudreau

What is forgiveness? Why is it so hard to forgive? Award-winning authors Alice Camille and Paul Boudreau address these questions and many more by thoroughly examining what Scripture has to say about those who "trespass against us," and what it takes to accomplish the difficult act of forgiveness — all from a distinctly Catholic point of view.The Forgiveness Book asks tough questions and prayerfully investigates issues such as:

• Why should we forgive? • What to do with sin? • The importance of Confession, Contrition and Compensation • How do we accept forgiveness? • The power of forgiveness • Forgiveness vs. enabling

The Appendix includes an examination of conscience, prayers of forgiveness, Bible verses on forgiveness, important books on forgiveness, and a list of films that focus on forgiveness.
