How can you forgive those who have hurt you? How can you know that God has forgiven you? In this new addition to the Women of the Word Bible study series, readers learn how to accept God’s forgiveness for their sins and to extend forgiveness to others. Through personal stories any woman can relate to—about family, career and church—The Gift of Forgiveness deals honestly and compassionately with this tough yet necessary choice: the choice to forgive.
Eight sessions of Bible study cover such topics as “Experiencing God’s Forgiveness,” “Why Forgiveness Is Hard,” “Loving Your Enemies” and “The Power of the Cross.” Readers will examine the challenges of accepting and offering forgiveness, dig into the teachings of Scripture and reflect on their own relationships. Each session wraps up with action steps for applying to their everyday lives what readers learn from God’s Word. Plus, a brand-new Leader’s Guide is included to facilitate meaningful group study.
