Finding Forgiveness
©2016 by Stanley D. Gale
Reformation Heritage books
120 pages

Stanley Gale provides for the reader a very clear yet thorough explanation of how forgiveness is part and parcel of the Gospel. Forgiveness is a divine accomplishment. He states that Christian maturity is a matter of a growing realization of the wonder of God’s forgiveness in Christ. This forgiveness that we have experienced is the basis for our forgiving others. We forgive others by removing the wrong done to us from our sight (Psalm 103:12) and remembering not (Isaiah 43:25). Remember not does not imply that we can forget the wrong, but that we no longer bring it up to the offender or others.

Of particular benefit is his chapter on forgiving ourselves. He says that self-forgiveness is not a Biblical concept. Forgiveness is ours through Christ’s redeeming work. We must continually remind ourselves that we are forgiven. Justification is the gift that keeps on giving.

I recommend this book to anyone who wants to better understand how the Gospel allows us to find forgiveness. This book freely provided for review and there was no expectation of a positive review.
