Reviewed by Lori M for Readers' Favorite

Authors CJ and Shelley Hitz do a wonderful job of sharing stories from their lives and then addressing the issues presented in those stories with scripture quotes and examples from the Bible. At the end of each section, they provide questions to consider and provide sample prayer suggestions.

One of the first points the authors make is that we call Jesus our Lord, but we still don't obey him. They explain that we don't obey God because we think His math is wrong. Forgive those who hurt us? That doesn't add up, at least that's what we think.

The reader will learn the author's perspective on Jesus being the greatest mathematician that ever lived, with examples like the shepherd who left his 99 sheep in order to find the one lost sheep and the woman who poured the expensive perfume over Jesus' head and feet.

My husband was asleep when I first started reading this book and when he got up, he saw that I was crying. "What's wrong?" he asked. "God's working on me and helping me forgive," I answered. That's how powerful this book was for me.

I chose to read this book because I knew that I had a problem with not forgiving someone in my life, and I wanted to know how to deal with it. This book delivered -- boy did it ever deliver! At several key points throughout the book, I felt God talking directly to me to deal with my own un-forgivingness, and I stopped and prayed and felt the healing begin. If you haven't forgiven someone in your life, and you want to learn how to do that, you need to read this book. It'll definitely make a difference on your life.
