Do the people who have wronged you deserve your forgiveness? What about you? Do you deserve the mercy that comes with forgiveness?
Sixty-two percent of people say they need more forgiveness in their personal lives, but the majority of those same people say forgiving someone would first depend on the wrongdoer apologizing and making changes. Emily J. Hooks challenges us to take back control. In The Power of Forgiveness, she provides a comprehensive how-to guide to forgiveness as a healing practice. She makes the crucial point that, for us to be the most empowered versions of ourselves in the world, we must prioritize our healing. Forgiveness is the most important path toward healing that we can undertake. Inside The Power of Forgiveness, Hooks offers a sound and reliable roadmap to forgiveness. Through a mixture of inspiring firsthand accounts, parables, spiritual and philosophical wisdom, and practical exercises, a detailed case is made for the transformational power of forgiveness to open individuals to a more joyful and peaceful life.
The author offers listeners a comprehensive roadmap, with a series of written exercises and guided meditations, toward forgiveness. The structure she provides helps to strengthen the competencies we need to forgive fully.
As listeners, we learn that rather than perpetuating the suffering so widespread today, we can choose to create a world filled with people willing to be fully accountable for their lives and offer back something more. When we do our part in healing and releasing the wounds of the past, we can finally embrace our highest truth: love.

Great system to learn and understand
This book is great for all who wish for more clarity and understanding in their lives. I didn't really think about forgiveness prior to listening this book. The author has first hand experience with forgiveness and as she shares her personal story, you wonder how she could forgive. With this in mind, she reveals how forgiveness frees us from so many things and helps with our relationships. Her narration is good for she definitely knows the material, just not dynamic, although with the topic it works well. The books walks you through the steps, although having the book helps so much more to have all the info in front of you to assist in your success.
Exactly the Book I needed!!!
It has been a long time for me to be ready for this topic and the right book at the right time came my way. I wasn’t ready for everything in this book, which allows me to grow and work through the book many times. The book is not radical and not overly gentle, I think it is a good practical first step. Highly recommended and author s reading to was perfect. Average tone with appropriate compassion but not to sappy for some.
