A Bible Study book for individuals or groups, which explores how the Bible today can help us better to understand themes of forgiveness. Why should we forgive? What if the subject of our forgiveness is underserving? What is Jesus' scandal of grace? What difference will being able to forgive make to our lives? Forgiveness is part of the all new series, How the Bible can Help us Understand. These short books are aimed at ordinary people committed in their faith and wanting to live Christianly, but not brought up in a Bible-studying tradition. They prompt intelligent thought, reflection and guidance on issues that really matter to people, using illustrations from life and popular culture as well as studies of Bible passages. They are not 'The Bible has all the answers', but 'How can the Bible contribute to my understanding?'.
