Download Audible Total Forgiveness: Achieving God's Greatest ChallengeAuthor R.T Kendall –

Few recently published books have made a greater impression on me than R T Kendalls Total Forgiveness, writes Robin Eames I have found so much in his words to challenge my own thinking and work His Bible centred approach is matched by the realism of how individuals have tried to face up to loss, distress and frustrationThis book, possibly R T Kendalls most important work to date, explains what God calls for as total forgiveness No sin or action is unforgivable, says R T and we are called to keep no record of wrongs, to refuse to punish those who have hurt us, to show mercy and to avoid any form of bitterness Total Forgiveness contains a radical message for a divided worldIf I could have only one of R Ts books, this would be my choice There is no important message for the church today Rob Parsons

    Total Forgiveness by RT.Kendall is now established as a Classic on the subject of Forgiveness Essential reading for anyone struggling with feelings of past guilt and shame, and a very important resource for those who provide counselling and pastoral support for those who feel trapped by feelings of regret and guilt The book covers the themes of Forgiving Others, Forgiving Ourselves and Forgiving God.R T.Kendal has been accused by critics of theological heresy because of his suggestion that God needs to be forgiven However, R T.Kendall is addressing the strong FEELINGS that many people have including Bible characters who have asked the question Why amidst dreadful suffering , as they struggle with God s apparent injustice and tolerance of evil.His conclusion is Biblical, sound, and very helpful He demonstrates clearly from the Old Testament book of Habbakuk and the life of Joseph and Job , that these are commentaries that explain and verify the claim of the Apostle Paul in Romans 8v28, that God works all things together for good, to them that love God, who are the called according to His purpose.

    R.T.Kendall goes through the process of total forgiveness extremely well and explains each step in detail with many references to the Bible which confirm and strengthen the argument R.T.Kendall makes for total forgiveness Many times the author might sound like he is repeating himself but this is necessary as he leads you through yet another aspect of forgiveness.Reading this book will lead to greater peace within yourself and a greater connection with the Holy Spirit within us It is all here explained relatively easily although some parts might be difficult and uncomfortable for some to achieve but in the end total forgiveness is well worth it.

    There is no doubt the author writes from personal experience, which is essential for such a topic.Total forgiveness is painful It hurts when we kiss revenge goodbye It hurts to think of that person getting away with what they did and nobody knowing.How do I know if I ve forgiven totally When there is no desire to get even or punish, when I do or say nothing that would hurt their reputation or future, and when I truly wish them well And I must keep this up for as long as I live.The Bible urges reconciliation, but sometimes it s just not possible.The author adds a realistic and helpful comment, Reconciliation is not always essential to total forgiveness.There s a lot of truth in these pages and it helps that it s written with compassion by a fellow sufferer It s not difficult to recommend this work so why only 3 stars Unfortunately, there is a bit of repetition and I ve found the same thoughts and insights in another of the author s books, God meant it for good, is an outstanding study by Kendall on the life of Joseph, but some of those same themes transfer to Total Forgiveness.

    This book has been a valuable find.One of the lessons I have learnt is that forgiveness isn t always something you just do once, and that s it As the tiresome old thoughts and arguments come back into the mind, one has to remind oneself and let it go all over again The author describes it as a life long commitment, although I hope it won t be that in my case In the Bible it says Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord The trouble is that we don t trust God to deal with the other party as we would like, and feel we need to do the job ourselves The author argues strongly that we need to forgive totally, otherwise we risk losing the blessings and sense of peace that God wants for us.I would warmly recommend this book to anyone who is struggling to forgive and let go.

    A good message but far too repetitive It is written by someone who has clearly suffered at the hands of others in some way or other but I wonder if they would have been so forgiving and passionate if things hadn t worked out so well for them and they hadn t gone on to make millions.

  7. Samuel Barber Samuel Barber says:

    Not a particularly stimulating book, but it does highlight how people have the opposite effect when they try to straighten you out through criticisms It does to offend you than help you But you have to choose to forgive them whether or not you feel like it because it is right.It also teaches you to pray that God will bless your enemies.
