The word “forgive” is not, as many people think, one dimensional. It doesn’t just mean “let go and let God”—a challenge for anyone who has experienced traumatizing abuse, injustice, neglect or abandonment. In The Unburdened Heart, Suzanne Eller explores with readers the multiple facets of forgiveness found in the Scriptures, focusing in particular on the idea of “leaving one place to go to another.”
Believers can, with the help of God’s Spirit, leave pain to find wholeness, leave regret to find purpose and leave the past to live fully in the present. The Unburdened Heart uses the power of story along with biblical teaching to lead readers into healing and a forgiving lifestyle.
