From the moment I picked up Nan Brown Self’s book, Forgiveness: Making Space For Grace, something wonderful began to occur.  I became keenly aware of the power of forgiveness and how much God wants us to be free of the guilt and shame of the past. If you need to forgive someone, including yourself, this book offers real hope, help and healing!

Jesus takes forgiveness seriously. It is not only crucial to a healthy lifestyle in this present life but the willingness to forgive is indisputable evidence of our relationship to Jesus. By His grace, our massive debt of sin has been forgiven. It is a moral monstrosity to not forgive when we’ve been forgiven much. But it’s not easy. If you are willing to make some space for grace in your own life, the principles in this book, born out of Nan Brown Self’s own personal journey, will lead you through a process of forgiveness that will benefit you both in this life and in the life to come.

As a minister of God’s word and founder of the Heart of Forgiveness Ministry, I believe that Forgiveness: Making Space for Grace is a great book. The reader of this book can see that Nan’s heartfelt desire is to set other’s free from the bondage of unforgiveness. I appreciate the helpful tools for further study and the prayers at the end of every chapter.  Along with instruction on forgiveness, this book explains the bondage of passivity and how you can overcome it better than any other book I have ever read.

Nan Brown Self has diligently put forgiveness into an anointed and practical handbook! I walked through the developing content of Forgiveness: Making Space for Grace in my early twenties. Applying the sound, clear, biblical principles of forgiveness has now blessed four generations in my family!  Nan’s insightful process positioned me to ask the Holy Spirit to identify bitter root judgments which made space for grace to live free indeed!  It has made room for Jesus to love through me with grace and truth as a daughter, wife, mother, sister, friend, professional and a grandmother next year!  A life impacting read!
