Many people's lives are crippled, or at least hampered, by what other people have done to them, or what they have done to other people. Only by finding a way to be free of the past, can we live fully. The Christian belief is that we do this by forgiveness, and by the death of Jesus on the cross. This volume discusses the how and why of forgiveness, seeking to help the reader understand the meaning of the death of Jesus and how it helps us to forget and live. The book is presented in six chapters with questions to help groups in Lent.
