Forgiving My Father, Forgiving Myself ~ Ruth Graham

This book is such a comfort that explains forgiveness in a new and fresh way.  Ruth tells us of how she went to a prison and had a visit with a prisoner on death row that knew God had forgiven him.  Ruth then gives her own life experiences and how she has had to forgive and how it has been hard at times for her.  Each chapter starts with a story, then an explanation and then God's word as back up to Ruth's belief.

I loved this book, it was so much more than I had expected.  Many books have been written about forgiving, but this one really explains what people have a hard time with forgiveness... Ruth does a great job of how you can relate to God's word and makes you realize a different side of this issue than what you have read before.  This is a page turner of teaching and love for God and his people.  I would recommend this to everyone at any age.
