The Lord promises victims full restitution and thorough healing. He taught this doctrine to ancient Israel and during his earthly ministry, and he has reaffirmed it in these latter days. The law of Moses is the schoolmaster that holds the key to understanding his promise. It can lead us to valuing the Atonement enough to forgive and to feel forgiven.
"The mistaken notion that we are required to excuse those who have trespassed against us and that we must discount the pain we have suffered leaves many wounded souls unnecessarily guilt-ridden and comfortless," writes author Ester Rasband.
In this important volume, we learn that acceptance of the Atonement allows us to forgive those who have wronged us—not because that acceptance is a forfeiture of justice but because it is the very assurance of it. And justice, as The Promise of the Atonement ultimately shows, means restitution, restoration, and healing for the "heavy laden."
