"Forgive and forget" are words that can be too easily uttered . This book breaks those words into identifiable steps that will help the person distinguish between forgiving, reconciling, and restoring. We all know that we must forgive those who have hurt us. If we fail to do so, we end up being prisoners frozen in our own pain. But do we have to reconcile with them? Should we reconcile with them? Is it even advisable? Dr. Maynard gives us some guidelines for answering those questions for ourselves. Having reconciled do we restore them to the relationship? Do we restore the unfaithful spouse to the marriage bed? Do we give the employee that has stolen from us the new combination to the office safe? Once again, Doctor Maynard gives us the needed guidelines to make those critical decision for ourselves. He helps the reader understand that forgiveness is a process. He identifies and describes each of the steps in the forgiveness process in this book. As with all his writings, Doctor Maynard illustrates this book with inspirational stories and humor. The print copies of this book have made it a best seller among clergy and others in the helping professions. It has been used by thousands as a text book to conduct forgiveness workshops. While Doctor Maynard writes from a particular spiritual perspective, this is a self-help book that every reader struggling with forgiving those that have hurt them will find beneficial. He also reminds the reader that often the person that needs to be forgiven is ourselves.

True to his writing style, The Reverend Doctor Maynard uses humor and moving illustrations to keep the readers attention and illustrate the point.From the Author:
After 36 years of parish ministry that has taken men from South Carolina to California and from Chicago to Houston, I am convinced that forgiving those who have hurt us may just be the most difficult work any of us are ever called on to do. (Sometimes the person that we need to forgive is ourselves.) Yet, the failure to forgive those who have injured us carries disatrous consequences - for us. I have spent close to four decades of my life leading thousands of people through the forgiveness process. On the other side of the anger, hurt, and bitterness can be freedom, healing, a new, yes- even better life. This book is dedicated to showing the way.
