You feel betrayed. Someone close to you has hurt you deeply. You want to move past the pain and your obsession with what happened, but how? The usual strategies--trying to get even, trying to forget--just aren't working for you. Perhaps it's time for a different approach.
Jack Miller unpacks the different ways that people respond to betrayal and rejection and offers a new way to respond--forgiveness rooted in the gospel of Jesus Christ. Forgiveness doesn't mean "forgetting" or acting as if nothing happened, but it does mean being free from hurt and able to be like Jesus and return good for evil.
