"Forgiveness is about using my power. Unforgiveness
is about being a victim to someone else's power."
"There is no doubt that the the need for forgiveness is paramount to any meaningful relationship. In his well-written book, Gil sets forth the simple truth that receiving God’s forgiveness for yourself and extending that forgiveness to others literally sets you free to live more like Jesus Christ. This wonderful book will enable you to be that agent
of change for healing and hope."
"Gil has identified the most important quality to cling to and to release, forgiveness. Clinging to our own forgiveness through Christ empowers us to release others from being captive to our internal prisons. This is a must-read to understand true freedom."
“Gil Mertz is a man of grace. He is also a man of forgiveness. Forgiveness is something we all need to give and receive. Gil shows us in this wonderful book how true forgiveness can transform us and free us to become the person God wants us to be. If you want to truly live . . . learn to forgive.
If you want to forgive your way to freedom, read this book!”

Sample of Gil's teaching on forgiveness
There are few messages that can revitalize and transform your church than that of forgiveness. God does not bring revival simply because we pray for revival. God shows up when we repent of our sin and reconcile with one another. It's the one message that applies to everyone. Gil is available to preach at your church to bring this powerful message.
Forgiveness is not just one of the most needed messages of our day, it is also extremely flexible to help enhance your conference. This is a powerful message that deals with our relationship with God, personal relationships with family and other people, managing our emotions, and breaking free from our past, resolving our pain, and reclaiming our purpose to experience true freedom in our daily lives.
RETREAT OR WORKSHOP
The message of forgiveness is an excellent theme for a weekend retreat for any group. The teaching is broken down into four sessions to cover a Friday night, two Saturday sessions, and closing out on a Sunday morning. This can also be taught in a half day at your church in a seminar format. It is done in a more casual setting with time for more group interaction with discussions and questions.
