"When we forgive, that's when we're most like God"
"Forgiveness is such a divine blessing and the biblical truths that Gil brings out are profound, but the steps and tools he provides are so simple. Gil’s book is for anyone who needs to give or receive forgiveness. If you or someone you love wants to experience the power and freedom of forgiveness, I highly recommend you check out his book. Forgive Your Way to Freedom."
"I encourage you to get a copy of this practical and helpful book for yourself. You may also want to share a copy with someone you know who needs this message. You will both be better off for it."
“When we think of forgiveness, we often focus too much on the challenges and not enough on the benefits. This is what I appreciate so much about Forgive Your Way to Freedom. Gil helps guide the reader through the journey with practical steps but he also illustrates the reward at the end, which is freedom. When we are empowered by freedom, there is no limit to what we can do!”
"Most people know they should forgive, but when was the last time you can remember being taught how to forgive? Gil Mertz provides just such a road map filled with practical advice on the process of forgiving. This book is a must-read if you want to discover freedom from life’s difficult moments that only forgiveness can bring."
