From the Publisher
T.D. Jakes, New York Times
bestselling author of
, Making Great Decisions
more than a dozen other titles, now presents this book on
forgiveness, demonstrating once again why he is called "a spiritual
genius," a "master of meeting mankind eye to eye," and one of
America's best preachers.
He understands that he and fellow Christians share spiritual
truths "that transcend time and culture and reflect a universal
understanding of human nature." The spiritual truth he explores in
Let It Go concerns forgiveness and why it is important for
those on the receiving end of wrongful behavior as well as those
who commit acts of wrongdoing.
"Forgiveness is a big idea and it works best when it is invested
into people who have the courage to grasp the seven-foot-high idea
of what's best for their future rather than the four-foot-high idea
of recompense for what has happened in their past," Jakes writes in
Let It Go. This book explores forgiveness as an idea and
at the same time offers specific and clear actions for readers who
seek to apply the idea in their daily lives. Offenses are a part of
life, he says. But conflicts can be resolved and relationships do
have a future, if we learn how to forgive. No matter how great or
small the injustice, Jakes shows how the matter can be put behind
you for the sake of a better tomorrow if you can Let It
