“Forgiveness is one of the most godlike things that we can do, yet it is so much easier in theory than in practice. Fr. Scott Hurd has provided a wonderful manual concerning the need for and the procedures to forgive.”
— Fr. Jude Winkler, OFM Conv., Author of I Cry to You, O Lord!
“I found myself reflecting on the important issues Fr. Hurd raises on almost every page, and that reflection continues long after the reading is done.”
— Deacon William T. Ditewig, PhD, Professor of Theology and Religious Studies, Saint Leo University
Fr. Hurd wraps Scripture, theology, and story together to offer readers the gift of a thoughtful examination of the process of forgiveness. Forgiveness: A Catholic Approach is a resource for preachers and spiritual directors and a manual for people looking for guidance in taking the first steps.
— Susan Timoney, PhD, Executive Director Department of Evangelization and Family Life, Archdiocese of Washington
Drawing from real life examples, Fr. Hurd sets before us the self-inflicted misery of a constricted, unforgiving heart and the deep joy and spacious happiness that forgiveness bestows. It is a very wise and practical book.
