Finding Forgiveness - Discovering the Healing Power of the Gospel

I just finished reading "Finding Forgiveness - Discovering the Healing Power of the Gospel" by Stanley D. Gale and published by Reformation Heritage Books.

The book deals with the theme of forgiveness very well. It rightly builds on the gospel as the basis for forgiveness. Everything we are to be as Christians we need to learn from the way God has forgiven us. Gale rightfully says that forgiveness is the currency of the kingdom. I thought that was a very good concept. He also deals a blow to those who would hold to "forgive and forget" and "forgiving ourselves". Neither one is a biblical concept.

Coming from a reformed tradition he quotes from Westminster Confession and Catechisms. He does so since they offer succinct summaries and they are available of public domain. Personally, I would have preferred less of these and more of Scripture, but the good is a good read. I have many highlights that have provoked some future sermons.

I will give to it 4 stars.

I got the book for free from Cross Focused Reviews in exchange for an honest review.
