If you are a Christian, you have personally experienced the joy of sins forgiven and reconciliation with God. Forgiveness, writes Stanley Gale, “is a divine accomplishment to be savored and offered to others.” Forgiveness is the most basic of Christian graces, yet the topic raises many questions, including these:

  • Is it biblical to “forgive and forget”?
  • Why do we need to confess our sins if they are already forgiven?
  • How do we actually go about forgiving someone?
  • Does the Bible give a place to forgiving ourselves?
  • What does life look like after forgiveness?

In Finding Forgiveness, you will discover practical answers to these questions and many others. With pastoral warmth, the author will help you see how the awe of the gospel dawns anew for those who apply forgiveness and experience the healing of a burdened spirit or broken relationship.

Table of Contents:

Introduction
1. Forgiveness and the Gospel

Praise for Finding Forgiveness:

“Forgiveness is both a theological and a personal issue. We all have a sense of what it means to be forgiven and to forgive. But do we truly understand it? Finding forgiveness is an eternal matter! Stan Gale answers all those nagging, ‘yeah, but’ questions that are on so many minds when it comes to forgiveness. In doing so, he teaches a biblically rich understanding of forgiveness with pastoral care. This little book will prove to be time well spent for every reader.”
—Aimee Byrd, author of Theological Fitness and No Little Women

“Stan Gale’s Finding Forgiveness is beautifully written, eminently practical, richly biblical, and emotionally uplifting. It provides godly guidance and spiritual nurture for weary pastors, hurting believers, caring counselors, and troubled counselees. Here you’ll find grace in your struggle to forgive and be forgiven.”
—Peter Lillback, president and professor of historical theology and church history at Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia

Gospel Conversations by Robert W. KellemenThank you for your interest in reviewing Gospel Conversations. This blog tour is now full. You can see our current list of available review books here: LINK.

How does a person learn to counsel others with the truth of God’s Word? Bob Kellemen believes that the best way to learn counseling is by doing it—by giving and receiving biblical counseling in the context of real, raw Christian community.

Gospel Conversations explores the four compass-points of biblical counseling:

  • Sustaining: “It’s Normal to Hurt.”
  • Healing: “It’s Possible to Hope.”
  • Reconciling: “It’s Horrible to Sin, but Wonderful to Be Forgiven.”
  • Guiding: “It’s Supernatural to Mature.”

These four compass points combine to equip readers to develop twenty-two ministry relational competencies—the “how to” of caring like Christ. This book serves as a practical training manual that can be used for lab and small group interaction.

Gospel Conversations is the second volume in The Equipping Biblical Counselors Series, a comprehensive relational training curriculum for the local church that provides a model for equipping God’s people to change lives with Christ’s changeless truth. This two-volume series weaves together comprehensive biblical insight with compassionate Christian engagement.

Thank you for your interest in reviewing Starting at the Finish Line. This book review blog tour is now full. You can see our current list of available review books here: LINK.

Starting At The Finish LineStarting at the Finish Line seeks to declare the Good News of the gospel in a way that sounds like “good news” to the Latter-day Saint. It does this by 1) establishing the authority and “correctness” of our modern Bible, 2) explaining how we are saved by the grace of God when we put our full faith and trust in the redeeming blood of Jesus Christ, and in His blood alone, and, 3) exposing the dangers of trying to contribute to our own salvation by adding obedience and good works to the finished work of Christ on the cross. This message, to the devout Latter-day Saint, is overly simplistic and offensive. But to the struggling Mormon or to those who have already left the Mormon faith and find themselves lost in a sea of confusion…music to their ears! God gives eternal life to all those who will but receive it in faith.

About the Author:
Dr.John Wallace was an active member of the Mormon church for twenty years, serving a full-time mission to Argentina in the mid-80’s, and holding a variety of leadership positions within the church. But in 1993, John walked away from Mormonism, owing mainly to his deep concerns regarding Mormon temple worship and the unique doctrine of the literal deification of man: “As God is, man may become.” After several years of “self-imposed atheism”, John came back to his original roots and began to search the Bible for answers. Reading the Bible without the filter of religion, and attending a non-denominational, Bible-teaching church, John came to saving faith in Jesus Christ. He came to realize that it is not at all about religion, but rather a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus. It was only after his born-again experience that John felt the compelling need to reach back to his LDS family and friends in order to share the astounding truth that it is “by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves.” John is a practicing dentist in Southern California as well as Director of Singles Ministry at his home church, Calvary Chapel Westgrove. Dr. Wallace is available to speak to churches and organizations, and is considered an expert in the area of witnessing to Latter-day Saints.
