  •     Wish these types of books would not make one do a journal- I hate to journal. Very thought-provoking and insightful
  •     This is one of the best books on forgiveness I've ever read. The seven steps are in a useful order to start working through whatever issue you have. It is more designed for hardcore forgiveness, for those acts that have ravaged someone's life.Some forgiveness books seem to focus on how to develop a forgiving mindset and let go of those little wrongs committed by others, that don't damage your life but cause resentments; this in itself is important.Finding Forgiveness is when there is a cycle in someone's life. Something terrible has happened to them and as a result they become angry, twisted people at times harming others. This is the right book for those who have to overcome and transcend great personal adversity. It is a book that is to be studied and applied to your life rather than just read and reflected on.
  •     I must admit that when I began reading Dr. Borris' book, "Finding Forgiveness," I thought it would be another self-help book that provided trite suggestions. Instead, I found a book that was absorbing and profound. Moreover, it delivered practical information that has improved my life. Following the steps outlined in the book, I was able to resolve an old family wound. I have recommended this book to several of my colleagues who have also benefitted from this book's wisdom.
  •     It was pretty good till I got to chapter 8 titled "stop running and face your guilt". I found it impossible to relate to this man and equally impossible to find ANY sympathy for him once I read that he molested his oldest son. And to have this man write about overcoming guilt and forgiving himself and being one with the universe...I could have puked. There is absolutely no freaking way I am finishing this book and I DO NOT recommend it to anyone!
  •     Healing advice for the entire planet! Dr. Borris is genuinely compassionate and insightful in her writing about the ultimate expressions of forgiveness.
  •     The tone of this authors voice grated on my nerves from the beginning, and I had to set it down a short way in. She seemed condescending.
  •     First off, I'm always wary of books written by PHD's. They tend to be overly academic and not based with real world experience.
  •     This book provides a very practical stepped process to transform destructive emotions, extreme suffering, and trauma into a powerful sense of justice and love. This book outlines complex cycles of violence (both physical and psychological) and illustrates how they can be redirected to personal and collective courage and healing. The key, however, to this book is the need to participate in the rating system, uncover the grief, and heal the traumas through the discipline of the exercises and practices suggested.
  •     Great book
  •     I bought this book for my sister whose behavior has broken up our family. I browsed the content before purchasing it and it seems like a perfect fit for her.
  •     This helped me get through anger I had been holding on to for several years. I feel so much better. I highly recommend it!
  •     This book helped me immensely. I learned steps to forgive in ways that were helpful without blame. The stories of individuals in each chapter helped illustrate how to approach a very tough subject. And Dr. Borris' suggestions really made sense. A very powerful approach! I highly recommend it.
  •     It is no wonder to me why this book was choosen as one of the finalist for the "Books for a Better Life Award". Dr. Borris approachs a difficult subject with compassion and common sense. She is able to communicate the value of forgiveness to the forgiver without losing site of the pain the individual suffered.
