Dr Fred Luskin is doing wonderful work in helping to bring the study and application of forgiveness to a much wider audience. He is also doing an admirable job of bringing to light the many wonderful benefits which forgiveness brings. This is a very practical book which combines compelling research results with useful exercises which can help us forgive.
The world needs more people like Dr Luskin who teach forgiveness without religious overtones, as that can put some people off. The religious approach obviously has its place, but it is not for everyone. Someone needs to spread the forgiveness message independently of any particularly religion and Dr Luskin does this very well. His material in no way excludes religious adherents – it is simply neutral about this.
Although I have a book out on the topic of Forgiveness, Forgiveness is Power, there is minimal overlap between our two approaches. Like Forgive for Good work it also works independent of the readers religion. Our approaches are very different and the exercises we use are very different too. Anyone who has my book can still benefit immensely from Dr Luskin’s book and vice versa.
I recommend Dr Luskin’s book to anyone who wants to deepen their understanding of Forgiveness and to also deepen their capacity to forgive.
