Product Description

Forgiveness is very hard for most of us, especially if the wrong done against you was very painful or the person who hurt you is not repentant. How can you forgive when you don't feel like it? Sometimes it seems easier to cling to resentment rather than letting go. In "How to Forgive...When You Don't Feel Like It" Biblical counselor June Hunt uses compassion and truth to help readers learn from Jesus' own example of how to forgive. 225 pages, softcover from Harvest House.

Publisher's Description

When someone hurts us, our natural response is to strike back. Rather than let go, we cling to our rocks of resentment, our boulders of bitterness. The result? We struggle under the weight of unforgiveness.

Though we know God has called us to forgive others, we find ourselves asking:

  • What if it hurts too much to forgive?
  • What if the other person isn't sorry?
  • How can I let someone off the hook for doing something so wrong?

Biblical counselor June Hunt has been there herself, enabling her to speak from experience as she offers biblical help and hope with heartfelt compassion. If you've been pinned down under a landslide of pain, here's how to find true freedom through forgiveness.

Author Bio

June Hunt is the founder of Hope for the Heart, a worldwide biblical counseling ministry that provides numerous resources for people seeking help. She hosts a live, two-hour call-in counseling program called Hope in the Night, and is the author of Counseling Through Your Bible Handbook and How to Handle Your Emotions.

Publisher's Weekly

The title of June Hunt’s new book, How to Forgive… When You Don’t Feel Like It, says it all. The author gives logical, well explained advice on forgiveness and uses examples that many will be able to relate to and apply to personal situations. Topics covered include how to choose forgiveness over feelings, the difference between forgiveness and reconciliation, and how to forgive yourself. Each forgiving process is presented in a clear, step-by-step format. In addition to the topically specific chapters, the appendices provide additional assistance in an outline style that is quick to read.

June Hunt utilizes experiences from her personal struggle with forgiveness, in addition to the experiences of those she has helped through her work as a counselor and as host of the call-in radio broadcast Hope in the Night. These real-life examples make this book more relatable to readers, as well as show how the principles discussed in the book can be used practically. The advice given is both scripturally sound and culturally relevant.

This book would make a wonderful tool for counselors or for people struggling with grudges or resentment. I found the book to be easy to understand, though the subject matter is heavy and difficult to read straight through. I would say the book is more suited to use as a reference than something one might read a chapter or two of before bed. Pastors or counselors who might be asked questions on this topic regularly would find this book to be useful, as would those struggling with forgiveness issues.-- Shannon Potelicki, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com

    I love this book. I am a victim of child abuse and this book has helped me move forward with my life instead of being held prisoner by my past abusers. Forgiveness is not a feeling but an act of will, even when your not willing. Forgiveness is not saying 'what you did is ok' . Just because you choose to forgive someone does not leave you bound to that person but instead sets you free from them. There is a difference between forgiveness and Reconciliation. Their not the same. You can set boundries. You dont have to continue ties with people who abuse you. Your in control. This book describes all this. It really gave me some releif from all the pain caused to me in my past. I don't have to be haunted by those memories. I can move forward. This book teaches that. And the author herself has dealt with child abuse. Great testimony. God Bless!

    This is a wonderful book on forgiveness. (I find true forgiveness to be one of my greatest challenges as a Christian - I badly want to forgive, but struggle with the 'how' of it all.) June Hunt does a wonderful job of reminding the reader that forgiveness is a process, not a split-second, once-and-for-all decision. It takes time and effort to be able to completely forgive - and that's ok. She compares carrying unforgiveness with hauling around a sack full of pebbles and rocks - it will always hinder you and keep you from reaching your full potential. She also talks about taking the person who hurt you off of 'your hook,' and putting them on 'God's hook...' letting the Master Crafter shape you and heal you. Overall, a very helpful book!

    "How to Forgive When you don't Feel Like It". I have not yet finished reading this book, but am finding that June Hunt hits the nail on the head for me in terms of unforgiveness....especially in the area of forgiving someone who has grossly hurt me, and my family in a personl way. June seems to answer all the questions I've had for several years, and shows how to work through the forgiveness---One point in particular----Forgiveness doesn't necessarily mean reconciliation...I've struggled with knowing I need to forgive, but thinking that it meant I would need to associate with that person again, and I'm not sure that I could do that. According to what June writes, backed up with scripture, I see now that that isn't necessarily true. Another important area she covers is "finding it hard to forgive yourself". Her book has helped me to see that I can work through my struggle and finally find peace and contentment and no longer let the situation hold me back from living my life the way God wants and expects me to. Definitely an answer to prayer, and a God-inspired book. It's an easy read, and I HIGHLY recommend it to anyone struggling in this area.

    I purchased this book right after going through a great deal of turmoil in my family. This book far exceeded my expectations and has ministered so much to me. I was so moved by it that I referred it to my sister and my parents who were all effected by our family trauma and it has helped all of us take steps to emotional and spiritual healing; I have been able to truly forgive and feel so free. June Hunt is a gifted author and completely draws you in while teaching biblical priciples on forgiveness in a way that is easy to understand and compelling. I actually just finished the book and plan to order the rest of her books as well. I would encourage anyone that is struggling with forgiveness to read this book and allow God to work through your life to bring healing and wholeness.

    A pastor once told us that the jails and mental institutions are full of people who can't forgive. I have a jail ministry and I am always looking for paper back books that talk about forgiving. This is excellent. I will need to get some more. Once I put this in the jail, everyone will be talking about it, there will be a need for more.
