A Trusted Guide through the Raging Storm
Sometimes a trusted guide is what we need to get us through the raging storm of a wounded soul. This bestselling book is the true breakthrough guide that will help you work through the trauma to find healing, inner peace, and happiness. Unlike superficial guides that provide only trite answers, Dr. Allen’s work is a practical roadmap to unraveling the core causes of being unable to forgive. It is a deep multidisciplinary exploration of how faith, spirituality, and the sciences of the human mind intersect at the crossroads of empowering forgiveness. It provides powerful unique insights and tools to help you forgive deeply and quickly so you can move on with your life to be freer and happier.
Pastors and therapists have found this book to be an invaluable resource for their churches and clients. It has produced dramatic forgiveness breakthroughs, quickly healing deep hurts and long estranged relationships. Today, Dr. Allen’s groundbreaking work is actively used by over 300 pastors at some of the largest churches in the U.S. and growing rapidly. Although written from a Christian worldview, it can benefit readers from any background or religious tradition.
Are you seeking healing from the wounds that haunt you? Do you waste precious time and energy thinking about long past hurts and injustices?
Dr. Allen will help you by answering key underlying questions such as, “How does the precise language you use to think about forgiveness in your mind affect how deeply you actually forgive in your heart?” and “What can you do when forgiveness seems to require you to accept those offenders you consider unacceptable?”
“Dr. Allen gave me tools I’ve never considered to the point that I took several
moments to freshly forgive several people. If you feel stuck in moving on from
ways you’ve been hurt, or if you teach others how to forgive, I’m confident
you’ll find fresh ways forward here.”
