“This is by far the most effective forgiveness book I have ever read. I give away many copies every week to help those struggling to forgive!”
—Barbara Solis, Pastor of Family Counseling at Peoples Church
in Fresno, CA, the largest megachurch in Central California
“As someone who has taught about forgiveness many times, 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.”
—Dave Schmelzer, Executive Director of Blue Ocean Faith,
Founding Pastor of Reservoir Church in Cambridge, MA
“As a practicing family medicine physician, I see firsthand the effects of unforgiveness on personal health and on social relationships. As an avid reader of Christian books, I also see the superficial manner in which the resolution of unforgiveness is treated, as if a simple prayer or declaration can remove the emotional burdens of unforgiveness in a moment. Dr. Allen’s book, The Language of Deep Forgiveness, uniquely supplies a thorough understanding of the subject of forgiveness, and workable steps for breaking free from the habits of unforgiveness, using psychological, theological and scientific approaches. I heartily encourage the reader to study and apply the principles contained in this excellent work, as I have done for myself and for my patients.”
—John Erickson, MD
"Immensely clear and insightful! Anyone struggling with issues surrounding forgiveness would do well to start with Dr. Allen's book."
—John Carter, PhD
Retired Professor of Clinical Psychology
“Forgiveness, a multifaceted task that affects the very foundations of our wellness as people. The ability to forgive is not just a simple and easy exercise in saying the words, ‘I forgive.’ In his book, Dr. Allen shows us the words we use are integral to our core ability to accomplish forgiveness and be free from the chains of unforgiveness. I highly recommend that you enter into this exploration of forgiveness and learn how to address the most important aspects to yourself and finally be free of the affliction of long term offense and unforgiveness. I used his book as a study to lead myself and others into the freedom of absolute forgiveness.”
—Mark Van Dyke
Executive Pastor of University Vineyard Church in Fresno, CA
The best book on forgiveness I've ever read.
"This book is SO GOOD! I’ve read dozens of books on forgiveness over the years, and this is the best yet. I’m already feeling shifted. I think I’ll probably be throwing those other books away! Now I know why the other systems of forgiveness described in those books never seemed to release the resentment and hostility I still felt whenever the old memories were triggered by current events, or when the memories just floated up on their own. This book addresses why my heart never seemed to heal, no matter how much I tried to forgive. I’ll definitely be using its simple forgiveness ideas and language to purge my heart from the remaining resentment and suffering I’m experiencing. Thank you Dr. Gee."
—Celeste S. Magers
You won't be disappointed
"I am absolutely overcome. This book does not fail to live up to its description. So many Christian books say they will be life-changing; and while they may be good, they rarely live up to that claim. And most of them start to sound like copies of one another, repackaging similar content in a slightly different way. Dr. Gee's book, however, truly is different AND impactful, and it did cause me to understand forgiveness thoroughly and deeply - something I have been trying to understand for years; as I am a lover of learning, truth, and understanding, but have felt let down by typical church teachings on it. And just the process of reading this book has, by itself, already set free places in my heart where I felt stuck and locked up, and has brought me such an increase of peace. I look forward to even more freedom and peace as I put the exercises into practice. I am so thankful for this excellent work by Dr. Gee."
This Approach Works!!!!!!
"This is an incredible book...absolutely one of the best that I have read about forgiveness and applied to my life. In this world where all of us find ourselves in the difficult task of forgiving, this approach works. It is simple, but profound...understandable to the world, but yet Godly in its approach. I will continue to read and digest it, again and again, for forgiveness is not a 'one time thing'. Situations come up throughout our lives that hurt us to the core, and we return to the difficult, but necessary task of forgiveness. Not only will I use this book in my own life, I will use it in my Discipleship and Grief Groups. Thank you, Dr. Allen Gee, for sharing this book. I can't wait for you to write other volumes and share them with us. I gave it 5 stars, but I would give it more if that were possible. This is a 'must read experience' for anyone who has struggled or currently struggles with 'forgiveness'."
—Elsie J. Ward
"I struggled for YEARS in therapy trying to forgive some horrible betrayals done to me… I just couldn’t do it and was spiraling emotionally. This book was the push I needed to be able to say…. I can “forgive” in a way that helps me let go of my anger, and also in a way that I don’t have to accept/condone what was done. I don’t expect to be given back what was taken, I no longer want to push the person into the grand canyon… I can be free of it and move forward. It’s a very powerful feeling and gives you a lot of strength to reset your boundaries and be secure within yourself that future situations won’t destroy you again, you can forgive and move on without the huge breakdown. It’s a small book but was tremendously helpful at rewriting my thought process."
I found great relief for my struggle to forgive.
"Excellent, clear and easy to digest. I have already recommended this book to friends and family. If you are struggling to forgive someone, this book provides a path to freedom. Plus it's short, so you can get back to the business of life. :)"
Amazingly deep forgiveness book!
"Wow! No filler material in this book, just pages of fantastic insight. Now I think I truly understand how to forgive thanks to the author. This book is so much deeper than the numerous other forgiveness books that I've read. After many years of struggling to fully forgive, I finally found one that helped me tremendously. I highly recommend it!!"
—Elise Arter Johnson, Psy.D.
Maybe the Best Book I've Ever Read
"This is a life changing book. If you struggle to forgive, this book is the answer you are looking for. It's so good that I am going to read it again and study through it more slowly. I highly recommend it."
This book reaches the heart!
"This book is really wonderful - it works at a practical, spiritual and emotional level."
Gives you the how not just the why!
"I struggle with the "how" part of forgiveness. So many authors define what forgiveness is and why it is important. This author gave me practical exercises in the "how" and uplifting scriptures that don't condemn the little progress I have made. I think this short book has done more to lift the heaviness of hurt and depression than I thought possible. It's a process of changing and rewiring our thinking without giving up our morals, beliefs and sense of right and wrong. Buy it!!!"
The medicine the world needs now!
"This simple process is profoundly powerful. With the right words found in this book I unleashed a new source of positivity in my life. Everyone who feels anger towards anyone will benefit from this simple practice that allows more love to flow into our world."
"Of all the books on forgiveness I have read, this little book hit it home for me. So clear and succinct. Will be very helpful."
—Cheryl A Shea
What it’s not! … amazing book
"It was awesome to truly learn what forgiveness is not and the biblical interpretation to help your soul feel at ease with the process and journey of forgiveness. Even if you’ve tried other ways - DO NOT GIVE UP AND PLEASE GET THIS BOOK, for you and for others - He is so simple yet profound , I just cannot put into words how helpful his insight is and the way he lays it out. Great book , I cannot wait for other books of his!"
"I've just finished reading it so I can't honestly say it helped me ... Yet. But just thinking about it as I read and saying some of the things aloud - I feel better. I took a lot of notes which always helps me better understand and remember. I plan to reread my notes a couple times a day for a while. I am pretty sure this book is going to be a life changer for me."
Wow! Highly recommend this book
"This book is very helpful and powerful to help each individual person walk through the healing path of forgiveness. I had already decided to read again and share with my family and friends before I finished reading this book."
