Johann Christoph Arnold and Steven McDonald during a Breaking the Cycle Assembly. The following quotes from Christoph’s book Why Forgive? give an idea of his insight into every human’s struggle to find peace. Breaking the Cycle will go forward with the inspiration of these two great peacemakers, Johann Christoph Arnold and Steven McDonald, before us. What does forgiving really mean? Clearly it has little to do with human fairness, which demands an eye for an eye, or with excusing, which means brushing something aside. Life is never fair, and it is full of things that can never be excused.

Easy subject to talk about. But not so easy to put in practice. The hardest part is admitting the need to forgive. What is forgiveness and how to know if one has truly forgiven or sensitive approaches Arnold takes in helping to resolve the conflict within the individual. I like the advice of not letting the one who hurt you to keep on hurting you because you struggle to forgive the horrible offense and wrong done to you. This book is a must read and will help tremendously.

I have struggled with forgiveness all my life. Grudges were my fuel. I have made progress since I met my wife but now, with help, I can forgive both myself and others. As I write this, I am sitting at my fathers bed as he spends his last few moments on this earth. I forgave him last night and ask for his forgiveness. He will probably never know it took place but I will and I am thankful for that. God’s timing, as always, is perfect.

This author is my new favorites. He has a worldly and deeply compassionate view on our life as humans, the whole gamut. This book tells the stories of many people he has known personally and the amazing possibilities of forgiveness, some seemingly impossible. Like his other books, I do not want them to end. So helpful! Makes me feel more humble. A great gift.

I really enjoyed this book. In fact I ordered 3 more and sent them to three people I thought could benefit from reading it. I think everyone on the planet should read it. If everyone did, it would certainly solve a lot of the world's problems. For your own sake, you should try to forgive. For your own peace of mind, for the freedom forgiving gives you, not to mention for the person who needs your forgiveness. Forgiving does not mean forgetting either. I definitely recommend it.

Great read. It shows that forgiveness is possible but it's truly a journey. It is a book to make reference to when struggling with forgiving.

Excellent resource for someone who is struggling with bitterness and hurt feelings. This book would also be helpful for emotional healing.
Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. This book has awsome stories of people who have forgiven the unforgivable (by human standards). If they can, we all can!
