Despite the sinful and broken state of the world we live in, God calls His people to reconciliation and forgiveness. But how can we apply these truths when the reality of hurt and bitterness so deeply burdens our own relationships? In her book, I Forgive You, Wendy Alsup uses the biblical narrative of Joseph and his brothers to demonstrate the peace, freedom, and healing that is possible with forgiveness. Through biblical truth and her own story, she gives hope and encouragement to those who feel it is impossible to move forward.
