Book Description

16 Aug 2012

It's one of the most difficult questions that Christians face, and a problem that keeps many away from faith: why does a good God allow bad things to happen? And how do we keep on trusting him when they do? Having written bestselling books on how to forgive both others and ourselves, much-loved author R. T. Kendall now tackles our need to forgive God for all the times we feel he's let us down. Written with courage, humour and above all kindness, this book is an encouragement to all who've grappled with life's deepest mysteries.

Product Description


Over thirty years as a pastor, I've found that bitterness toward God is often the primary barrier to accepting his salvation and trusting his guidance on a daily basis. I know of no one better suited than R. T. Kendall to address this deep hurt in so many lives. I'm so grateful for this book. (Rick Warren, author of The Purpose Driven Life)

Forgiving God for not intervening in times of suffering and trouble is taboo for many writers, but not for R. T. Kendall. What he writes so brilliantly not only helps us spiritually; it also helps us psychologically. (Dr Tony Campolo, Professor Emeritus, Eastern University)

R. T. Kendall is a Christian leader for whom I have the greatest respect; a bestselling author, preacher and theologian. He is never afraid to tackle the big issues, such as the reality of suffering and the struggles of life. I commend this book to you. (Nicky Gumbel, Holy Trinity Brompton, London)

Book Description

R. T. Kendall has made the liberating topic of forgiveness his life's work; now he turns his attention to the deepest question of all - why and how we need to forgive God.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 13 Jun 2013

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Great easy to read book. Sound theology and tackles the problem of pain and suffering with sincerity and integrity. Would recommend to everyone - as we shall all suffer at some point and may well wonder what God is up to in those times.

5.0 out of 5 stars Forgiveness, the greatest challenge 29 May 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Having read total forgiveness, we often forget that we "blame" God for allowing things to happen, R.T does not shy away from the difficult questions that occur when we encounter loss, pain, tragedy, natural disaster and evil. Probably the most cited reason people give for not being able to believe in God, is the sadness we encounter as humans, well worth reading, thought provoking.

3.0 out of 5 stars healthy Godward freedom! 8 Nov 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Totally Forgiving God by RT Kendall, from Hodder & Stoughton is another one of my recent reads...... R. T. Kendall here suggests we need to forgive God for all the times we feel he's let us down. This seeks to wrestle with mystery and unresolved pain. Yet, we need to be cautious with RT's definition of forgiveness in this third of his 'forgiveness trilogy', as it could lead us to complicated tiresome paths that could lead us away from an orthodox and healthy understanding of forgiveness.

God's not some sort of personalized-genie that is needful of my pronounced forgiveness. God is perfect and just yet our life-wearied hearts often hold bitterness toward him. We do need to let those struggles, pains and bitterness's go and trust God. It's a trust-matter. It remains a matter of belief in the eternal goodness of our never changing God!

Kendall understands that God does not need to be forgiven. He doesn't need our pardon or our making right, and so the title is the chief obstacle in this new work. Because we live in a fallen and broken world, because we agonize over suffering, and because of our limited knowledge; we become angry with God. David's laments and wrestles with God give us much encouragement and example in this regard, but what most needs to be let god is our own transpositions, struggles and pain that mars the image of God. For it is in our daily repentance and faith that we each can know the grace, beauty and freedom of life in God.

Forgiveness, done and sealed in the cross. Much aside from the title, this has much to offer, in RT's fulsome trademark pastoral insight and keen theological observation. Here we are refashioned and signposted well by the grace of God in renewed pathways of life.
