Review

'I am delighted to let you know that my dear friend Dr R.T.Kendall will be speaking in England to introduce his book Totally Forgiving Ourselves.

I read this book in manuscript and was deeply impacted. I consider R.T.Kendall's book to be one of the most important I have ever read. I believe this message is one we urgently need to receive for our own well-being and the well-being of others

(Canon J.John)

Format: Paperback
In this warm and scripturally faithful work, the author explains at the outset: `we all need God's forgiveness of all our sins. This is why Jesus died on the cross.' Throughout the book he reinforces the Biblical truth that forgiveness of sin is only through the atoning sacrifice of Jesus. He then goes on to define what he means by totally forgiving ourselves: `It is accepting God's forgiveness of all our past sins and failures so completely that we equally let ourselves off the hook for our pasts as God Himself has done.'

Dr Kendall states his view in the introduction that this is achieved mostly by applying good theology and loving pastoral care. To believers who trust Christ alone for forgiveness but remain tormented by failure and remorse, he explains `as a pastor and theologian', not as a mental health practitioner, how to address their anguish God's way and move on.

In the course of the book, he teases out the differences between true and false guilt, emphasises the Holy Spirit's work in conviction of sin, and shows that the grace of repentance is a gift from God. He explores the twin sins of self-pity and self-righteousness as obstacles to spiritual progress, and charts the failures and loving restoration of some spiritual giants: David, Jacob, Peter and Paul. There is practical advice about accepting ourselves, which includes due cautions, and a useful chapter on resisting the devil.

Agreeing with his predecessor at Westminster Chapel, Dr Martyn Lloyd-Jones, who said `God never oppresses us' Dr Kendall quotes many scriptures throughout his book in support of this sentiment, scriptures which encourage us to appropriate the peace that accompanies divine forgiveness.

I wish I could have given this book 10 stars. If you read one book as a Christian, make it this one. It has opened my eyes to a lot of things that I have been struggling with, without even realising it. This author has a way of putting things that make them clear and plain and understandable. It is clear that he has battled many unforgiveness issues himself, and he offers a way to total forgiveness, as well as motivating the need for it very convincingly. Read this book - you will not be disappointed.

Boy, did I need this!. I have no problem understanding God's forgiveness as total, and Jesus sacrifice as enough, once and for all..the problem comes when as a Christian you do things that you can't change and it gets to you, I mean really gets to you, and 'you' hold it against yourself. You repent, you ask God's forgiveness, you accept and know Jesus pain and sacrifice for your sin and..you know you are forgiven yet, you feel worse! I should not have done it!, how could I? You idiot ! all of these things come to mind, over and over again...You cannot go back and change things, you are sorry, you KNOW you are forgiven, you know you are saved, you have no problem with those facts! but 'you' have a problem with YOU! I have been going through this for years, especially as I am a Christian who messed up, BIG TIME, through divorce, through silly choices, financial and other, you are dissappointed with yourself, it is a very real Pain and grief, and the enemy uses it to turn the knife when he cannot use other things...thank you so much R T Kendall for addressing a very REAL issue for some. for speaking to me about my regrets, my failures, and how to get free at last from that, by forgiving myself and putting it in context with living life in true victory ...
