Forgiveness. Many claim that it is not an easy task. Larry Lilly agrees. But, the seasoned minister notes, it is the will of Christ. “Through studies of the biblical command, I discovered forgiveness to be in the will of Christ in addition to mental and emotional health reasons.” In his new book “Outrageous Forgiveness in 30 Days: The Benefits of Christlike Forgiveness” (published by WestBow Press), Lilly provides concrete techniques to arrive at forgiveness no matter the situation.
Lilly admits that part of the inspiration for “Outrageous Forgiveness in 30 Days” was his own spiritual life. “I had the realization that I was not practicing Christlike forgiveness.”
Through intense, Christ-led biblical study, Lilly gained an understanding of the unique form of forgiveness that Christ practiced and promoted.
In “Outrageous Forgiveness in 30 Days,” Lilly gives real-life examples of Christlike forgiveness:
The widows of five men travel into the jungle of the Auca’s to live among the tribe and men who killed their husbands. They forgive in Jesus’ name the entire tribe who is converted to Christ including the men who killed the missionaries.
The Amish people of Nickel Mine, Pennsylvania, forgave the man who murdered their children in a small schoolhouse. The community experienced the spiritually healing effects by the grace of forgiveness.
“Outrageous Forgiveness in 30 Days” will encourage readers to release the burden of bitterness against those who have sinned against them.
“When Christians start forgiving others as Jesus taught,” says Lilly, “the world will be the beneficiary of the greatest revival in history.”
