It is my conviction that a reader’s own personal experience with betrayal or hurt will readily come to mind as he or she reads, and it is my hope that this book will better prepare them to navigate the complexities of this important topic.

A writer with a biblical studies doctorate has published a well-researched ethical examination of the nature and value of forgiveness that blends insights gathered from the writings of philosophers and biblical scholars and Chandler’s personal observations. In “Biblical Boundaries of Forgiveness: A Biblical and Ethical Study of Forgiveness as it Relates to Repentance, Reconciliation, and Justice,” author Vee Chandler, PhD, presents a faith-based, Bible-drawn examination of what forgiveness is and when it is justified.

Focused on demonstrating to readers how they can forgive others in the same way God forgives, “Biblical Boundaries of Forgiveness” offers guidance to Christian leaders on how the church should minister to victims who suffer at the hands of their loved ones and challenges popular interpretations of forgiveness as a self-help tool.

“This book began as a search for truth – from both a biblical and ethical standpoint,” Chandler said. “It is my conviction that a reader’s own personal experience with betrayal or hurt will readily come to mind as he or she reads, and it is my hope that this book will better prepare them to navigate the complexities of this important topic.”

A comforting and comprehensive guide for those who feel abandoned or betrayed, “Biblical Boundaries of Forgiveness” presents a timeless and relevant message that is not just limited to Christian or religious audiences, but which extends to all people who have been wronged by or have themselves wronged others.
