     Molested as a young teenager, Mariah Burton Nelson found herself decades later still consumed with anger. Drawing on her own poignant story of betrayal and reconciliation, along with psychological studies, spiritual wisdom, poetry and original interviews with othrs who have forgiven offenses great and small, she shows how forgiveness can help us achieve a profound and lasting peace. Her five keys to forgiveness--Awareness, Validation, Compassion, Humility, and Self-Forgiveness--help us to understand, validate, and ultimately free ourselves from the overwhelming burdens of past wounds--from the shame, recrimination, retribution, and superiority that all too often consume us. Powerful, personal, and ultimately practical, this guide offers new hope for anyone who wants to explore forgiveness as a way of life.
