Do you want to know what I have been reading lately?
To be completely honest, I put off reading this book for a while. It's not that I wasn't interested in this book, but that I have been very busy having a baby and becoming a new Mom. So, in an effort to take a much needed break from baby and parenting books, I decided to read, "The Truth About Forgiveness" by, John MacArthur. This is the first book I have read by John MacArthur. It is one of three books in his "The Truth About Series".
The first thing that appealed to me about this book is that it was so short! Most books like this that take time to unpack biblical truths are hundreds of pages long. As a Mom of a three month old I do not have time for large books like that. However, this book was perfect for me! It is broken into seven short chapters and was an easy read.
Do not let the length of this book decieve you, because this book was packed full of biblical truths that I could apply to my life. I thought that this book would teach me about how to forgive others. However, in all honesty it showed me how much God wants to forgive me! It helped to remind me that I need to repent and deal with my own sins before God. This book also includes one of the most unique looks at the story of the Prodigal Son I’ve ever read.
I have rated this book a 4 out of 5 stars.
