Off The Hook How Forgiving you Frees Me by Dana Tibbitts & Patti Goldberg Book Review and Giveaway

O YOU THINK YOU'VE FORGIVEN? THINK AGAIN. Is there something you’ve inadvertently picked up along the way that’s sucking the life out of you? Stealing your peace? Has you stuck? Stuck happens. Much as we think we’ve moved on, hard things have a way of taking root in the heartscape of our lives. Off the Hook shares real life stories of real people who had no idea they were still captive to past hurts—until they walked through deep forgiveness! This way of forgiveness offers healing and freedom you never thought possible. It’s about the power of truly letting go—taking old pain patterns and people off your hook, for your sake, not theirs. No longer hemmed in by the burden of deep hurt, loss and offense, you are free at last to soar above it. Discover what no one has told you about the forgiveness power tool—what it is, what it is not, and how to do it. Rewrite the ending to your true story by retrieving the well being and destiny God has for you.

My Thoughts:

As believers we know that we are suppose to ask for forgiveness and many of us do but deep in our heart we still feel that anger, hurt, and many other feelings that anger manifest that is so toxic to us. We have all been there and sometimes some are harder to let go of. 

The book has several stories of people who have hurt in their life. The stories share their walk of forgiveness. All the stories are different and share their walk of releasing, forgiving, and healing. The stories cover everything from hurt as child, dysfunctional families, marriages, church hurt, and generational sins with people that need to have true forgiveness, and other situations. 

The book is an easy quick read and flows nicely. The stories are heartfelt and I like that it covers a variety of scenarios that will connect too many different people who need to really have to let go and have true forgiveness in their heart. Saying you forgive is one thing but a heartfelt sincere one is difficult at times. I’ve been there.

There are several step-by-step instructions on what to say in your prayers to God. The back of the book has an Appendix for “Forgiveness Inventory Worksheet”, ”Your Devine Transaction”,  “The Ministry of Forgiveness” “Forgiveness Truths You Can’t Live Without”, and “After Burner”. 

There are several things that I don’t agree with in some of the exercises. Some parts were just weird to me. One weird thing for me is using your voice to articulate your thoughts directly to God speaking that person’s name out loud for God to take that person off the hook for you. I know and believe that God works in many ways and this may be the way He works for you in these step by step words in this book. The book has several scriptures throughout. There are some good points made in the book about forgiveness on pages 101-106 that I really appreciate those points being addressed like “Forgiveness is Not a Feeling But a Choice”, “Forgiveness Does Not Mean You Must Pretend That The Injury Didn’t Matter”, and a few other points that follow by a paragraph of comment.

This book just isn’t the way I believe. I’m sure it’s been helpful to many looking at the positive reviews. It just isn’t for me and not a book I can recommend. Read the other reviews and decide for yourself if this book is for you.
