T.D. Jakes, New York Times bestselling author of Reposition Yourself, Making Great Decisions, and more than a dozen other titles, presents this book on forgiveness, demonstrating once again why he is called “a spiritual genius,” a “master of meeting mankind eye to eye,” and one of America’s best preachers.
Jakes understands that he and fellow Christians share spiritual truths “that transcend time and culture and reflect a universal understanding of human nature.” The spiritual truth he explores in Let It Go concerns forgiveness and why it is important for those on the receiving end of wrongful behavior as well as those who commit acts of wrongdoing.
“Forgiveness is a big idea and it works best when it is invested into people who have the courage to grasp the seven-foot-high idea of what’s best for their future rather than the four-foot-high idea of recompense for what has happened in their past,” Jakes writes in Let It Go. This book explores forgiveness as an idea and at the same time offers specific and clear actions for readers who seek to apply the idea in their daily lives. Offenses are a part of life, he says. But conflicts can be resolved and relationships do have a future, if we learn how to forgive. No matter how great or small the injustice, Jakes shows how the matter can be put behind you for the sake of a better tomorrow if you can Let It Go.
Let it Go
I absolutely love Bishop Jakes. This book was very good! He keeps it real and honest. It seemed like I highlighted every other page. A must read for anyone who needs to forgive themselves and "let it go"! Now on to his next book!
Feel that while concepts are typically solid, writing style was at times Tedious.
Let It Go!! I am!!
Let It Go! Was a hard read for me emotionally because I had to deal with so many truths. It took me a while to finish because my life kept stepping in trying to prevent me from finishing. On today July 23, 2013, I finished and the last passage of the book was about releasing whatever, whomever and forgive. Right a letter, tell them in person, phone whatever way is possible. I have recently been hurt so bad by someone I thought was my friend I thought i was nothing to get over it. it still hurts. Thank you TD Jakes.
