Book Review: The Truth About Forgiveness

The Truth About Forgiveness by John MacArthur
paperback 2012

Do we have the power to ever forgive ourselves? Certainly not! In this small book, the author explains very clearly and concisely that we are all sinners, and that every person needs true forgiveness : the forgiveness and grace of God.
‘’The good news about salvation starts with the bad news about sin.’’
I loved how this book begins with force: explaining how guilty we are as sinful humans, and then through the remaining chapters explaining about God’s amazing forgiveness us-ward, and ending with how we in turn are to show forgiveness towards our fellow men.
God doesn’t love us because of who we are; He loves us in SPITE of who we are!
‘’There can be no salvation for those who AREN’T convinced of the SERIOUSNESS of their sin.’’
I was overjoyed to finally review a book where I had no complaints about the author’s doctrine or beliefs! This was a marvelous little book; easy to finish in just a few hours, but very deep and able to impact the reader, whether he be saved or unsaved. I enjoyed the font, the length of the book as well as the writing style. I appreciated John MacArthur’s in-depth explanation of several new testament accounts. Read this book- you will not be disappointed. Rather, you will be convicted.

I received a copy of this book free from, and was encouraged to state my own opinion whether positive or negative!

Check back soon for a longer review on this book!
