Discover the transformative power of forgiveness

"Through her most vulnerable writing, Ruth Graham shares with us the topic of forgiveness. In this encouraging book, she incorporates her own personal experiences as well as biblical Scripture to help guide us as readers to a better understanding of what forgiveness means and why we should choose forgiveness."--Mark Batterson, New York Times bestselling author of The Circle Maker and lead pastor of National Community Church

"Forgiving My Father, Forgiving Myself is an honest, heartfelt, and insightful book about the power of forgiveness. Through the lens of her own life journey, Ruth Graham shares biblical principles of forgiveness that can truly liberate even the most broken relationships. I am grateful for her vulnerability and courage to write such a book."--Sean McDowell, PhD, Biola University professor, speaker, and author


When we live with unresolved anger or hurt, the result is nearly always bitterness, broken relationships, and unhealthy behaviors. Unforgiveness not only sabotages our interactions with those around us but also impedes our own spiritual growth and inner peace.

You can experience the relief and power of forgiveness for yourself!

In her most vulnerable writing yet, Ruth Graham reveals how a visit to Angola Prison inspired her to release the unforgiveness lurking in her own heart--toward others, herself, and even her heavenly Father. Weaving her own personal experiences with biblical examples, she exposes what holds us back from forgiving others and ourselves--and what we gain when we finally discover the power to forgive. Along the way, she guides us into our own deeply personal experiences of forgiveness that will penetrate our protective walls and unleash true transformation in our lives.


Ruth Graham is the author of nine books, including the bestselling In Every Pew Sits a Broken Heart and the award-winning Step into the Bible. Her passion is to motivate people by God's grace and loving acceptance to move from a place of woundedness to a place of wholeness in Christ. Ruth Graham Ministries seeks to create safe places where people can begin and further their journey to wholeness in Christ. No stranger to heartache, Graham provides a biblical perspective as she shares her journey and points to the faithfulness of God in her own life's heartache. She lives in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia and has three grown children and nine terrific grandchildren.

"This transparent, readable, and life-changing book is one you will not be able to put down once you start reading it. You will buy copies for your friends. You will thank God for Ruth Graham and Romans 8:28--that all things 'work together for good' to those who love God."

Dr. R. T. Kendall

"I know of no Christian communicator more transparent, vulnerable, honest, and encouraging in our shared Christian walk than Ruth Graham. Her genuine love of Jesus, her family, and the family of God inspires us to follow her in authenticity, confession, compassion, and commitment. Ruth is a faithful, prayerful, trusted guide through life's trials and through God's Word, helping us find our way home through forgiveness. Writing from personal experience, reliance upon Scripture, and divine guidance from the Holy Spirit, Ruth has given us the forgiveness book of the year!"
