Misc updates regarding Unpacking Forgiveness —but, first, I want to give you one window into what our family prayer time looks like for this book. A few nights ago when we were praying together as a family, our five year old Mary Beth, prayed earnestly that when we get to Heaven we will meet someone who understood salvation because of this book.
We really are praying that many will be encouraged — for God’s glory and our joy. And, if we meet someone on the New Earth that has been encouraged, that it is really going to be cool.
You can read some of the specific ways I am praying here. I’m a pastor, so prayer for local churches is always on my heart in a particular way.

Molly Friesen mentioned Unpacking Forgiveness earlier this week on the Route 5:9 blog (click here). Molly has some helpful links about forgiveness. And, given that the Route 5:9 blog is connected with Peacemakers, a group that has done some great work in equipping local churches to resolve conflicts biblically, it is a blog you will want to reading often.
Since Molly posted, two things have changed. First, I sent a book off to Montana with instructions to find Molly. (She had not yet seen a copy).
Second, Molly also mentioned that she hadn’t see a review of Unpacking Forgiveness yet. There is at least one new review out there, and several other blogs have mentioned it one way or another.

Justin Taylor of Between Two Worlds posted an excerpt here.
And, there are at least three reviews now available on Amazon.
