SOLD: Hampton Roads Publishing has licensed the rights to the sixth edition of D. Patrick Miller's classic work on forgiveness, originally published in 1994 as A LITTLE BOOK OF FORGIVENESS. Released in March 2017, THE FORGIVENESS BOOK: healing the hurts we don't deserve brings Miller's acclaimed "Seven Steps of Forgiveness" to a new audience. "I think many people mistake forgiveness as a way to avoid conflict or let people off the hook, " says Miller. "The kind of forgiveness I am talking about is a daily discipline of learning to see things differently, which enables you to respond to challenges with clarity, compassion, and ingenuity. If you really want to change things and have a lasting effect on people, forgiveness is a better strategy than anything else.” Click here for reviews & excerpts.
