T.D. Jakes, New York Times bestselling author and pastor to millions worldwide, challenges us to release ourselves and others from the crippling grudges and binding resentments that hold us back when we do not forgive others. "Forgiveness is a big idea and works best when invested into people who have the courage to grasp the seven-foot idea of what's best for their future rather than the four-foot-high idea of recompense for what has happened in the past," Jakes writes.
Inspired by the Lord's Prayer, Let It Go explores forgiveness as a life practice and offers specific and clear actions for readers who seek to apply it in every area of their lives - their marriages, their families, their friendships, and their business relationships. "Offenses are a part of life," says Jakes, "but conflicts can be resolved and relationships restored when we stop paying the past with the resources of our future."
With his inimitable spiritual teaching and street-smart understanding of human nature, Jakes inspires us to embrace our destiny instead of obsessing about our history. No matter how great or small the injustice, Jakes shows us how the hurt can be hurdled, so that we might live in the joyful freedom waiting to be discovered when we Let It Go!
