Description Endorsements Excerpts Table of Contents

Trinity Lutheran Church was burned to the ground by one of the most prolific arsonists in the history of the United States. When Paul Keller was finally apprehended and imprisoned, one of his first visitors was Rick Rouse, pastor of the church he burned. Pastor Rouse said that he was compelled by Christ to visit Paul and offer him his personal forgiveness.

That simple and profound act began a process of healing and transformation that included the entire congregation, the victims of arson, and his family. Through sharing his story — and highlighting other stories of forgiveness — Pastor Rouse outlines the path toward reconciliation that many have experienced when relying upon God's gift of forgiveness.

Perfect for small group discussion. A film about the church and their journey is available: Forgiveness: A Miracle of Love. Order the two together.
