  • “This book is great for those who are seeking to put hurts and wounds in the past. Perfect for counselors and clients!” – Susan Singer, Book Review
  • “Forgiveness is a Choice has turned out to be exactly what I had hoped it would be. It is an academic masterpiece that is extremely well-written, well-thought-out, precise and gentle.” – RIBH, Book Review
  • “Dr. Enright offers a process for forgiving another person, which he outlines in his book in a readable, approachable manner. While it is supported by research studies on forgiveness, it is not written in formal language. Rather, it is presented in layman’s terms and provides clear explanations about the value of forgiveness, both for ourselves and others.” – Kate Soucheray, Licensed Family Therapist. Read her full review.
