Susannah Griffith wishes she had spent less time thinking about forgiveness

But as a Christian minister, a biblical scholar, and a survivor of abuse, she has learned a lot about it

In Forgiveness after Trauma, Griffith explores what the Bible says--and doesn't say--about the biblical call to forgive

She helps readers understand this command in ways that are healing and restorative, framing it within broader concerns around lament, anger, accountability, release and rebirth, and reconciliation

The result is what Griffith calls "trauma-informed forgiveness," which takes seriously God's forgiveness of sinners while centering survivors of abuse and aiding their healing

This view also empowers those who have been harmed in other ways by abuses of power and justice in religious institutions

Readers will resonate with Griffith's astute biblical analysis and personal reflection, which point to God's love--a love that never includes abuse and strives for justice for the vulnerable.
