Forgiving the Devil: Coming to Terms With Damaged Relationships

Terry D. Hargrave

The place of forgiveness in the field has changed dramatically since Hargrave began his work, with more and more professionals looking for ways to integrate meaningful definitions and effective applications into their therapy. Now Terry Hargrave’s newest book, Forgiving the Devil, introduces practical ways to do both.

The title of the book is meant to reflect the essential idea that “forgiveness” can be an active — and powerful — healing agent, even in the wake of the most heinous experience. Whether or not a relationship can be reclaimed, some pieces can be salvaged from it and used to protect, to prevent, to forewarn, to move on. In cases where restoration is possible, Hargrave outlines the steps that may be taken to facilitate a shift from victim to victor in the relationship. The author’s own moving story, which he shares here, coupled with case material and a thoughtful theoretical foundation, make this a uniquely accessible and penetrating resource for therapists and their clients.
