Forgive Forget Fruitful
Turning Offences and Tragedies Into Divine Opportunities

by John Lewis


This book is highly practical. It gives application to Biblical principles in the area of handling offences, hurts and tragedies. We all go through difficult times that we didn’t ask for or even imagine would ever happen to us. Our choice is either to be a victim or an over-comer.
Combining Biblical truth, life experience and personal research, the author outlines a necessary process of moving through those negative experiences to a place of freedom where we recapture the purpose God always intended.
In Matthew 6:9-13 Jesus gave us a wonderful pattern to follow, when we come before ‘our Father in Heaven’ in prayer. It includes praise and petition, along with a cry, ‘forgive us…as we forgive others’. Jesus makes it clear, we have an obligation – if we live under the Father’s forgiveness, we have to live out His forgiveness.
Find the faith to forgive, the freedom to forget and the foundation to be fruitful.

What others are saying

Rev. Robert Lim, Founding Pastor Evangel Family Church, Singapore; former Assistant Superintendent of Assemblies of God Singapore: “This book is a must read for everyone especially Christians. Hurts inflicted by others or brought on by ourselves will render us fruitless & a fruitless life is useless. Please read & be FREE!”

Rev. Dr. Lex Akers, Senior Pastor, Hills Wesleyan Church; District Superintendent, NSW District of the WMC: “I wish I could say there is no need for this book in the church, I cannot… Rev. John Lewis does not scout around the issue, but carefully presets the Scriptural basis for forgiveness and the profound fruitfulness that can result. I encourage everyone to read this book…”

James Condon, Commissioner, Territorial Commander, The Salvation Army – Australia Eastern Territory: “This is a must read book for those who have been hurt and offended and those who reach out to them, as well as those of us who may have caused the hurt or offence.”
