Most of us are familiar with the golden rule: "Do unto others as you want them to do unto you." And if people treat us well, we generally do the same in return. But what about when others hurt us? Jesus gives us an even higher calling: "Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you" (Luke 6:27-28).

David Anderson shows us how we can extend extraordinary goodness to bless those who have hurt us. He presents the radical concept of "forgraceness": grace beyond forgiveness. God empowers us not only to pardon real-life hurts, but to seek the good of others. When this happens, our relationships can experience amazing transformation and redemptive healing.

But we can't do it on our own. We need God's strength to take us to the next level. With God's help, we can offer true grace beyond forgiveness.
