Have the Funeral – Study Guide by James MacDonald is the fourth release in the popular Platform Series, which is comprised of thought-provoking LifeWay Bible studies that feature compelling video sermons from the platforms of some of today’s most influential pastors. This study explores the process of forgiveness ― from the biblical definition all the way to the official burial of our unforgiveness and life thereafter. Author and pastor James MacDonald defines forgiveness as “the decision to release a person from the obligation that resulted from injury.” From the pulpit he explores the nuances of forgiveness, common rationalizations of unforgiveness, and the fallout of failing or refusing to forgive. He not only shows how to make forgiveness final but also how to live a God-honoring life of integrity in the spirit of forgiveness. MacDonald’s no-nonsense approach to the topic is ideal, combining practical application with timeless truths from Scripture. (6 sessions)
