Let It Go: Forgive So You Can Be Forgiven by T. D. Jakes
When I saw the book Let it Go: Forgive So You Can Be Forgiven by T. D. Jakes as the July selection for our ministry Book Club, I was excited to get a copy and read it! We’ve been discussing bitterness and resentment in our small group Bible studies, and I wanted to go deeper and learn more. I was completely satisfied with this book…rich in content and applicable to many areas of life. Mr. Jakes applies his concepts of forgiveness to business, ministry and personal relationships. He doesn’t preach “get over it” and instead he teaches how to reshape your view, understand your anger and process these feelings in a healthy and constructive manner. He uses excellent examples from his own experiences and this adds value to the book.
When teaching about anger, Mr Jakes writes “Anger is a God-given emotion that if managed correctly can be of huge benefit….If Jesus got angry and used it to set the temple in order (see Mark 11:15–19), then you and I must understand that there are some things within us and around us that we will not correct if we aren’t angry about them.” He then explains how to take ownership of your anger and prevent it from taking root as bitterness.
This is a really good book if you want to remove anger, resentment and bitterness from your heart. You’ll also learn about dealing with people who have hidden resentment towards you. Grab a copy and be warned…once you pick it up you will not want to put the book down until you finish…it’s that good! I highly recommend this book.

Note: I saw a related workbook with the same title, and when I added it to my shopping cart the expected delivery date is December 2030…. um…I certainly hope that I don’t need to wait that long! 😉
