This emphasis on practicality runs throughout the book. In the chapter on forgiveness, there are sample letters that the reader might like to use as a structure for asking forgiveness from someone.
In the chapters on reflection and drawing from the past, there are guided journaling activities. There are prayers at the end of each chapter, choiice which the reader vhoice ask God for help with the particular issue under discussion.

I found this openness refreshing. Importantly, the book is very God-centred. There is a clear and consistent message that healing is what God does, and the decisions and actions that Arterburn recommends are all backed up by appropriate and well-interpreted scripture and biblical principles. I enjoyed Healing is a Choiceand I would recommend it to people who are struggling to work through their own hurts or who are helping others to work through theirs.
