Reviews from Pastors & Missions

Rev. Bruce W. Gimbel, BA, M Div. Chaplain, Hernando County sheriff’s Dept. Pastor Jericho Road Ministries, Florida

I loved your book.  It opened my eyes too!  I just sent an order in through your website for more copies.

We have used this book in our New Life Recovery Program here at Jericho Road Ministries.  The clients we work with have found it to be a refreshing and powerful tool for them in dealing with forgiveness for themselves and others.  I would highly recommend this book for small or large group settings, and individually too.  We will be reordering in the coming months.

Coleman Harbor, Counselor, New Life Recovery Instructor, Bridgeport Rescue Mission, Bridgeport CT

Tremendous insight and powerful spiritual revelation in this book. I see the eyes of clients light up with its simple solutions for healing damaged souls.

C. Dwayne Baird, D. Min. & CEO, Haven of Rest Rescue Mission, Bristol TN

Forgive Instantly & Live Free is compassionately written, clearly communicated, and remains focused on the issues throughout the book.  Thirteen short chapters, in one hundred seventy pages that will positively impact anyone who is seriously looking for forgiveness and a new/renewed relationship with Jesus Christ.

D. Scott Bjork, President & CEO, Memphis Union Mission, Memphis TN

Thank you for sending the four copies of your book Forgive Instantly.  Reading it made me aware that it will not only be a great tool for our clients but with me as well.  I am asking the Lord to help me become a man who forgives instantly! You are right on target that if we want to be disciples of Jesus Christ we have no alternative but to forgive others.  Thank you for making this crystal clear in the book!  Our Staff will be the first to implement these principles in our own lives.  We can’t teach what we are not willing to do ourselves.  Thank you for taking God’s word and providing the unapologetic application in your book.

Gregory Kirk BA TH MA, Clinical Counselor MA CS, United Gospel Rescue Mission, Poplar Bluff MO 

I read one of the books you sent and knew you were right on the mark.  I gave the other three copies to my trusted intern clients who had completed the 12 step program and ask them to review the book and get back with me.  They came back in a day recommending the mission use the book with all clients and have a supply on hand.  One of the three, as a result of your book, had forgiven his father and called him to talk.  He had not spoken to his father in forty years.  That is the type of miracles the message in your book has the power to produce.

Kevin R Neely, Programs Manager, Day Center Director, Union Gospel Mission of Missoula

Hi Terry,  I’ve read your book and will make it available to our guests.  I appreciate your willingness to share what you’ve learned with those who need it most. Blessings to you.  I am ordering another shipment from your website.

Rev. Terry Wilcox, President, NE Association of Gospel Rescue Missions, Executive Director, Bridgeport Rescue Mission, and Linda Casey, Director of Programs, Bridgeport Rescue Mission, Bridgeport CT

We both have read Forgive Instantly & Live Free and believe it is an important piece of curriculum as we restructure our New Life Program.  We just ordered 35 books to start our program course.  We are rebuilding our New Life Program with the goal of building the best faith-based recovery program in the state of Connecticut.  We see this book and the concept of Forgiveness as an integral part of our curriculum for our Level I students … it is a good companion to our other foundational curriculum which is the Genesis Process.

Jeff Gilfillan, Director of Development, Union Gospel Mission, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada

We purchased Forgive Instantly & Live Free from to be used with our programs.   Both our Men’s and Women’s Addiction programs are finding the book very helpful.

David Lewis – The Basic Idea Ministries, Inc. 

The book Forgive Instantly & Live Free is truly profound because it helps grab hold of the power of forgiveness in Jesus Christ.  I needed to know the depths of this truth and be reminded of His ownership ….well that happened reading your book and the verses to which it took me.  Thank you so much for writing it.

Staff, Northpoint Community Church, Alpharetta, Georgia

I picked up a copy of your excellent book at the church office.  The book is very well written and has a powerful message.  I do hope the book distributors will pick it up and suggest it to all the bookstores within their area.

Pastor Mark C. Urlaub,  Bethlehem Evangelical Lutheran Church, Vinton, Iowa

It’s a good book.  Grace oriented.  I appreciate the reassurance  that salvation is accomplished by Jesus for all.  He does not make faith a choice or a good work to achieve salvation but does talk about how to put that grace and faith to positive effect in one’s life.

Pastor Zach Zajicek, Norwood Heights Baptist Church, Palestine, Texas

Hello Terry!  May the Lord richly bless you. Thank you for your gracious giving and your ministry in Word to us last week. A wave of revival has come through your message of forgiveness and people are forgiving one another!    Praise the LORD!    Anytime you are in our area again, please do stop by, even if its last-minute. God’s people here need to hear what you have to say.   Blessings on you brother!

Tennessee Pastor posted by email

This book alone will start a revival in our church.  Why has it taken me this many years to find a book that makes forgiving understandable and easy to do.   Thank you for your clarity and simplicity.  The overview you give in the book makes the whole Bible come together as a complete road map.  Now it is easy to see why mankind has run so far in the wrong direction and what simple steps it takes to restore us back to His path leading to the “abundant life”.

Church email posted from a Pastor

Thank you Terry. Everything I heard so far of your ministry Sunday night was overwhelmingly positive. God’s people were challenged, renewed in their thinking about forgiveness.  Thank you for the book. I’m looking forward to digging in to it as many here are doing already.

Cherise Merrick, CEO, Bread of Life Mission, Holbrook, AZ

Tracy, our resident cook, was the first at our mission to read your book and “LOVED” it.

Letter from a marriage counselor

I started using the principles listed in your book on the second phase of forgiving.  My clients are thriving and seeing real progress in their relationships. I recommend your book to all of my clients and anyone struggling in their marriage. It makes forgiving so clear and simple.
