This is the story of Kent Whitaker's journey toward forgiveness and faith after the brutal murder of his wife and one of his sons. Whitaker shows how the survivors of atrocious events can still forgive those who have permanently damaged their lives. One evening, the Whitaker family returned home after celebrating a son's impending graduation. On opening the front door, they faced a gunman lying in wait. The gunman opened fire, killing the younger son and Kent's wife, leaving Kent and his older son lying wounded until police and ambulances arrived. While recovering, Kent resolved in his heart to forgive whoever was responsible. Then it was discovered that the whole murder plot had been orchestrated by the surviving son. After a trial that resulted in a death sentence for his son, Kent emerged from this harrowing ordeal to share their astonishing journey toward forgiveness and redemption.--From publisher description.

Sad story. I was inspired by the extreme love that a father has for his Son even though that Son betrayed the entire family in an unspeakable manner.
