Abstract :

The study tested Hall and Fincham's (2005) hypothesis that perceived forgiveness from God increases the likelihood of self-forgiveness. We found a more personalized measure of God's forgiveness positively correlated with self-forgiveness, although a more general measure of God's forgiveness did not. In addition, we discuss therapeutic interventions relevant to perceived forgiveness and self-forgiveness.
