What people are saying about Forgiveness 4 You...                                                             "This is an intelligent, thought-provoking and quietly unnerving work about the corporatization of holy offices. I don’t even think one can call it a satire, which may be the most troubling thing about it." -- Sam Sacks, The Wall Street Journal                                         "Ann Bauer’s latest is a clever, humorous novel about love, guilt and acceptance." -- Cindy Wolfe Boynton, Star Tribune                                         Click here for more...                                         "Bauer writes with humor and compassion about a business that is both bizarre and entirely all too real." -- Kirkus                                         "An exploration of absolution that manages to be simultaneously irreverent and compassionate." -- Booklist                                         Click here for more...                                         “A poignant and very funny story about the advertising of redemption and, yes, the redemption of advertising." -- Martin Kihn, author and creator of Showtime's House of Lies                                         "Forgiveness 4 You imagines a near future where everything—even grace—can be commodified, but where our better angels still wield surprising power.” -- Christopher Castellani, author of All This Talk of Love                                         Click here for more...
Here’s what people said when they heard about the premise behind Forgiveness 4 You: “Why isn’t that service available? I want this! Where can I go to confess and be absolved?”

So we decided to create it—not as a for-profit business, like the one in the novel, but a free online forum where people can air the worries and guilt that keep them up at night. This is a safe place: confessions are guaranteed anonymous by a webmaster from the computer security field.

Forgiveness 4 You is a place for real stories of sadness and triumph, equal parts catharsis, honesty and advice. "If you are depressed you are living in the past," said the mystic philosopher Lao Tzu. We at Forgiveness 4 You want to help people stop living in the past by hearing their histories, forgiving their moments of weakness, and helping them move on.
