In an increasingly divided society, New York Times bestselling author Charles Martin is challenging Christians to demonstrate Christ-like forgiveness — an act he believes has the power to “turn the world upside-down,” just like the first century believers.

“What if we just forgave everybody, for everything, for all time, the same way Jesus forgives us?’” he said in an interview with The Christian Post. “What if we forgave people who didn’t deserve it? What if we forgive people who are currently sinning against us? What if we forgave, and then walked out in the sacrificial love of Jesus? If we did that, I believe the world would look really different.”

A seasoned writer, Martin has written over 14 novels over the span of his 20-year career. His books have reached millions, with the 2011 romance-disaster novel The Mountain Between Us turned into a movie in 2017, featuring major Hollywood stars Idris Elba and Kate Winslet.
