Book Quotes: Grace and Forgiveness

From The Joseph Road by Jerry White (page 174):

Grace isn't cheap; it's costly. Joseph's forgiveness of his brothers was based not on their performance or even their outward repentance (though they asked him to forgive) but on his view of God. It is God who forgives. In the Old Testament, forgiveness required sacrifice, but sacrifices don't forgive a person--God chooses to do that.
