Project Description


When the war ended, his battle began. Much like Louis Zamperini many of us are haunted by past wrongs, injustices, and wounds.

How do we find forgiveness and truly forgive others? This part of Louie’s story provides some incredible encouragement and insights. An Olympic and World War II hero, Louie was tortured while a prisoner during the war. He came home still fighting the battles he faced as a POW. For many of us, the only way to get life back and to keep our past from destroying our future is through forgiveness.

This is the heart of the message of this special FREE, one-hour simulcast event your church can host. Invite your congregation to join Dr. Dick Tibbits as he presents research and scientifically documented findings that show the healing power of forgiveness. Through story and content, the members of your church or small group can travel on their own journeys to forgiveness.

This FREE, one-hour simulcast event offers:

  • Understanding of the difference between guilt and shame
  • Freedom, peace, and strength never thought possible
  • New understanding of what causes pain
  • Discovery of what forgiveness does and doesn’t mean
  • Help in avoiding giving control of your life to people from your past

This special event also includes:

  • Luke Zamperini, son of Louis and Cynthia Zamperini
  • Will Graham, evangelist and grandson of Billy Graham
  • A sneak peak at scenes from the upcoming film UNBROKEN: PATH TO REDEMPTION
