CWN.com - Former first lady Hillary Clinton talked with CBN News reporter David Brody about the importance of faith and forgiveness.
She believes she's getting an unfair rap.
"I have to believe I am because time and time again people who have been criticizing me in very harsh and personal terms - once they have gotten to know me - have apologized to me have asked even for my forgiveness," she said.
Clinton said it was her faith that got her through her marital problems.
"Forgiveness is just a word unless you're really confronted with the necessity of having to exercise it," she explained. "And then it is the hardest work you are ever called upon to do."
She may not wear it on her sleeve, but friends know her to be a deeply committed Methodist.
From her early years as a Sunday School teacher, to taking part in Bible studies, to praying daily on the campaign trail with Bible verses in hand, she said her faith shapes her policy.
"My faith has sustained me, it has informed me, it has saved me, it has chided me, it has challenged me," she said.
