Robert Enright and Joanna North have produced a truly remarkable book on a subject of enormous relevance to our troubled world. I commend it to anyone who wants to wrestle seriously with one of the toughest issues that faces humankindhow to deal positively with real and deep offenses. Such offenses occur, both in our private lives and in larger society. Here are some penetrating concepts and practical ideas on how to creatively deal with those offenses through forgiveness. Surprising and powerful thoughts confront you as you read these pages on how to achieve true and lasting forgiveness.”Millard Fuller, founder and president of Habitat for Humanity International
is a most significant contribution to the growing body of literature on the most critical challenge facing human existence today: can people who have been injured and wronged surmount their hostilities and live together in peace?”Lewis B. Smedes, professor emeritus of theology and ethics, Fuller Theological Seminary
From Desmond Tutu’s Foreword to Robert Enright’s comprehensive bibliography, this is a book worth reading. Someday we may speak, in one breath, of Kohlberg’s moral stages, Gilligan’s ethical voices, and Enright’s units of forgiveness.”John Snarey, professor of human development and ethics, Emory University
