"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
""Exploring Forgiveness" 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
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

About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
I like the fact that this book is a collection of essays from professionals in many different walks of life. Essay's come from counselor's, psychologist, philosophers, a former Police Chief, an Episcopal Priest, a lawyer, the president of a Seminary and a professor of education. They each approach the subject of forgiveness from their expertise and personal backgrounds.
It is interesting that many of the articles compliment each other. The editors have done a good job of placing the articles in such a way that they build on the subject and give you a broad perspective.
As a pastor I did not agree with everything that was said, but I was very challenged that the religious and the secular realm both see the need for forgiveness and the healing power that it has for people in pain.
This is a good resource book for anyone who is counseling or mediating/arbitrating for people in conflict.
"Forgiveness" is a thought provoking springboard for anyone interested in improving interpersonal relationships, justice in our society, and peace in our world. The reader is compelled to conclude that a clearer development of the concept of forgiveness and the study of the best means to promote forgiveness should be the life work of our brightest minds. Forgiveness study, education and implementation is just as important as ecology to save the human race. This book is a cause for hope.
