Availability Availability information : In Stock

The work, by noted religion writer Kennth Briggs, explores the dimensions and frontiers fo a problem that can perplex, provoke and sometimes liberate anyone who has wronged another and/or has been wronged by another. Taking its theme and key resources from the Martin Boblemeier film of the same name, the book also points in a direction of its own: probing religious meanings of teh process, including the pacifist option; testing the complexities and limits of forgiving; considering the difficulties of actually carrying it out; and examining scientific claims that forgiveness improves health. The book reflects the thinking and behavior that have grown up around the subject of forgiveness - with the help of such noted contributors as James Forbes, Thich Nhat Hanh, Thomas Moore, Elie Wiesel, and Robert Enright - and allows those factors to speak for themselves in an open-ended discussion with no foregone conclusions.
