Should we always forgive?
Is forgiveness always even possible?
Does forgiveness enable evil?
Does it sacrifice justice?
Are there ANY limits?
In a world where the ugliness of rage and retaliation are driving the story line, Unconditional? offers the beauty, reconciliation, and total restoration of forgiveness the way Jesus taught us to live it.
More than just another biblical exposition, this book begins with the horror of the Holocaust as it explores what forgiveness means—and how far it should go—in the real world of murder, rape, child abuse, genocide, and other atrocities.
With unusual honesty, compassion, and depth, Zahnd incorporates some of the most compelling and difficult thoughts on the subject from history’s writers, philosophers, and theologians; always returning to the example Jesus gave us with his life and his death.
Brian Zahnd and his wife Peri live in St. Joseph, Missouri where they pastor Word of Life Church.
