Recover the true beauty of Christianity as found in forgiveness.
If Christianity is to be a compelling and relevant voice in the twenty-first century, it needs a fresh message. Not a new innovation or novel interpretation, but a return to our roots. For if Christianity is not about forgiveness, it’s about nothing at all.
Beginning with the horror of the Holocaust, Radical Forgiveness
explores what forgiveness means--and how far it should go--in the real world of rape, child abuse, genocide, and other atrocities. With honesty and compassion Zahnd tackles questions such as...
- Should we always forgive?
- Is forgiveness always even possible?
- Does forgiveness enable evil?
- Does it sacrifice justice?
- Are there ANY limits?
Pushing you beyond intellectual exercises, Radical Forgiveness
will challenge your thinking by juxtaposing absolutely bottom-line examples with the simple question: What would you do?
