9780007512874: The Book of Forgiving

The Book of Forgiving, written together by the Nobel Peace Laureate Archbishop Desmond Tutu, and his daughter Revd Mpho Tutu, offers a deeply personal testament and guide to the process of forgiveness.

All of us have at times needed both to forgive and be forgiven – whether small, everyday harms or real traumas. But the path to forgiveness is not easy, and the process unclear. How do we let go of resentment when we have been harmed, at times irreparably? How do we forgive and still pursue justice? How do we heal our hearts? How do we heal the harm we have caused others? And how do we forgive ourselves?

Drawing on his memories of reconciliation in post-apartheid South Africa, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, together with his daughter, Revd Mpho Tutu, herself an experienced teacher and preacher, offers four concrete steps along the path to forgiving and being forgiven.

Each chapter contains reflections and personal stories, as well as exercises for practising each step of the path. The Book of Forgiving is a touchstone and tool for anyone seeking the freedom of forgiveness: an inspiring guide to healing ourselves and creating a more united world.

Book of Forgiving

Review:

'I am lost for words to express my appreciation for this book. With considerable courage the authors recall the hurts they and others have suffered and how, in the face of dreadful wrongs,forgiveness has proved to be truly healing.’ – Terry Waite

‘Desmond and Mpho Tutu have been very practical and generous in writing this book.  Drawing on an experience of suffering and forgiveness which no-one would wish to endure, they make a loving gift of it to make forgiving easier for their readers, who should be many – for the need to forgive is as basic to our humanity and the future of our species as eating and breathing.’ – Diarmaid McCullough

‘Bishop Tutu and his daughter Mpho reveal groundbreaking insights as to how to acknowledge and resolve our lifelong burdens of anguish and pain towards a new paradigm of transformative healing.’ – Annie Lennox
