Forgiving the attacker, the traitor, the criminal? Forgiving life? Oneself? Is it possible? Is it necessary? And above all, how can it be done? This book reminds us that to go forwards, and overcome obstacles, we must first of all take the time to heal our wounds. Then, and only then, the question of forgiveness is conceivable and possible. Deciding to free ourselves of resentment and destructive actions is a voluntary, active approach. Forgiveness requires neither renunciation nor abdication nor resignation. On the contrary, it is a complex yet formative and transformative choice. With a host of thoughts by famous figures of the struggle for peace and justice (Desmond Tutu, Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, etc.), this work offers us the possibility of taking a road of profound healing, of liberation.
