"Describes a series of situations in which people are reconciled to some injustice and manage to come to a better understanding and, sometimes, to forgive . . .For anyone interested in the subject, I would highly recommend it."
--Rachel Billington, "Inside Time" in the National Newspaper for Prisoners
How could survivors of the Burma Road, the Siberian Gulag, or Nazi atrocities forgive those who harmed them? How can representatives of entire populations--Australian Aborigines, African Americans, and black South Africans--be reconciled with whites who exploited them? And how can the offenders find the grace to apologize?
Michael Henderson writes about dozens of remarkable people of many nations and faiths who have, by repentance and forgiveness, been able to break the chain of hate through repentance and forgiveness.
