Item Description...
Overview
The scientific study of forgiveness is a new approach to an age-old problem. For thousands of years, people have practiced forgiveness within religious systems. Now, the new field of scholarly research of forgiveness reveals the beneficial aspects of the process. This volume draws from papers presented by research scientists and theologians at a conference on forgiveness, sponsored by the John Templeton Foundation. Contributors include Elliot Dorff and Martin Marty discussing religious interpretations, followed by social implications explained by Kenneth Pargament and Mark Rye. Roy Baumeister, Julie Exline, and Kristin Sommer present the victim's point of view. Other contributors focusing on the forgiveness research are: Everett Worthington, Robert Enright, Catherine Coyle, Carl Thoresen, Frederic Luskin, and Alex Harris. An annotated bibliography by Michael McCullough, Julie Exline, and Roy Baumeister, covers the empirical literature on the subject. Lewis Smedes concludes with the four steps necessary for forgiveness: moving from estrangement to forgiveness to reconciliation to hope.

Great Resource!  Oct 20, 2000
I bought the book as a resource for a paper I was writing. I enjoyed the variety of articles. The annotated Bibliography of forgiveness articles was very helpful. It is a great resource.
 
Publishers Review  Mar 17, 1999
Forgiveness has been practiced for thousands of years within the framework of religious and philosophical systems. The scientific study, however, has begun only recently. This volume represents the wisdom collected from a symposium on the scientific approach to forgiveness sponsored by the John Templeton Foundation. Noted scientists, theologians, and psychologists present their perspectives on forgiveness. Martin Marty discusses The Ethos of Christian Forgiveness and Elliot N. Dorff explains the Jewish perspective. Kenneth Pargament and Mark Rye reveal the method of religious coping; Roy Baumeister, Julie Exline, and Dristin Sommer discuss the roles of victims and the effects of holding grudges. Everett Worthington explains The Pyramid Model of Forgiveness, while Robert Enright and Catherine Coyle elaborate on the model of forgiveness within psychological interventions. To support these premises is an annotated bibliography of research on forgiveness that will provide researchers with the latest findings on the scientific approach. No matter what the perspective, the benefits of forgiveness can be measured and assessed. The good news is that within the data are imbedded the concepts of reconciliation and hope. Through this thorough investigation, we can begin to appreciate the powerful capacity human beings have to forgive and to grow. Everett L. Worthington, Jr., is professor of psychology at Virginia Commonwealth University. In 1986, he published an extensive review of research on religion in counseling and recently provided a 10-year update to this review, which appeared in Psychological Bulletin. Dr. Worthington has published more than 75 scientific articles in peer-reviewed journals on the role of spirituality in health and healthcare.
