This volume, a companion to the PBS documentary of the same title from Journey Films, examines the mysterious force of forgiveness at work in the world. Focusing on real people going through real struggles and faced with betrayal, loss, grief, and confusion, the film includes an honest look at the intensity of anger and grief and shows how recent research has shown how powerfully forgiveness and reconciliation can transform the personal, social, political, and cultural scripts that plague us. Included are stories of remarkable instances of forgiveness as well as compelling interviews with ordinary people and such luminaries as Nobel Laureate Elie Wiesel, Sr. Helen Prejean, Rabbi David Wolpe, Islamicist Azim Khamisa, Pastor James Forbes, Buddhist teacher Thich Nhat Hanh, Azim Khamisa, and acclaimed spiritual writer Thomas Moore. Full-color photographs from the film are included.
The work, by noted religion writer Kennth Briggs, explores the dimensions and frontiers fo a problem that can perplex, provoke and sometimes liberate anyone who has wronged another and/or has been wronged by another. Taking its theme and key resources from the Martin Boblemeier film of the same name, the book also points in a direction of its own: probing religious meanings of teh process, including the pacifist option; testing the complexities and limits of forgiving; considering the difficulties of actually carrying it out; and examining scientific claims that forgiveness improves health. The book reflects the thinking and behavior that have grown up around the subject of forgiveness - with the help of such noted contributors as James Forbes, Thich Nhat Hanh, Thomas Moore, Elie Wiesel, and Robert Enright - and allows those factors to speak for themselves in an open-ended discussion with no foregone conclusions.
