Product Description

According to the authors of this powerfully reasoned book, only a serious commitment to the Christian ideas of forgiveness and reconciliation can meet the needs of today's troubled world--and the church must take the lead in this process. Partly a survey of existing attitudes and partly a how-to manual for developing an active "public" church, this book highlights the importance of forgiveness and reconciliation in both congregational life and society, and it traces out the intricacies of making them happen. After discussing views of human nature and exploring the concepts of forgiveness and reconciliation, Robert Browning and Roy Reed put forth an innovative four-pronged approach integrating recent scientific studies of forgiveness with bold, theologically grounded ministry proposals.

Publisher's Description

According to the authors of this powerfully reasoned book, only a serious commitment to the Christian ideas of forgiveness and reconciliation can meet the needs of today's troubled world -- and the church must take the lead in this process.

Partly a survey of existing attitudes and partly a how-to manual for the development of an active, public church, this book highlights the importance of forgiveness in both congregational life and society, and it traces out the intricacies of making it happen. After discussing common views of human nature and exploring the concepts of forgiveness and reconciliation as found in Scripture and throughout church history, the authors introduce a four-pronged approach to fostering forgiveness that includes education, community involvement, political advocacy, and strategies for developing the moral courage required to confront secular society.

Bold and constructive, this book offers a powerful vision of the relation of Christianity and culture.
