No Future Without Forgiveness
Archbishop Desmond Tutu's memoir of the establishment of the original Truth and Reconciliation Commission, which he chaired, following the abolition of apartheid in South Africa in 1994. In small scale and large, recounting some of the most painful stories of the Commission as well as its shining moments, Tutu shows graphically how forgiveness and the healing it enables is the only path to the future from any trauma, and how this can be reached with honesty, integrity, compassion, and faith.
'To forgive is indeed the best form of self-interest since anger, resentment, and revenge are corrosive of that summum bonum, that greatest good, communal harmony that enhances the humanity and personhood of all in the community.' from the book
