This book is an invaluable resource for healing broken relationship in all areas of life, personal and societal.
The authors do an excellent job of exploring the roles of the offender, offended and community in this process of authentic engagement. Repentance, forgiveness, and reconciliation are key concepts in restorative justice and this book is a basic text for understanding these values.
Confessors and pastoral counselors often wish they had a theologically sound, handy resource to recommend to persons who struggle with forgiving others, a guide they can use in the often long process of forgiveness and reconciliation. This book is such a resource.
