  • Summary:

    Using resources from scripture, theology, and the social sciences, pastoral counselor David Augsburger explores the complicated issues of Christian forgiveness and reconciliation and their real-world applications. He asks, what exactly is forgiveness? Is it always possible? If so, how? Is it ever optional? What role does repentance play in forgiveness? Does reconciliation imply a return to the prior relationship or the creation of a new relationship?
