Embodying forgiveness : a theological analysis by L. Gregory Jones( Book )

8 editions published between 1995 and 2006 in English and held by 494 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The practice of forgiveness is often taken to be either too easy or too difficult. On the one hand, forgiveness is sometimes made too easy by today's therapeutic culture, which views forgiveness mainly as a means for making ourselves and others feel better. On the other hand, forgiveness is sometimes taken to be too difficult by those who believe that violence is the only effective force for responding to injustice. This volume by L. Gregory Jones argues that neither of these extreme views is appropriate and offers, to society as a whole, a biblically centered exploration of what it truly means to embody Christian forgiveness.--From publisher's description
