How do I forgive?
Nobel laureate Archbishop Desmond Tutu has witnessed some of the worst crimes people can inflict on others. So wherever he goes, he inevitably gets asked this question. This audiobook is his answer. Writing with his daughter, Mpho, an Anglican priest, they lay out the simple but profound truths about the significance of forgiveness, how it works, why everyone needs to know how to grant it and receive it, and why granting forgiveness is the greatest gift we can give to ourselves when we have been wronged.
They explain the four-step process of forgiveness - Telling the Story, Naming the Hurt, Granting Forgiveness, and Renewing or Releasing the Relationship - as well as offer meditations, exercises, and prayers to guide the listener along the way.
"With each act of forgiveness, whether small or great, we move toward wholeness," they write. "Forgiveness is how we bring peace to ourselves and our world."

Until reading this, there was much unawareness of how blame and denial is running my life. The depth of lessons here is profound
This book strikes a much more profound chord than any other I've read on this subject. Whether you've experienced (or inflicted) a great harm or not, this is a book that just might change your life.
This book is amazingly transformative and insightful! Everyone needs to listen to this book! I really, really enjoyed it!
This was an incredible book. But I didn't like accents when the reader was quoting people. I felt it annoying and unnecessary. But I still love the book and fully recommend it. I've listened to it many times.
It stayed true to it's title, it revolves around forgiveness.
It is both storytelling but it is also a guide.
I would recommend this to any friend and to any enemy. I'd recommend this to every world leader.
It is lyrical and lovely. Not only was what they had to say of significant substance but, with my eyes closed, it was like a meditation, a hypnosis of hope!
The prayer before the prayer
You deserve to listen to this book
