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.
The Book of Forgiving, written together by the Nobel Peace Laureate Archbishop Desmond Tutu, and his daughter Revd Mpho Tutu, offers a deeply personal testament and guide to the process of forgiveness. All of us have at times needed both to forgive and be forgiven - whether small, everyday harms or real traumas. But the path to forgiveness is not easy, and the process unclear. How do we let go of resentment when we have been harmed, at times irreparably? How do we forgive and still pursue justice? How do we heal our hearts?
Als Vorsitzender der südafrikanischen Wahrheitsfindungskommission wurde Friedensnobelpreis-Träger Desmond Tutu Zeuge von Schilderungen grausamer Folter und Morde. Aus dieser Erfahrung heraus plädiert er dafür, dem Anderen zu vergeben. Vergeben können und Vergebung empfangen - das ist die Botschaft dieses Hörbuches.
