Publisher's Summary

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."

Our worth is not defined by our actions

Until reading this, there was much unawareness of how blame and denial is running my life. The depth of lessons here is profound

life changing

I struggled to finished only because the book was so true, it was hard to listen to some points. I spoke to my pain in a way I cannot describe. but at the same time gave me hope in humanity. anyone who needs to forgive anyone including themselves, needs to read this!

Its intresting

The book has good stories but its no much help on how to get to the point of forgiveness. It just tells the storyof what happened and that the person forgive the other person . I didn't find it useful which is why I gave it 3strs also the narrator has a thick accent the was hard to understand in some points

Practical and Profound

If Desmond Tutu can forgive all of the trauma and horrors he has experienced, you can, too!
