Publisher's Summary

Should we always forgive? Is forgiveness always even possible? Does forgiveness enable evil? Does it sacrifice justice? Are there ANY limits? In a world where the ugliness of rage and retaliation are driving the story line, Unconditional? offers the beauty, reconciliation, and total restoration of forgiveness the way Jesus taught us to live it. More than just another biblical exposition, this audio book begins with the horror of the Holocaust as it explores what forgiveness means—and how far it should go—in the real world of murder, rape, child abuse, genocide, and other atrocities. With unusual honesty, compassion, and depth, Zahnd incorporates some of the most compelling and difficult thoughts on the subject from history’s writers, philosophers, and theologians—always returning to the example Jesus gave us with his life and his death.

Hope

He made the Bible relevant for today's world. It changes my mind set to have hope. With hope I am no longer crazy trying to figure things out in my mind.

Every Christian should read this book.

This book provides an eye-opening understanding on how every Christian should view the world. Forgiveness is possible and this book provides a plethora of examples of forgiveness offered in the most radical of circumstances. I hope to use this material for teaching in the future.

The essence of Scripture

This seems an excellent articulation of the essential core of Jesus' aims and purpose and where all New Testament study should begin.

Unforgivably Redundant

This may the best book on forgiveness I've ever come across. The biblical/theological view is excellent. Illustrations outstanding in many places. Sadly, it seems as if Brian was forced to have a certain number of words by the publisher and the result is the most redundant book I have ever come across. One could take half of the copy out (probably more) and have the exact same book - only better. This seems to be the trend more and more in book publishing. Time for the industry to enter the 21st century.
