    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.

    Ex-US-President Theodore Roosevelt is is approached by John Boyes with the idea of raising the natives of the Belgian Congo and gaining independence for the African colony. Through some quite shrewd manipulations and a fine awareness of the situation he manages to easily oust the Belgian colonists and establish an independent African country. However, what he now has to do is bring democracy to the Congo and unite a country made up of semi-nomadic tribes still rooted in traditions, and used to a society controlled by tribal leaders and witch doctors.

    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?
