Many people's lives are crippled, or at least hampered, by what other people have done to them, or what they have done to other people. Only by finding a way to get free of the past, can people truly live. This book is a study into the process of life-giving forgiveness in the light of the events of Holy Week nearly two thousand years ago. Readers will be able to make connections between life at the beginning of the twenty-first century and some of the events and characters of Christ's passion and death.
In this wise and pithy book, Una Kroll, an experienced doctor and priest, sheds new light on the how and why of forgiveness and how coming to understand the meaning of the death of Jesus and helps everyone to forgive and live. Each chapter begins with a story taken from life and ends with an illuminating passage from the Bible.
