A Good Route Map to Forgiveness Feb 5, 2006
This book has three parts. The first one contains a discussion of what forgiveness is, what it means for our lives and how it can be achieved. Albeit brief, this section provides an invaluable route map for whomever might be in need to overcome injuries of the past.
In my view, the second past is the less usable. It contains a general description of 9 fictitious characters and analyzes how forgiveness can help them in their lives. A little vague and simplistic, I think this section could have well been done without.
Finally, the excellent third part analyzes how prayer and, in particular, centering prayer, can help you to forgive and achieve a whole live. The writing is very clear in this section, despite dealing with very complex topics.
The book is openly Christian. Non-believers may have problems in following it.
Forgiving May 2, 2002
With all the problems in the Catholic church at the moment, it was refreshing to go back and re-read Father William's book. He is an amazing story teller. Through his stories, one sees how forgiveness benfits the forgiver and is a necessary part of the healing process. The church should be giving copies of this book to all the abuse victims to help them find peace.
