To forgive someone can be simple. But this simple act can have powerful consequences – and may lead to a personal and spiritual transformation. Recently, the study of forgiveness has come into its own. Researchers are examining the psychological and physical effects of forgiveness under an amazingly wide variety of conditions, ranging from petty insults to sexual assault to 9/11. Clinicians now help guide people to forgive transgressions and get on with their lives. From Ground Zero to Northern Ireland to the Amish countryside, The Power of Forgiveness explores this important concept, and reveals how forgiveness can transform your life. Featuring Elie Wiesel (Nobel Laureate, Holocaust survivor and Oprah Book Club author); Marianne Williamson (spiritual activist and author of Healing the Soul of America) Thich Nhat Hanh (Buddhist teacher, author and peace activist); and Thomas Moore (author of the bestselling Care of the Soul).
