Explanation of the Book:

"Anyone who wants to know the truth about the Nicaraguan Revolution should come and see with their own eyes. Then let them make their own judgment, as the authors of this book have. Those who cannot come should read this book and then make their judgment."Rev. Ernesto Cardenal, Minister of Culture, Nicaragua"Three things are striking about this small volume. The first is the timeliness of the topic. The resolution of the problems of such Third World countries as Nicaragua and the Philippines are weighting the future of our world. The second is the importance to people of faith around the glove as to how our religious heritage can inform our political judgments on current revolutionary situations. The third is the exciting and refreshing 'doing of theology' in the context of group experience and group reflection - in this case by a group comprised almost entirely of women."Robert DeWitt, formerly Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Pennsylvania"This book must be read by every American struggling with the question: 'What is the truth about U.S. involvement in Nicaragua?"Delores S. Williams, Muhlenberg College"Revolutionary Forgiveness is a testimony... to the power of the Nicaraguan struggle to change lives and to call citizens of the that very superpower that seeks to crush it to repentance."Rosemary Ruether, Garrett-Evangelical Seminary and Northwestern Seminary"Empathetic and daring, this unusual book, rooted in a feminist perspective, has a message for every North American about the revolutionary power of forgiveness."Archie Smith, Jr., Pacific School of Religion

Explanation of the Book:

All over the world people are the same, and what is even more interesting, we all have the same hopes, we desire many of the same dreams, we share the same emotions, we all share a time to laugh, a time to cry, a time to fear, a time to love, a time to care, a time to feel angry, a time when we are sad, and a time when joy brings us to that place of total happiness, peace, and tranquility; which is a sure moment in time. And the truth of the matter is this, God is on the throne and it is only in Him, through Him, and by Him, that all things are made possible for us. Because He has assured us that He will never leave us nor forsake us. God is a BIG GOD! And whatever your challenge is, whatever your struggle is, whatever concern you may have, and whatever it is that you are dealing with in your life today, there is nothing too hard for God. In God works Through Human Personality the author exemplifies beautifully through inspiration what God can do, and will do for you, when you put your trust in Him. The word of God clearly encourages us by this saying; if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us, and if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him. 1 John 5: 14-15 And know that there are angels we see, and there are angels we don''t see, this is how we know that God is our comforter, our helper, our maker, and our redeemer, through the many trials we face, and the courage we are inspired through the men, women and sometimes children that we cross on a daily basis. There is no respect of persons with God. Romans 2: 11 We are encouraged to let brotherly love continue. And be not forgetful to entertain strangers; forthereby some have entertained angels, remember them that are in bonds, as bound with them; and them which suffer adversity, as being yourselves also in the body. Hebrews 13: 1-3 How good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! Psalm 133: 1 The Lord said

On Teen Internet Pornography: If you Yahoo 'free teen sex pictures' Yahoo gives you 142,000,000 pages to enjoy...two right clicks of the mouse and you've got a free porn collection On Creation and Evolution: The debate about creation and evolution is fair game. What is not fair is the efforts of one side to silence the rights of the other to their beliefs and opinions, a wrong historically committed by both sides. On Homosexuality: Let the debate continue, but let it be infused with truthfulness instead of lies, starting with the scientific fact that people are not born gay. On Suicide: There, in the middle of the gray, dead cement basement room, a boy hangs from a floor joist above by a length of shipping strapping, its length stretched to its limit, its form cut deeply into the boy's neck...We learn later he was bullied at school. On Faith: All the arguments in the world for or against Christ don't matter... It all comes down to this; either you want to believe or you don't. And then you live your life accordingly.

The Two Suggestions should be mandatory reading for every teenager, parent and youth advocate in America and Canada today.

Explanation of the Book:

Seventy times seven...how many times shall I forgive? Our Lord answers us clearly that our forgiveness of those who hurt us shall have no end. This is one of the most difficult things any person has to face. David Augsburger understands this. He knows the outrageous cost-and incomparable value-of forgiving. He also knows this is a believer's only option. Any other course of action will not only be destructive, it will violate the will of God. In The New Freedom of Forgiveness, Dr. Augsburger expands upon his classic writing to provide a more comprehensive, expanded, and stronger message. Combining personal testimonies with Scripture, Dr. Augsburger provides readers with practical guidance on applying forgiveness in our everyday lives. With an excellent new study guide, readers will be challenged on an even deeper level. We are commanded to forgive everything. Not just the little stuff, the minor irritations and thoughtless behavior of others, but everything. When we forgive, we are set free from bondage. The New Freedom of Forgiveness is an essential resource not only for understanding what God requires, but also learning how to apply it every day. Read this life-changing book and discover the freedom of forgiveness.

Forgiveness and Restorative Justice

Forgiveness and Restorative Justice

Pages: 147

Available:
Release: 2021-07-19

Explanation of the Book:

The meaning of ‘forgiveness’ and its role within restorative justice are highly contested. This book offers analysis from practical and academic perspectives within Christian theology, against a rich canvas of related concepts, including victimhood, sin, love, and vulnerability. Critical friends of restorative justice, the authors argue that forgiveness – whether as journey or act, unilateral or mutual, conditional or unconditional – is necessary to achieving a fully restorative resolution to acts of harm. They also suggest that Christianity, with its meaning-giving metanarrative of restoration, and preference for communitarian approaches to justice, may have epistemic value for evaluating and even deepening the theory and practice of restorative justice.

Explanation of the Book:

AN INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER! “[The Gift of Forgiveness] will spark conversations across families, across friendships, at workplaces, everywhere.” –Maria Shriver A fresh, inspiring book on learning how to forgive, with firsthand stories from those who have learned to let go of resentment and find peace. "When we learn to embrace forgiveness, it opens us up to healing, hope, and a new world of possibility." --Katherine Schwarzenegger Pratt Written with grace and understanding and based on more than twenty in-depth interviews and stories as well as personal reflections from Schwarzenegger Pratt herself, The Gift of Forgiveness is about one of the most difficult challenges in life--learning to forgive. Here, Katherine Schwarzenegger Pratt shows us what we can learn from those who have struggled with forgiveness, some still struggling, and others who have been able to forgive what might seem truly unforgivable. The book features experiences from those well-known and unknown, including Elizabeth Smart, who learned to forgive her captors; Sue Klebold, whose son, Dylan, was one of the Columbine shooters, learning empathy and how to forgive herself; Chris Williams, who forgave the drunken teenager who killed his wife and child; and of course Schwarzenegger Pratt's own challenges and path to forgiveness in her own life. All provide different journeys to forgiveness and the process--sometimes slow and thorny, sometimes almost instantaneous--by which they learned to forgive and let go. The Gift of Forgiveness is a perfect blend of personal insights, powerful quotations, and hard-won wisdom for those seeking a way to live with greater acceptance, grace, and peace.
