Many people feel guilt and anger about hurt inflicted on them by the actions of others. Physical and emotional wounds cause serious inabilities to forgive and function in many aspects of their lives. German Benedictine, Anselm Grün discusses the phenomenon of forgiveness and reconciliation from the Bible’s perspective in relation to today’s society —examining both personal as well as political dimensions. He describes steps of the reconciliation and offers practical meditation exercises that will help us become accepting of ourselves and others, and to open ourselves to the accepting love of God.
Anselm Grün OSB, is spiritual leader and director of the Abbey Münsterschwarzach near Würzburg, Germany.

He is one of the most widely read Christian writers of our time with over 300 titles published, which have sold well over 14 million copies in more than 30 languages.
