Profound wisdom from noted writers on following forgiveness with making amendsAs indispensable as forgiveness has been to the healing process throughout history, there is another equally profound action that is needed for reconciliation, which Arun Gandhi, grandson of Mohandas Gandhi, calls "the other side of the coin." Turning over the coin of forgiveness, we discover atonement, the half-hidden, much-overlooked other half of the reconciliation processIncludes 15 essays and interviews by high-profile thinkers and activist including: Huston Smith, Jacob Needleman, Arun Gandhi, and Azim Khamisa Discussed atonement as a process that can enable us to become unstuck from the past and live in the presentThis rich and powerful book shows how acts of atonement can relieve us of the pain of the past and give us a hopeful future.
