Forgiveness and Other Acts of Love
Author(s): Stephanie Dowrick
This may be the most compassionate, inspiring and supportive book you will ever read - and the most challenging
Stephanie Dowrick has re-examined the six great humane virtues - courage, fidelity, restraint, generosity, tolerance and forgiveness - and brought them completely up to date.
At a time when most belief systems seem exhausted or irrelevant, she shows how these qualities, far from being dull or constraining, have immensely far-reaching personal and social benefits.
By constantly emphasising choice, self-responsibility and care for others, she redefines these virtues in the light of contemporary psychotherapy, as well as inspiration drawn from the world's ancient mystical traditions.
Moving with ease from the most profound consideration of life's ultimate meaning to diverse, memorable stories of everyday living, Stephanie Dowrick gives us the most precious gift of all - the opportunity to find true value in our lives.
