IN THE MAIL: Connie Domino, “The Law of Forgiveness” (Penguin Group Nov. 2009).
Worth reading in connection with two recent articles in Azure:
Yotam Benziman, “Forgiveness and Remembrance of Things Past” (Azure No. 35, Winter 5769/ 2009)
[T]he most common perception of forgiveness is that of “negating the wrong.” Richards, Hampton, and Murphy present us with two possible answers to the question of who is supposed to do the negating. Richards suggests the offender, who repents; Hampton and Murphy suggest the wronged individual, who forgives. But there is a third possibility: The sinner and the sinned-against can erase the past together.
Robert Enright, “The Radical Meaning of Forgiveness,” (Azure No. 38, Autumn 5770/ 2009).
And an old JCI post on the topic, worth reading again: "Forgiveness."
