Inspiring Forgiveness consists of twelve true stories of people—from the Dalai Lama to Congressman John Lewis—who have endured great pain at the hands of others and have found a way to open themselves to forgiveness in its many forms. Each story is followed by extraordinary poems that speak to forgiveness as well as a collection of over 100 inspiring quotations.
