Beyond Forgiveness: Reflections on Atonement is a groundbreaking new book that shows how acts of atonement—making amends, providing restitution, restoring balance—can relieve the pain of the past and give us a hopeful future.
As indispensable as forgiveness has been to the healing process throughout history, there is another equally profound action needed for ultimate 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 reconciliation the reconciliation process.
Edited by Phil Cousineau, this powerful book includes wisdom and reflections by high-profile thinkers and activists including Huston Smith, Jacob Needleman, Azim Khamisa, Michael Bernard Beckwith, Rabbi Michael Lerner, Arun Gandhi, Michael Nagler, Diane Hennacy Powell, James O’Dea, Ed Tick, Kate Dahlstedt, Richard J. Meyer, Katharine Dever and more.
