Forgiveness Papers Forgiveness Papers

A series of fifteen papers produced over a two-year period as part of the Embodying Forgiveness project run by the Centre for Contemporary Christianity in Ireland (CCCI). Drawing on a broad range of contributors, the papers aim to explore the meaning of forgiveness in the Bible and in different Christian traditions, and to ask about the implications of the practice of forgiveness for our society. We have not insisted on a particular definition or understanding of forgiveness among those who contributed to the series. Rather, our hope is that through this series of papers we will come to a fuller and more authentic understanding of forgiveness and its implication for church and society.
