Forgiveness and Reconciliation

Experiences of Faith – Fields of Action

Forgiveness and reconciliation are main themes of the Christian faith. This study approaches the topic from a practical and pastoral theological perspective. How do people live as »experts« in forgiveness and reconciliation within their relationships? What role does their faith play in this? Peter Kohlgraf wants to encourage people in learning to deal more competently with the topic of reconciliation and forgiveness. This becomes quite concrete when people in (couple) relationships wind up in hurtful situations but often do not have adequately reflected reconciliation strategies. Peter Kohlgraf asks about the role of the church as an »expert for reconciliation« and shows perspectives in the various pastoral fields of action.

  • Impressive combination of theological reflection and pastoral intuition
  • Encouragement for everyday life in learning to live as a reconciled person
