The Way of Healing and Growth

Edited by: Bojan Zalec, Janez Juhant

This book considers reconciliation from various points of view: biblical foundations of reconciliation, philosophical aspects, Girardian and Bonhoefferian reflections on reconciliation, intellectual and (post)totalitarian history, psychotherapeutic approaches, etc. The contributions consider reconciliation also in very concrete (historical) contexts, with examples from Hungary, Russia, and Slovenia, and including those who are influenced by Islam and Christianity. Despite some disagreements, the common message is clear: human history and the present times are covered with blood, suffering, and negative emotions. Hence, the only acceptable way forward is to cultivate a culture of reconciliation. (Series: Theology East-West / Theologie Ost-West - Vol. 16)
