Forgiveness Remembers: A Journey into the Heart of God
By P Farren & R Miller

Book, £6.99 / Kindle Edition, £3.99

Forgive and forget is the mantra. But what if the path to true peace were forgive and remember?

This is the radical and liberating truth shared by two authors who bridge the Catholic Protestant divide. Together they show that true forgiveness lies the other side of grace-filled remembering and not denial-laden forgetting. True forgiveness is seldom the work of a moment. Its path does not run straight and its myriad difficulties can leave us trapped in a circle of hate and despair. Forgiveness Remembers sensitively shows how God s grace can break this circle, and how we can find ourselves caught up in a spiral of hope that leads into the freedom and compassion of God.

This book is for anyone who struggles with forgiveness, with a grace that can seem so unfair, but who hopes to know God’s grace and to continue the journey into His heart.


‘We cannot change the past but we are responsible for how we remember the past. This book addresses such a crucial subject for our generation. As the media confronts us daily with a world full of conflict and hatred, the authors show us there is another story to tell, and another way.’

The Rt. Rev. and Rt. Hon. Dr. Richard Chartres, retired Bishop of London

‘This book, drawn from the personal experience of the authors and their communities, is full of practical thinking for anybody and everybody who struggles to forgive, and I warmly commend it.’

Cardinal Cormac Murphy O’Connor, Archbishop Emeritus of Westminster
