This book is not only about the evils of apartheid, but also about how a nation was able to move toward healing and forgiveness through the formation of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. Desmond Tutu was appointed to head up this commission that would offer amnesty to all of those who had been involved in political acts of torture and violence during the period of apartheid in South Africa, but only if those that perpetrated the violence came forward, applied for amnesty, and told the truth about what they had done. The victims of the crimes were also allowed to come and tell their stories and ask their questions. Within these stories are remarkable tales of how people who had been tormented or had their loved ones tormented or even killed were able to reach out and search healing themselves by forgiving those who had done this to chbishop Tutu tells his story and the story of his nation and how that South African has been and is being healed through the power of truth and forgiveness. He speaks about a lot of of the trials and tribulations that the commission went through, such as Winnie Mandela's part in the atrocities that she allegedly had a part in. The info of some of the torture stories are hard to take, but important to tell and to hear so that we know that evil exists in appalling ways in the world, but that evil can be overcome through e trees that were sacrificed to create this book were well worth the sacrifice, because within its pages are the leaves for the healing of the nations. When Jesus hung on the cross, evil having done its best to him, he cried "Father forgive them for they know not what they do." He could have called twelve legions of angels and destroyed the whole lot of them, but he answers evil of the worst kind with forgiveness and reconciliation. This notice and the notice of the book is what is required in all of locations today were we are causing one another pain and suffering and can see no method around or out of the dilemma. I believe that this kind of move is what is important to heal the Middle East conflict and all of the other feuds and racist hatred that has gone on in the world. The only method forward to any type of life giving future is through forgiveness. I recommend this book to everyone who ions or comments contact me at
This spiritual/religious based book is presented differently than Gandhi, Tolstoy, and other philosophers that I have read. This book is more rooted in the happenings of the Truth and Reconciliation Committee, a board that Desmond Tutu headed after apartheid ended. The goal of this board was to grant amnesty to individuals and to learn of the travesties that occurred during apartheid. Tutu spends time to talk about the reasons and purpose of the board while lending several chapters to discuss several of the eye-witness reports and happenings described while heading the ter he sets up the purpose and ideals behind the board along with some of the testimony from individuals, he then begins to dive into his dialogue about what these happenings mean and how they relate to his overall conclusion of "No Future Without Forgiveness." This book did two amazing things for me: First, it introduced me to apartheid, something I have not read too much about. Tutu described the conditions not only pre-apartheid, but after Nelson Mandela became the president of South Africa and other similar events. Second, I was able to see him unfold his spiritual plan of how the country was to move forward after so a lot of years of people being dehumanized and a large social structure was the combination of the historical and philosophical elements that created this book unique to me. I highly recommend it.
Desmond Tutu is simply a brilliant man. I had the opportunity to meet him several years ago and didn't really appreciate at the time what kind of work he'd done. I read this to fully understand the idea of forgiveness which is often seen as a weakness. He lays out in clear terms how forgiveness cannot be a weakness because it is harder to do than revenge. It is harder to hold someone elses actions from defining and confining you the rest of your life than to give in to them and act upon the instinct to damage your perpetrators back. The fact that these eye-witness accounts come from people who could look their assailants in the face and search some humanity after all was said and done is wonderful and humbling. I would recommend this read for anyone and especially for those who are trying to search a method to cope with victimhood or perhaps to do self-reflection on your own faults and how you may have damage others and need to be freed of that defining action.
I originally became aware of this book when two various writers in a leadership journal (The International Journal of Servant Leadership) created reference to it.I was moved throughout the book by Archbishop Tutu's eloquence and his ability to look for the amazing in people while, at the same time, acknowledging their potential for monstrous evil. As chair of South Africa's Truth and Reconciliation Committe, he had a first hand view of both. Yes, it is a story of South Africa's transition from apartheid to democracy. And, it's a story about how all of us, as God's children, can turn away from our innate goodness or honor it--even in the most difficult of circumstances.He reminds us of the African idea of ubuntu--we are who we are through our relationships with other people. The choice is ours.
No Future without Forgiveness is a unbelievable acc of the remarkable work of the South African Truth and Reconciliation Committees. Archbishop Tutu offers an inside view of this work, which he chaired and guided, acknowledging some of the bumps in the street as well as the heart-breaking and heart-healing times of success. He provides "texture" by recounting info of the lived experience, in his own familiar, sometimes humorous, always honest style. He also describes something of how significant the example of the Truth and Reconciliation work has been in other afflicted parts of the world--in Rwanda and Ireland, for instance. Whether a reader is hoping for encouragement and guidance for truth and reconciliation in the private sphere or hopeful signs of God's working out the Reign of justice, peace, and universal reconciliation, she will be inspired and grateful.
Desmond Tutu has been in the middle of extreme tensions in re-ordering government and communal life. He has seen and heard some of the most atrocious deeds that can be dealt out by devious officials and citizens. Through it all he has insisted upon the need for openess and trust amongst even the most militant and hurtful perpetrators of injustice. Forgivenss in the political/social realm has principles underlying it that can be fruitfully applied by individuals in their relationships, as well. The nature of forgiveness is critical for people to understand if they are to live together on this planet.
Bishop Tutu chaired the South African Truth and Reconciliation Commission whose task it was to give voice to the victims of apartheid and to foster reconciliation between the races in South Africa following the transfer of power there. It's a fast read, which info atrocities committed during apartheid and eloquently discusses how both the blacks and whites were victims of this intrinsically evil 's a book written from the heart of a man who understands that revenge offers no hope to society. There are brief references comparing the South Africa "success story" to other troubled spots in the globe where revenge killing has gone on for generations. The title says it all, "No Future Without Forgiveness". An interesting read that's worth the time.
This book was recommended to me by a mate who attended provides perspective on the history of Harvard and the societal expectations in a consumer oriented society. As I think back, here are subjects that interested me: Liberal arts versus professional training. Research expertise versus ability to teach. The role and failure of grading. Boundaries between the institution and the law. Parental expectations and involvement. The influence of money. I recommended the book to mates who are professors and mates who have teenage kids.I liked learning about the early history of rowing at Harvard!
Harvard did not cause the commercialization of higher education but it succumbed to it. In Harry Lewis' words, the top institutions were `overtaken' by it, a polite method of saying that they did not possess the values or the will to counter it. The nub of Lewis' argument is that Harvard now neglects to educate the whole person. Students between the ages of 18 and 22 are no longer children, but neither are they mature adults. The process of moving to mature adulthood (in addition to the process of taking coursework) was once a high priority of our top universities. Now, students are `pleased' rather than educated. We create them happy; we satisfy them, which is to say we let them to dictate the terms of their student experience. Where students were once counseled and guided by doctorally-trained institutional mainstays, with long memories and a respect for the successful elements of the institution's traditions, we now have `student services professionals' to create them happy. Lewis compares the modern university to a daycare center. This may sound harsh, but it really isn't and Lewis' arguments are grounded in deep institutional history and a thoughtful consideration of key problems and events. Most of all he laments the absence of core curricula. He is not calling for a monolithic, soul-searing program of Gradgrindism, with endless recitations and an ethos of threats and intimidation. Far from it. All he is seeking is a handful of courses (say, 10, of which students would take 5) designed to serve as a foundation, a common experience that would unite students both socially and culturally as well as intellectually. Now there is no core. There may be distribution requirements; there may be explorations of disciplinary methods, but a content-based core, even a modest one . . . no. Editorial writers, legislators and naïve trustees often want that `universities would be run like businesses.' Flash: they already are, in a lot of destructive ways, and more's the pity. Lewis' position as a former Dean of Harvard College, with 30+ years of experience at Harvard, adds weight and point to his observations. His book is candid, engaging and free of pulled punches. Everyone who cares about the plight of higher education today (from parents to trustees to faculty and prospective students) should read this book. Few go to Harvard, but Harvard's influence is enormous. Their decisions or indecision are replicated by their imitators and all research universities and research colleges can be affected.
“The role of moral education has withered, conflicting with the imperative to give students and theirs what they for the cash they are paying.”If you look at the history of higher education, you would see a clear decline in moral education. Colleges and universities of the past were tied very close with the church thus moral teaching came directly from the church’s teachings. As time progress the connection between higher education and the church a lot of ways the university has deviated from its original goals. The curriculum from 17th century would be completely alien to professors and students today. As the years progressed, the goals and curriculum has changed, and in his book Excellence without a Soul, Harry R. Lewis retells the history of Harvard and the problems confronting the renowned school. As the former dean of Harvard College, Lewis was involved in plenty of faculty feuds, student protests, and national scandals. A lot of times he saw the school take the simple method over the intelligent route. A lot of times he saw the school bend to pressure instead of standing firm on values. He states late in the book, “The college is more interested in making students happier than making them better.”This is a very interesting book. There are plenty of resources criticizing higher education, but rarely are those criticisms written by someone with such high credentials as Lewis.When I picked up this book I was really looking for a book that addresses the university’s need to approach morality. Though a lot of the book is dedicated to the history of Harvard and its challenge in every aspect, Lewis does spend a bit of time confronting the problem of morality.He says it bluntly, “Harvard today tiptoes away from moral education, small interested in providing it and embarrassed to admit it does not want to do so.” Schools have completely abandoned the idea of morality, mainly because in a postmodern culture morality is a questionable idea.I found this book to be extremely interesting. I never would have thought working at a prestigious school such as Harvard would be that difficult, but it actually sounds worse.
Lewis a former Harvard dean seems to have written this to obtain lots of things off his chest. Some parts, such as the section of why "grade inflation" is not so awful, are quite interesting. Some others on sexual harassment/assault are very dated. A nice read.
As Samuel Johnson was to James Boswell, so Harvard is to Harry Lewis...Lewis is a Giant in the History of Harvard, up to this very year, when he was influential in Harvard's Computer Science program receiving a $400,000,000 grant... the largest in the University's history. His accounting, herein, is very insightful.... and "inciteful".
Lewis's book points to the current deep crisis that faces American higher education. Those of us who've participated in the system professionally are well aware of its problems. Ironically, one of those issues is that practically every school wants to be like Harvard. For those of us who went elsewhere, this i like reading the memoirs of a kid of privilege. It is hard to feel sorry for Harvard. At the same time, Lewis cogently demonstrates that higher education has indeed been loosed from its moorings in the liberal arts. His is a amazing book to bring attention to a serious issue in our business-oriented culture.
Harry Lewis argues persuasively that colleges have abdicated their role of shaping students' hero and moral standing, instead infantilizing students by sheltering them from learning from their own mistakes. Rather than using mistakes as character-building teachable moments where private growth can occur, they let students to self-segregate by class or ethnicity; they create themselves appealing to students by shallowly providing what students myopically say they want, not what the college believes they need in terms of an education, in part because current definitions of what "a liberal education" should be are so flaccid that they leave a vacuum into which students (and parents) pour their own intentions. The effect is that colleges are creating conditions in which the students expect to “blame the system” when something happens to them (personal conflicts, lower-than-expected grade, etc.) and as a effect are no better socialized when they graduate than when they ere's more to his argument than this, but that's the essence of it. He manages to connect this root cause to such contemporary issues as lapses in academic integrity, grade-point-grubbing, and dealing with cases of non-academic misconduct (an extreme example being date rape). There is some repetition in the book, which makes the argument a bit sprawling, but the prose is a pleasure to read and highly engaging.While the book is written from a Harvard perspective, much of what it says applies to other "Research I universities" (now called "Doctoral/research universities--extensive", apparently), and it certainly makes me as an individual instructor ask myself: What will I do to give my students a possible respond to "what's the most necessary thing you learned in college"? How will I challenge them to understand why they are here, not just the mastery of the skills I happen to teach? What will I visibly do to be the kind of role model who communicates that hero DOES matter, and how can I visibly lead by example to present what "good character" means?(For parents and college-bound students thinking about what college should or will be like, I recommend reading this together with the recently released Gallup/Purdue Index Inaugural Report - google it - which can be downloaded free if you provide your email address.)
Harry Lewis book about the history of Harvard seems reasonable, until in the final ten or so pages, when Lewis launches an unwarranted private attack on six years' Harvard president Lawrence Summers (for example: Summers “chaotic lurching”). The emotional outbursts lead the reader to question the overall credibility of the re rational sources characterize Summers' resignation as the effect of a spoiled, petulant group of professors of the Harvard faculty of arts and sciences, a group whose over-inflated ego and too much power rose up to drive away a leader who was famous with the students and was leading Harvard in a better direction.
"Forgiveness" by Ace McCloud gave me such inspiration. I gained the knowledge that forgiveness may not be an simple task, but in the long run, it is worth it because you are able to move on, and not be stuck in the past. I found a quote in this book that I absolutely love, "Forgiveness also allows for healing and helps you to move on to bigger and better things in life." This quote hits home because I am a stubborn person, and I do sometimes keep a grudge. The holding on of something that may have damage you or the other party, will only create you sick. It can lead to total depression and anxiety. These are simple to cure, but a broken heart takes time to 's just like the story of the woman in the book that went through a divorce. I myself am going through the same thing right now, and it extremely difficult. Just like that woman, it is hard to allow other people in, and it's hard to trust again. Hopefully, for both of us, the healing process can other part of the book that I really liked was, "Make a Love List: will support begin your eyes and mind to all the love and happiness in the world." Wow, that quote makes me feel amazing all over. All you need to do is " Write down all the people you love. Contain relatives, mates and pets. Now write down all the things you love." This is an simple task, and it helps begin your eyes because you can see all of those that love you as you love them. Life is too short, not to forgive. Take this list, and hang in on a mirror, or some put that you are sure to see it. It will support you to forgive.
The act of forgiveness is actually one of the bravest things you can do, both for yourself and the one who has betrayed you. I particularly like the cover of this book, not that it makes a difference to the interior. It signifies forgiveness to me and is comforting to look at. Forgiveness is extremely necessary to our survival and a satisfied life. You can't be satisfied when you're always holding grudges and pulling yourself down. Your anger at someone else will only damage you, both mentally and, sometimes, physically, too. If you are having problem forgiving someone and can't see how to obtain rid of the internal mental pain (those thoughts can be tormenting), grab a copy of this book and read it. You will feel better once you learn how to forgive others.
The book itself is very inspirational and some amazing ideas on how to forgive someone or a group of people. I personally likes the part in chapter two about writing down the people you love and to visualize each of those persons. The other amazing method of dealing with forgiveness is that your supposed to think positive and set positive goals for the future, which I never thought would support with forgiveness, well at least not the setting of positive goals. I really enjoyed this book and I think you will too if you are willing to download it and give it a try. :)
This globe is full of so a lot of people. Out of all the ones you know, there are often several people who damage you at some time during life. So, to expect that people will never betray you or distrust you is actually foolishness. I believe that like me, a lot of of you might have also had bitter experiences with people you know. I understand that betrayal hurts a lot, but keeping the grudge and the pain inside, hurts even more. I also have had negative experiences with the people I cared for the most. But, keeping the pain inside was affecting me alone, as the doers were not even aware of the disturbance they had caused in my life. One day, I came across this book. The title was attractive, so I downloaded it and began reading it. In this miraculous book, the author has listed a lot of exercises that lead you towards forgiveness. I have tried a lot of of these techniques and all of these are quite effective. You all must also test these as they will support you in getting rid of the disturbance going on deep inside you. Test it soon and obtain rid of the pain. The wrongdoers do not deserve even a pinch of a zone in your mind and heart!!!

Forgiveness is a part of my day to day experience. I have learned so much from this book that I had no idea about. From the book am now aware of the benefits of forgiveness.

All in all, this book will support someone to understand how to allow go and forgive others, using helpful true life examples. I would recommend this to anyone who has to heal poor relationships with people, anyone who can't forgive themselves or others.
This book was excellent. I have always struggled with having a very stubborn personality and even when someone would apologize to me I would take hours, days, or even weeks before I even considered accepting their apology. Sometimes it was because I blamed myself for an argument and didn’t feel I deserved to be apologized to. Ace McCloud’s book helped me learn that forgiveness is very necessary and you cannot forgive someone until you forgive yourself. This book provides a lot of activities to support learn how to forgive others as well as yourself. A fast and perfect read, this book is great!
I have always held pent up anger in my heart towards those who have wronged me. I know that you should forgive others, but I have always had problem doing so. This book was great! Mostly because of the exercises. Each chapter had a number of exercises, (like visualization, positive thinking, meditation, journaling, etc.) which really walk you through steps to take to forgive others. I found that a lot of of the exercises, but particularly the one on self-forgiveness, was helpful to me. I realized most of my anger towards others was really misplaced on myself. So THANK YOU! Amazing find, and I love the eBook format.
Forgiveness is something I struggle with on a everyday basis but this book has helped me to see that although it's hard to forgive it's even harder to not forgive and move forward. I have learned that forgiveness is a amazing method to hold a healthy balance in life and in your mind.
Blockchain bitcoin makes me understand more quickly what happened in the international and domestic blockchain crypocurrency. It also makes me understand the field I wish to know. The web design is also very good. Moreover, downloading on the mobile phone is also convenient to visit. The knowledge has also expanded
Finance and economics give me the feeling that it is very professional and comprehensive. The classification of news is also very humanized and covers a wide range. All I wish to see are together. The cryptocurrency shop is also very easy and simple for users to query~
