it was amazing

This book is on both my "read" and "to-read" shelves. It's one of those slender existential mind-reads like Tillich's "Courage to Be" -- it starts with some simple head nods and leads inexorably to a re-evaluation of the way we lead our lives. What would life be like if we considered everything a gift?
The second half deals with forgiveness. We are so far from his model, I'm not sure that we even properly confront people with their wrong acts -- so we have nothing to forgive them for.
To sum up, this book is an amazing gift to you, dear reader. You should read it, and if you don't you're making a grave error -- but you are forgiven.
