At the center of this attempt at healing a nation has been Archbishop Desmond Tutu, whom President Nelson Mandela named as Chairman of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. With the final report of the Commission just published, Archbishop Tutu offers his reflections on South Africa." "In No Future Without Forgiveness, Tutu argues that true reconciliations cannot be achieved by denying the past. But nor is it easy to reconcile when a nation "looks the beast in the eye." Rather than repeat platitudes about forgiveness, he presents a spirituality that recognizes the horrors people can inflict upon one another, and yet retains a sense of idealism about reconciliation."--Jacket." ;
