    Miroslav Volf is one of my favorite writers His book Exclusion and Embrace might be in my top ten reads of all time, and his work comparing Christian and Muslim understandings of God Allah A Christian Response is fantastic So I came to this book expecting a lot and I won t say it disappointed, but it was different then what I expected.Exclusion and Embrace was a heavy theological work that cut to the heart of Christian faith, with brilliant insights into Jesus death and how we ought to liv Miroslav Volf is one of my favorite writers His book Exclus...

    I m confused by my own response to this one For stretches, I found it quite dull Then I d be really into it for a bit In both cases, I was highlightingthan the typical number of passages When it was insightful, it was really so, but it wasn t an exciting read, despite being smart and often challenging.The first half of the book, on giving, is a nice bit of Christian philosophy on giving and the gift It both swats away the work of thinkers like Derrida and Caputo with a quick stroke an I m confused by my own response to this one For stretches, I found it quite dull Then I...

    Simply put this is an amazing work While I may still consider Exclusion and Embrace his most important work, Volf s writing on forgiveness and giving is his most accessible and, from a pastoral perspective, critical One will find much here that is helpful and that will provoke deep thought and perhaps some li...

    I do love to read, and I love to pass along my love of books, but there are very few books that I whole heartedly recommend Miraslov Volf s Free of Charge Giving and Forgiving in a Culture Stripped of Grace is one I would not only recommend, I would encourage every person who believes in God to read.Volf is a professor of theology at Yale Divinity School, but this is not an intimidating read Each of the two sections, giving and forgiving, begins with discussing how God does each He reminds u I do love to read, and I love to pass along my love of books, but there are very few books that I whole heartedly recommend Miraslov Volf s Free of Charge Giving and Forgiving in a Culture Stripped of Grace is one I would not only recommend, I would encou...

    His approach to the subject is very personal He argues that in giving and forgiving we have to follow God s lead We forgive because God forgives, we forgive without preconditions, because God does Many of his...

    Theological yet accessible, Volf enters into the life and response of the Christian life in light of God s giving and forgiving character This book is rich with context, content, and story to illustrate a life that can be beautifully lived Volf describes the book as a spiritual journey that exerc...

    Volf s Exclusion and Embrace is one of the best books on forgiveness But it is a deeply theological and philosophical book with a section on Hegel, for instance meaning it is unlikely to be read by the average lay person This volume is accessible and not an academic book at all While also updating Volf s deep thinking about the topic.Volf is from the Balkans and so his ideas have been refined in the crucible of political oppression, civil war, and genocide And yet he takes seriously the Ch Volf s Exclusion and Embrace is o...

    When thinking about grace and forgiveness of others, Volf really focuses on the forgiver, not the person to be forgiven This book is engaging, and it includes many relevant stories from Volf s life to illustrate how forgiveness can be found, even if the worst of circumstances He also includes a postlude that answers some of thesignificant arguments against the claims made in his book, as a true apologist would His writing is accessible to all, not just philosophers or those in the world When thinking about grace and forgiveness of others, Volf really focuses on the forgiver, not the person to be forgiven This book is engaging, and it includes many relevant stories from Volf s life to illustrate how forgiveness can be found, even if the worst of circumstances He also includes a po...

    I highly recommend this book theology applied to giving and forgiving, thoughtful, spiritual, and real, and written from the voice of Eastern influenced Christianity.
