THE POWER OF FORGIVENESS!! March 30 2008
By Loves To Read - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
What does it mean to forgive someone? How do you go about forgiving? Does it mean that we forgo justice? Is forgiving simply a spiritual experience between an individual and God or does it play out on many different levels? These and other questions are addressed in this look at forgiveness by filmmaker Martin Doblmeier (Bonhoeffer). It looks at real life examples of forgiveness such as the Amish in the wake of the killing of five Amish schoolgirls that ripped their community. It shows the speech Elie Weisel made to the German Bundestadt challenging them to ask forgiveness of the Jewish people and then two months later, the speech made to the Israeli Knesset by the President of Germany asking forgiveness on behalf of Germany. It looks at forgiveness on many different levels including the physical level and how forgiveness (or lack of it) affects us physically and shows examples of forgiveness being taught in elementary schools as well as being offered in colleges. It shows three women who lost loved ones in 9/11 who travel to Lebanon to experience the Garden of Forgiveness established by the Lebanese and wonder why there is so much opposition to establishing a Garden of Forgiveness on the WTC site. While many might want to limit forgiveness to a theological discussion (and it certainly is a major if not THE major theological doctrine), this film shows the power of forgiveness beyond just the theological implications and how our world could be different if forgiveness were taken seriously and practiced by everyone. At the very least, this should be a wonderful conversation starter for those serious about studying forgiveness. Think of the political ramifications if candidates running for office would stand up and ask forgiveness of their opponents when they say something in error or intentionally malign them or if corporate leaders would ask forgiveness of shareholders for the mistakes they made in the name of corporate profits and greed. Perhaps, like most things, it works best if it starts from the individual and community level and works upward. That means it starts with you and me. [...]

Great, upbeat, positive film with important message! Dec 12 2007
By Film Aficionado - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
A film everyone should see - the interviews are timely and relevant, the stories compelling...it's a transformative film, if you're open to its message of forgiveness. And if you're not open to it, this will help you become open.

Super basis for discussion Dec 11 2008
By Mona G. Affinito - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I can't believe I didn't review this before. This was really useful for our forgiveness study group. One segment at a time, we discussed the immediate and far-reaching implications. We were a group of six, the "forgiveness team" resulting from a seven-week study I had led at Shepherd of the Hill Presbyterian Church in Chaska, MN. For that study we had used Wilma Derksen's little (and very effective) Bible-based study guide. We plan to use this DVD as the core of a one-day forgiveness workshop sometime in the Spring. Each segment is powerful in demonstrating one of the many facets of forgiveness. From my point of view, this DVD has the advantage of not being Bible-based and useful, therefore, for a much broader audience.

Very powerful and thought-provoking film Feb. 21 2008
By Cool Reading - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Consisting of several stories, this film explores human struggle to overcome various kinds of bad experiences, and to find peace of the soul through forgiveness. I recommend this film to everyone who looks for possibilities of reconciliation with the past in some way.

it is Ok, but I forgive. Sept. 22 2010
By canrancherboy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Great subject matter and concept and I do hope more like it continue to come forth. However, I was hoping for more, more depth, more focus, more heartfelt. The cover is misleading, the experts are minimal in thier input. It was worth watching and a very important lesson in life for those of us that live with fear and resentment.
