While it may seem like a simple enough act, forgiveness is a difficult, delicate process that, if executed correctly, can be a profoundly moving and deep learning experience. Whatever the scenario may be-whether you need to make peace with a certain situation, with a loved one or friend, or with a total stranger-the process of forgiveness is an art and a science.

This hands-on guide walks readers through the process in 8 key steps. How can we become forgivingly fit? How can we identify the source of our pain and inner turmoil? How can we find meaning in what we have suffered, or learn to forgive ourselves? What should we do when forgiveness feels particularly hard? All these questions and more are answered here, leading us to become more tolerant, compassionate, and hopeful human beings.

Reviews and Endorsements

'This book has the potential to enrich and improve more lives than any psychology book in decades. Robert Enright is the pioneer of the psychology of forgiveness, and his great wisdom, experience, and very practical advice are all compiled in this highly readable guide. Don't give up on forgiveness in your life until you read this book and try its proven strategies.'
- Frank Farley, PhD, Former President, American Psychological Association

'As the principal of a Belfast primary school in one of the most deprived areas of the UK, I have witnessed first-hand the damage to children that can be caused by sectarian conflict. I have also witnessed the powerful effect the forgiveness curriculum can bring to the process of emotional healing. 8 Keys to Forgiveness is an invaluable resource for adults seeking emotional and relational healing through forgiveness. The keys discussed, such as understanding the inherent worth of all people, provide a way out of the resentment that can destroy lives and communities, and a detailed road map for the journey towards inner peace. I highly recommend this practical guide for anyone struggling with the effects of injustice against them, whatever that injustice might be.'
- Claire Hilman, Principal, Ligoniel Primary School, Belfast, Northern Ireland

'Forgiveness can protect us from unhealthy anger and anxiety, heal our deep wounds, and even save our lives. In this book, Robert Enright offers a smooth path on the journey of forgiving. His advice and reminders are eminently useful to those just embarking on this journey, and they continue to provide great insight as we become experienced in practicing forgiveness.'
- Tina Huang, Professor and Chair, National Chung-Cheng University, leading researcher on the psychology of forgiveness in Taiwan
