Inspiring Courage

Buy The Book

It takes courage to live a human life. We all have varying degrees of courage. For some, it is buried deep in hearts and psyches; for others, it is a bright light that guides every step. But, for all of us, finding courage can be a choice we make every day – often in the quietest of ways. There is great courage in living life to the fullest, living with authenticity and a sense of alignment with one’s most deeply held values. And sometimes, simply getting up every day and putting one foot in front of the other is an act of immense courage.

How can we live our lives in the light of greater forgiveness? What does it mean to forgive or to be forgiven? Why is forgiveness a struggle for so many, especially as we move into maturity and take stock of goals, dreams, and disappointments? In her deeply inspiring new book, Barbara Bonner offers the reader a roadmap built from the wisdom of poets, philosophers, and others who have found the path to forgiveness against all odds. From Desmond Tutu to Margaret Atwood, from Mary Oliver to Congressman John Lewis, Bonner weaves together the words of scholars, visionaries, poets, and activists to create a timely, gorgeously crafted, and essential volume that will help the readers find their way to the light of greater forgiveness.
