Embodying Forgiveness is a project of the Centre for Contemporary Christianity in Ireland. The project is meant to assist Christians in Northern Ireland to reflect on their understanding of forgiveness in their spiritual life and to face the challenge of living toward forgiveness in their daily life (i.e., their spiritual life, relationships, church, and community). To provide a solid grounding for the project, Graham sketches the importance of forgiveness, the psychology of forgiveness, repentance, justice, truth, memory, criminals and victims, and community. He also surveys activities undertaken through the project.
