Brookes contends that Christians are called by God to forgive, and to forgive in order to be reconciled to the person who is forgiven. He explores this by discussing a number of theological and relational themes and realities: the Incarnation; love as action; love in relation to peacemaking; confrontation and anger; credibility in forgiveness; remembering; reconciliation in relation to sacrifice; the Resurrection; and Pentecost.
