520    "While the murder of his wife devastated Anthony Thompson,
       he and three other relatives of victims chose to privately
       and publicly forgive the shooter. Years later, the church 
       and community still struggle to understand the family 
       members' deliberate choice to forgive the racist murderer.
       But as Charlestonians have witnessed these incredible acts
       of forgiveness, something significant has happened to the 
       community--black and white leaders and residents have 
       united, coming together peaceably and even showing acts of
       selfless love. This book is the account of Anthony's 
       wife's murder, the grief he experienced, and how and why 
       he made the radical choice to forgive the killer. But 
       beyond that, Anthony goes on to teach what forgiveness can
       and should look like in each of our lives--both personally,
       in our communities, and even in our nation. After much 
       pain, reflection, and study, Thompson shares how true 
       biblical love and mercy differ from the way these ideas 
       are reflected in our culture.Be inspired by this 
       remarkable story and discover how the difficult decision 
       to forgive can become the key to radical change."--
