The story is heartbreaking, coming to you in his words, of his wife Myra’s murder in a senseless and terrifying act of pure and calculated hate. The book offers more – it reveals how Rev. Thompson forgave the young racist man, then helps you explore how to use forgiveness as a path to breakdown cultural and racial differences. The hope is that Called to Forgive will bring you an eye-opening understanding of forgiveness and its role in creating unity and peace.
