Synopsis

How can individuals live a life of forgiveness in a world so full of injustice and indifference? This haunting question spurred author Kent Nerburn to write Calm Surrender. As he recounts the experiences of people who have suffered much and asked for little, he takes readers on a moving journey, urging them to remember that "forgiveness cannot be a disengaged, pastel emotion."
