Anyone who wants to know the truth about the Nicaraguan Revolution should come and see with their own eyes. Then let them make their own judgment, as the authors of this book have. Those who cannot come should read this book and then make their judgment. Rev. Ernesto Cardenal, Minister of Culture, Nicaragua Three things are striking about this small volume. The first is the timeliness of the topic. The resolution of the problems of such Third World countries as Nicaragua and the Philippines are weighting the future of our world. The second is the importance to people of faith around the glove as to how our religious heritage can inform our political judgments on current revolutionary situations. The third is the exciting and refreshing 'doing of theology' in the context of group experience and group reflection - in this case by a group comprised almost entirely of women. Robert DeWitt, formerly Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Pennsylvania This book must be read by every American struggling with the question: 'What is the truth about U.S. involvement in Nicaragua? Delores S. Williams, Muhlenberg College Revolutionary Forgiveness is a testimony... to the power of the Nicaraguan struggle to change lives and to call citizens of the that very superpower that seeks to crush it to repentance. Rosemary Ruether, Garrett-Evangelical Seminary and Northwestern Seminary Empathetic and daring, this unusual book, rooted in a feminist perspective, has a message for every North American about the revolutionary power of forgiveness. Archie Smith, Jr., Pacific School of Religion.
