Most people will readily acknowledge that sin and guilt form an all-too-familiar part of what it is to be human. This appears to be true, whether or not these experiences are thought to have a religious connotation. Why is this? And why do some people find it relatively easy to accept forgiveness (whether human or divine), while others remain gripped by a sense of remorse? These are questions that confront all people involved in pastoral care, and Christian pastors in particular need to explore them thoroughly if they are to exercise that care with skill and discernment. Basing her observations on true stories, Mary Anne Coate examines both the theological and the psychological dimensions of the subject, leading the reader toward a robust understanding of the often hazardous journey from sin through guilt to forgiveness.
