"What does it mean to be compassionate in a self-centred, power-hungry world? Can we follow the example of Jesus Christ and deeply enter into the suffering of our fellow human beings? Can we be weak with the weak, vulnerable with the vulnerable, powerless with the powerless? These meditations by three teachers of pastoral theology challenge us to make God's compassion manifest through the disciplines of prayer and action." "After years of study and discussion, the authors look at compassion with a new perspective. They place compassion at the heart of a Christian life in a world governed for far too long by principles of power and destructive control. Compassion, not merely an eraser of human mistakes, is a force of action - the expression of God's love for us and our love for God and one another."--BOOK JACKET.
-Publisher

In this provocative essay on that least understood virtue, compassion, the authors challenge themselves and us with these questions: Where do we place compassion in our lives? Is it enough to live a life in which we hurt one another as little as possible? Is our guiding ideal a life of maximum pleasure and minimum pain? Compassion answers no.After years of study and discussion among themselves, and with men and women at the very centre of national politics, the authors look at compassion with a vigorous new perspective. They place compassion at the heart of a Christian life in a world governed far too long by principles of power and destructive control. Compassion, no longer merely an eraser of human mistakes, is a force of prayer and action - the expression of God's love for us and our love for God and one another.Compassion is a book that says no to a compassion of guilt and failure and yes to a compassionate love that pervades our spirit and moves us to action. Henri Nouwen, Donald McNeill, and Douglas Morrison have written a moving document on what it means to be a Christian in a difficult time.
