Since 9/11 the word hate is used ever more frequently and the attitude expressed more openly, but we often see hate in others and refuse to take ownership of our own. This is both a psychological, theological and sociological analysis of hate, an argument for the moral imperative of moving from hate to justice and mercy in our dealings with one another. Such movement is possible because the various levels of hate range across a continuum from extremely destructive to constructive patterns of hating. The book discusses each level of hatred and explores how its is possible for hatred to become compassion.
