Summary Forgiveness and Power in the Age of Atrocity: Servant Leadership as a Way of Life speaks to categorical human transgressions in the hope that readers will be compelled to examine their own prejudices and engage the moral responsibility to evoke in their own personal life, work life, and larger national communities a more humane and life-giving coexistence. In Forgiveness and Power, leaders are not coercive but persuasive, and recognized as those who love, serve, and heal others
