Examines the range of responses to the September 11, 2001 (9/11) act of terrorism on the World Trade Center, such as calls for revenge, justice, self‐criticism, repentance, and forgiveness. This is followed by a comparison of Jewish and Christian responses to requests for forgiveness made by perpetrators of atrocities in Nazi Germany and in South Africa. Concludes with the hope that the book will help bring us closer to the biblical vision of love founded on justice, compassion, and self‐transformation.

Keywords:   9/11, compassion, forgiveness, justice, love, Nazi Germany, repentance, revenge, September 11, 2001, South Africa, terrorism
