  • We are at our human best when we give and forgive. But we live in a world in which it makes little sense to do either one. In our increasingly graceless culture, where can we find the motivation to give? And how do we learn to forgive when forgiving seems counterintuitive or even futile? A deeply personal yet profoundly thoughtful book, "Free of Charge" explores these questions- and the further questions to which they give rise - in light of Gods generosity and Christs sacrifice for us. Miroslav Volf draws from popular culture as well as from a wealth of literary and theological sources, weaving his rich reflections around the sturdy frame of Pauls vision of Gods grace and Martin Luthers interpretation of that vision. Blending the best of theology and spirituality, he encourages us to echo in our own lives Gods generous giving and forgiving. A fresh examination of two practices at the heart of the Christian faith giving and forgiving the Archbishop of Canterburys Lenten study book for 2006 is at the same time an introduction to Christianity. Even more, it is a compelling invitation to Christian faith as a way of life.
    "Miroslav Volf, one of the most celebrated theologians of our day, offers us a unique interweaving of intense reflection, vivid and painfully personal stories and sheer celebration of the giving God ...I cannot remember having read a better account of what it means to say that Jesus suffered for us in our place." - Dr Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury.
