Book Review: Mere Christianity (Book 3, Chapter 7: Forgiveness)

Book 3, Chapter 7: Forgiveness

Lewis says that forgiveness doesn’t necessarily involve liking the person who has wronged us. We can, and indeed should, forgive those who have been unjust to us, but that doesn’t necessarily imply that we should also learn to like them.

What a relief. I know or knew a lot of people who I don’t really like, but I acknowledge my need to forgive them. God knows how many people I have also hurt and offended in the past, and how I must have been unlikable, too.
