Theologies of Reconciliation: Les Sauvages et Le Sophistique

THESE thought provoking discussions on reconciliation and forgiveness are NAIITScontribution to the final days of Canadas Truth and Reconciliation Commission which so painfully and publicly exposed the government and church sponsored Residential Schools' attempts at cultural genocide in Canada. The intent of these schools parallel the Boarding School era in the USA - an era still not addressed there by the US government or church community with nearly the same level of authenticity or impact.

IN all, this journal is one of the best yet, containing robust discussion, significant personal testimonial, and alternative theological perspectives, built upon a strong commitment from its presenters to seek after the Creator of all things who is the reconciler of all of Creation.
