Miroslav Volf is the Founder and Director of Yale Center for Faith and Culture and Henry B. Wright Professor of Theology, Yale University Divinity School, New Haven, CT. He has written 15 books on the nature of God, interfaith understanding, religion and violence, identity, forgiveness, and religion in the public commons. Among his many books are A Spacious Heart (co-authored); Free of Charge: Giving and Forgiving in a Culture Stripped of Grace; The End of Memory: Remembering Rightly in a Violence World; and Against the Tide: Love in a Time of Petty Dreams and Persisting Enmities. His most recent book, published in January 2016, is Flourishing: Why We Need Religion in a Globalized World.
What is forgiveness and how do it and reconciliation inform the world we share with 7 billion others, many of whom do not share our culture or religion? How do we learn to embrace rather than reject difference? What roles do religion play in how we negotiate life together?
