    • June 2, 2009 Forgiveness: “A stunningly original strategy?” – United States Institute of Peace will host a discussion with Michael Henderson, a British journalist and author. His latest book, No Enemy to Conquer: Forgiveness in an Unforgiving World, published by Baylor University, “shows the real muscle behind forgiveness,” according to Publishers Weekly.“Retaliation is the instinctual response to perceived wrong. Historic grievances rarely are forgotten. They become part of a people’s collective memory……. A note of injustice not yet avenged is written into the script, which is then reenacted at moments of crisis. It is this that makes forgiveness so counterintuitive an idea. It is more than a technique of conflict resolution; it is a stunningly original strategy. Henderson will illustrate this insight with selected examples from his writings, followed by comments from the discussants: Joseph Montville, Margaret E. Smith, and David Smock.
