Should we always forgive? Is forgiveness always even possible? Does forgiveness enable evil? Does it sacrifice justice? Are there any limits?

In a world where the ugliness of rage and retaliation are driving the story line, Unconditional? offers the beauty, reconciliation, and total restoration of forgiveness the way Jesus taught us to live it. More than just another biblical exposition, this audiobook begins with the horror of the Holocaust as it explores what forgiveness means—and how far it should go—in the real world of murder, rape, child abuse, genocide, and other atrocities. With honesty, compassion, and depth, author Brian Zahnd incorporates some of the most compelling and difficult thoughts on the subject—from history’s writers to philosophers, and theologians—always returning to the example Jesus gave us with his life and his death.

Quotes & Awards

  • “The author may shake up his presumed readership of fellow evangelical Christians with his challenges to red-state America, and his demanding yet hopeful arguments deserve attention from Christians of all persuasions.” 

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “As a pastor, I have read many excellent books on forgiveness. Brian Zahnd’s is among the finest I’ve ever read. This book is filled with inspiring stories of forgiveness and keen theological and biblical insights. If I had to recommend just one book on forgiveness, this would be it.”

    Adam Hamilton, author of When Christians Get It Wrong

  • “Pastor Brian Zahnd is a fellow dreamer with a daring vision for the church today.  He is a passionate voice offering practical and biblical revelation on the art of forgiveness and the challenge of following Christ’s example in our everyday lives.”

    Brian Houston, senior pastor, Hillsong Church

  • Radical forgiveness is the most important—and most difficult—ethical imperative there is. This book couldn’t be more important. Zahnd’s voice—a very compelling voice—is 100 percent there, nothing fake, nothing contrived. People will love the book if they read it. I very much hope they do.

    Clancy Martin, professor of philosophy, University of Missouri

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by William B. | 10/8/2013

    " deep, profound, makes me think/pray, makes me return to the roots of my Christian walk; makes me re-evaluate my current understanding of the church; leaves me with lots of questions; wish I could sit down and chat with Brian Zahnd some time. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Matthew | 12/19/2012

    " It's good that he stresses how important forgiveness is to the Christian message, emphasizing that it is not an optional part of the Christian life, but he does very little in exploring HOW to forgive. I was hoping for something more personal than preachy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Raborn | 9/23/2012

    " GREAT book on unconditional love being at the heart of the Gospel. So many good examples from this book. GREAT! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Erica Bruce | 7/29/2012

    " I got this book free from Amazon out of curiosity. I am not a Christian but I did enjoy reading this book. The topic of forgiveness is explained very well with many examples. The author repeatedly mentions that forgiveness is not forgetting but breaking the cycle of revenge. "
