The Limits of Forgiveness: Maria Mayo

What does the Bible actually say about forgiveness? The answer may surprise you. New Testament scholar and Huffington Post writer Maria Mayo challenges traditional Christian assumptions about forgiveness in her research. While not dismissing the idea of forgiveness or diminishing its importance, she takes issue with the current practice of forgiveness as an individual, psychological act.

In 2008, Maria Mayo recorded a short piece for NPR's This I Believe.  You can listen to the segment here.
