Once a defining feature of Christian life, the practice of Confession was abandoned by many people in the last few decades of the twentieth century, but now is coming back to life with the recognition that, without an acknowledgment of sin and the longing for forgiveness and reconciliation, the Gospel makes little sense. In Confession Jim Forest offers a moving and helpful reappraisal of this neglected sacrament, drawing on scripture, the lives of the saints, and a wealth of person stories. Book jacket.
