How can one forgive what cannot be forgotten? How are repentance, justice, mercy, and God's will related to forgiveness? This is the dilemma of the book of Jonah. Humans hesitate and falter when trying to accept or imitate a model of divine forgiveness. Contemporary society abounds with examples of people who, like Jonah, struggle to forgive others. Holocaust survivors, victims of apartheid, and those injured by domestic abuse are but a few examples. The book culminates in a dialogue, informed by the best of modern biblical scholarship, between Jonah and modern dilemmas of forgiveness.
