The Book of Forgiving (by Desmond Tutu, Mpho Tutu) is a joint work of the South African Archbishop and Nobel Peace Prize winner Desmond Tutu and his daughter, the Reverend Mpho Andree Tutu.

Archbishop Tutu has been the chairman of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission for many years. He is aware that after the catharsis that South Africa has gone through, positive strength and power is in forgiveness. He is also aware of how much individual and social guilt can destroy every individual on the planet.
