In The Way of Forgiveness, the distinguished writer and translator Stephen Mitchell provides a stirring account of the power and wisdom of forgiveness.

Based on the biblical story of Joseph and his brothers-a beautiful, brilliant, arrogant young man is sold into slavery but eventually rises to become viceroy of Egypt-The Way of Forgiveness is a riveting expansion, lush with vivid characters and a captivating sense of place. What's new here is the lyrical, witty, vivid prose, informed by a wisdom that brings fresh insight to this foundational legend of betrayal and all-embracing forgiveness.

Mitchell's retelling interweaves the narrative with brief meditations that, with their Zen surprises, expand and illuminate the main themes. The engrossing tale that he has created will capture the hearts and minds of modern readers and show them that this ancient story can still challenge, delight, and astonish.

The Way of Forgiveness is the paperback edition of Joseph and the Way of Forgiveness.
