I love this book! It is wise and practical, the stories are amazing, and I have seen it change so many lives. Allen Hunt is one of the best kept secrets in the Catholic world today. He is a fabulous writer, a world-class leader and scholar, and an incredible speaker. Everybody Needs to Forgive Somebody is an absolute must-read!
