Handling of Christian Values of Forgiveness and Love in Toni Morrisonâ€™s Beloved
God created each and every human being in relational harmony with Himself and each other. Sin destroys affection, violates relationships, causing separation, which leads to estrangement. Barriers arise and consequently oneness is lost. As per Gospel, first receive forgiveness from God through Christ and then forgive others. Forgiveness is somehow related to love. Forgiveness fosters oneâ€™s growth; non-forgiveness shuts oneâ€™s down. Love requires a certain emotional and spiritual maturity, in order to forgive fully. Toni Morrisonâ€™s Beloved which is full of allusions to the Bible deals with it poignantly.
