Title
Contextualizing Models of Humility and Forgiveness: A Reply to Gassin
Abstract

We reply to Gassin'€™s (2001) valuable description of an Eastern Orthodox perspective on interpersonal forgiveness by discussing some socio-cultural issues related to eastern and western construals of forgiveness and humility. Differences in the social function of humility and forgiveness are outlined based on differing cultural contexts. Crysdale'€™s (1999) theological model of the cross and resurrection is utilized for developing an integrative perspective on forgiveness and empowerment.
