Hearts Turn by Michael Sugich
“This book is a declaration of mercy and certainty. Formed of a collection of stories I’ve experienced, read or heard, about how malleable the human heart can be and how wrongdoing, remorse, need, and yearning intersect with Divine Compassion, Forgiveness and Guidance.
It is also about the sudden transitions from confusion to clarity, from sin to virtue, from sleep to wakefulness, from ignorance to knowledge, from foolishness to wisdom.
And finally, it is about the path of our lives, which leads us gradually, and for those who God favors, inexorably to salvation.”
Hearts Turn’ is a singular and gripping exploration of the act of ‘tawba’, a Qur’anic term commonly translated as repentance. In English, repentance is a forbidding word that suggests a puritanical finality. But in Arabic the term ‘tawba’ is dynamic, meaning to ‘turn’ or ‘return’.
