''Far from being hidden, each sin is another crack in the world.'' To illustrate: ''I saw that although I thought my sin could be secret, that they are no more secret than an earthquake...It will pollute the drinking water. It will make noxious gases come out of the ventilators in the elementary school. When we scream in senseless anger, blocks away a little girl we do not know spills a bowl of gravy all over a white table cloth.'' Forest's point: sin is far more than a personal issue, and without confession, the Gospel makes little sense. Drawing from Scripture, the Church Fathers, literature, and his own (as well as others') personal experience, Forest brings us quietly to the act itself. Included is a helpful chapter on finding a confessor, guidelines for self-examination and Psalms in preparation for and after confession. He writes from the Orthodox perspective but isn't exclusive, proclaiming simply: ''Without confession, love is destroyed.'' 174 pp.
