Our authors have contributed an impressive range of chapters from their fields of specialty. In this epilogue, we briefly sum up the road so far—the key themes and understanding we have gained throughout. We acknowledge that readers would have found countless other themes that are relevant to their particular research or clinical interests—which is our joy in sharing an edited book with readers. Next, based on our diverse experiences, we endeavour to anticipate the road ahead. Where are the opportunities to develop further knowledge about self-forgiveness? What lingering questions and interesting avenues have arisen in the process of the production of this book? We review the key themes of the book that we identified in the prologue with the goal of directing the field forward, from the knowns to the unknowns. We hope to stimulate growth and development and perhaps supplement the insights that readers gained as they read the scholarly reviews of this volume. Finally, we end by offering our thoughts on the key tools available to us as we look to the road ahead.
