In this revelatory, intimate memoir from the author of Dead Man Walking, Sister Helen Prejean, the nation’s foremost leader in efforts to abolish the death penalty, shares the story of her growth as a spiritual leader, speaks out about the challenges of the Catholic Church, and shows that joy and religion are not mutually exclusive.
River of Fire is a book for anyone interested in journeys of faith and spirituality, doubt and belief, and “catching on fire” to purpose and passion. It is a book written in accessible, luminous prose about how to live a spiritual life that is wide awake to the sufferings and creative opportunities of our world.
This event is co-sponsored by the Friends School of Atlanta.
