Book Discussion on April 22nd- Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption

Faith Development hosts this month’s Book Discussion on Sunday, April 22nd at 10:00am

Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption by Bryan Stevenson

Join us for a discussion, based on this powerful true story from one of the most brilliant and influential lawyers of our time, about the potential for mercy to redeem us, and a clarion call to fix our broken system of justice.

The author, Bryan Stevenson, was a young lawyer when he founded the Equal Justice Initiative, a legal practice dedicated to defending those most desperate and in need: the poor, the wrongly condemned, and women and children trapped in the farthest reaches of our criminal justice system. One of his first cases was that of Walter McMillian, a young man who was sentenced to die for a notorious murder he insisted he didn’t commit. The case drew Bryan into a tangle of conspiracy, political machination, and legal brinksmanship—and transformed his understanding of mercy and justice forever.

Just Mercy is at once an unforgettable account of an idealistic, gifted young lawyer’s coming of age, a moving window into the lives of those he has defended, and an inspiring argument for compassion in the pursuit of true justice.

Whether you have read the book or not, we invite you to come participate in this timely and important discussion.
