Craig Rennebohm Reads This Sunday

While Souls in the Hands of a Tender God, the remarkable new book out on Beacon Press by Seattle mental health chaplain Craig Rennebohm, won't be available in stores until May 15, you can get your copy now.
The book "tells stories of the search for home and healing on the streets, drawn from Craig's ministry over the years, and explores an understanding of God active in our lives in support of persons, neighborhood, and the creation of a compassionate human community. Souls gives expression to the faith and values at the heart of our life together."
Craig will do a reading and signing this Sunday, April 13, at 2 pm at Prospect Church, 1919 E. Prospect St., 98112. I wouldn't miss it. Here's the best part. Reading circles are being organized.
The Chaplaincy has made a bulk purchase of Craig's new book for use by reading circles in local congregations and organizations. Hard-cover copies are available at a cost of $9.60 each. You may order them either by emailing or calling Lori at (206) 322-6030. The Chaplaincy has prepared a conversation guide for small groups to use in discussing the book and its themes of hope, help, and healing neighborhood. If you'd like assistance or advice in setting up a reading circle, e-mail David Paul.

Thanks, Tim, for your support of Craig's work and Souls in the Hands of a Tender God. Here's an update: Beacon Press has advanced the publication date to May 1, and online booksellers are already showing the book as available. So the waiting is over. We are still offering advance copies for reading groups at the discounted price, for a limited time, and we encourage people to participate in this consciousness-raising, action-oriented project.

This sounds really really good. I emailed the guy about possible reading groups about it.
