AMC Jail Bird

On Saturday, the Good Faith Book Club chose this book as our next read and discussion on Saturday May 27th. The promotional blurb explains why...
"Written with passion and understanding, Jail Bird explores how it is possible to reach out to those vilified in the press and by society at large, and to work for the good of all, recognising the humanity in those who commit crimes. Sharon Grenham-Thompson is an Anglican minister and former prison chaplain at Bedford Jail in the UK, where she was responsible for running a large multi-faith team. Jail Bird explores her motivation to help those who are the least in society.
"Totally gripping and extremely personal, this fluid biography comes gushing down the mountain like a raging floodwater. I literally couldn't put it down. In fact I read the whole thing in one session." Chris Evans — BBC Radio 2 Presenter"
