Just Mercy – Book Studies

Just Mercy – Book Studies
justmercyA book study of Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption by Bryan Stevenson will be offered this fall with multiple meeting options in Austin. This book is a powerful true story about the potential for mercy to redeem us, and a clarion call to fix our broken system of justice.

“Just Mercy” was named by TIME magazine as one of the “10 Best Books of Nonfiction” for 2014, a Notable Book of 2014 by the New York Times, and it won the 2015 Andrew Carnegie Medal for Excellence in Nonfiction, among many other awards. It is on this year’s reading list for United Methodist Women. Just Mercy is available on Amazon for participants to purchase. If you want a preview, check out Bryan Stevenson’s TED Talk here.
