JCBC Book Club
You are invited to the JCBC Book Club on Thursday, May 16th at 2:00pm. We will be discussing “Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption” by Bryan Stevenson this month in Conference Room # 3 – C252.
A powerful true story about the potential for mercy to redeem us, and a clarion call to fix our broken system of justice—from one of the most brilliant and influential lawyers of our time
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.
The JCBC Book Club meets each month to discuss a book and share coffee and dessert together. We also assist in donating books to our church library and to our homebound members. We would love for you to join us at any of our monthly gatherings.
