Father Ken Deasy will be signing copies of Get Off the Cross - Someone Else Needs the Wood on Sunday August 30th from 1:00 - 3:00 p.m.
Have you ever wondered what religion really offers us in our busy, 24/7, twenty-first century world? Have you looked at our churches and wished that they would be magically brought up-to-date to deal with the lives and problems that we now face? And do you ever wonder what the church has to say about an Internet-driven world that leaves little time for reflection?
Take this exciting, inspiring, and convention-smashing journey with Father Ken of Los Angeles' St. Agatha's Parish, and find out what God, faith and religion really mean to us now in a new, high-tech century. Written in the no-nonsense, urban style of The Cross and the Switchblade, this tale still heaps up the comfort-food warmth of Chicken Soup for the Soul as it inspires each of us and helps us face our own struggles.
Watch Father Ken become Father Confessor to a diverse group from Hollywood notables and power figures to the toughest gangbanger on the street-and at the same time readers will discover facets of their OWN inner faith, love and endurance. Father Ken confronts every conflict with hilarity and frankness as he puts to use the priceless wisdom dished out by a friend who admonished him to: "Get off the Cross - Someone else needs the wood!"
