Patrick Hannon, a first-place winner in the 2006 Catholic Press Association Book Awards for his debut work Running into the Arms of God, offers his second stunning collection of stories from real life: The Geography of God's Mercy. This master storyteller dives into the common experiences of life and surfaces with nuggets of spiritual gold that reveal the countless ways God shows unconditional love. Hannon uses the varied geographical topography of the Earth to illuminate his stories of compassion and forgiveness.
