This book is a great gift for any occasion
Urban Meditations is outcast political theology by two of Boston’s leading advocates, Kip Tiernan and Fran Froehlich. It is a forty-year reflection on life for some in Boston and elsewhere. Money from the sale of the book – $18.00 (includes postage and handling) – will continue to help us run this economic ministry.
