Barking to the Choir Book
Following his first book, "Tattoos on the Heart: The Power of Boundless Compassion," Father Gregory Boyle returns to tell readers about the power of unconditional love, faith, and radical kinship that he has discovered as the founder of Homeboy Industries. Now in operation for more than 30 years, Homeboy Industries has grown to become the largest gang-intervention, rehabilitation, and reentry program in the world. In this empowering book, learn about the experiences of members and how they have built a better life for themselves and others.
Father Greg is a New York Times best-selling author and has been awarded with numerous recognitions including the California Peace Prize. Most recently in response to the COVID-19 global pandemic, he is serving as a committee member of the Economic and Job Recovery Task Force in his home state of California.
We are proud to work with and support Homeboy Industries, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that empowers formerly incarcerated and gang-involved individuals to redirect their lives in Downtown Los Angeles and become contributing members of our community.
