Looking at the seven deadly sins, Drew uses stories from the Bible, from classic literature, and from the saints to demonstrate that God never abandons sinners.
Praying Thieves explores what it means to be a sinner and still be in prayerful conversation with God. Based on the story of the two thieves who were crucified with Jesus, Anne Marie Drew looks at the prayerful cry: ?Jesus, remember me when you enter upon your reign.? Jesus responds to the thief, as he continues to respond to us today: ?I assure you; this day you will be with me in paradise.? Many people who are living in sin feel unworthy of God's attention, but for them, prayer is more vital than ever. Looking at the seven deadly sins, Drew uses stories from the Bible, from classic literature and from the saints to demonstrate that God never abandons us even when we are sinful. Drew's voice is a refreshing change of pace in a culture that often presents sinners as hopeless offenders.
