Father Boyle, a beloved Jesuit priest, is the founder of Homeboy Industries, the largest gang intervention, rehabilitation and re-entry program in the world. He is also an international bestselling author of several books.

Father Boyle will be sharing about the power of extravagant tenderness, the premise of his new book, and the work of Homeboy Industries. ALL PROCEEDS GO TO HOMEBOY INDUSTRIES!

About the book: In a community struggling to overcome systemic poverty and violence, The Whole Language shows how those at Homeboy Industries fight despair and remain generous, hopeful and tender. Boyle’s moving stories challenge our ideas about God and people, providing a window into a world filled with fellowship, compassion and fewer barriers. Bursting with encouragement, humor and hope, The Whole Language invites us to treat others – and ourselves – with acceptance and tenderness.
