The 2004 Pulitzer Prize winning novel
A New York Times Top-Ten Book of 2004
Winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award for Fiction
Recommended by Thad's Lead Minister, The Rev. Jon Dephouse, Marilynne Robinson's intimate tale of three generations, from the Civil War to the 20th century: a story about fathers and sons and the spiritual battles that still rage at America's heart. In the words of Kirkus, it is a novel "as big as a nation, as quiet as thought, and moving as prayer. Matchless and towering." Gilead tells the story of America and will break your heart. Find it HERE.
"Gilead is told through a letter by John Ames, a terminally ill pastor in the crumbling prairie town of Gilead, who is writing a letter to his seven-year-old son. The letter is full of advice and religion, but is also confessional, with revelatory truths about Ames’s family history – all delivered among small moments of self-interruption as he observes his son play, talk, eat in real time. Treasured moments to a father who knows he will not see his son reach adulthood." - In "Books to Give you Hope" from The Guardian
