Under the Influence – in N’awlins!

My new book, Under the Influence of Jesus: The Transforming Experience of Encountering Christ, made its debut in the great city of New Orleans this past weekend at the Hofinger Catechetical Conference.

We were a bit nervous at first because of a delay in shipping but, thanks be to God, the books arrived and the rush was on to buy them and so many people were kind enough to ask me to sign their copy! As always, New Orleans is such a wonderful experience and the people there were so welcoming. Of course, the food and music were wonderful a well! Thanks to all for a great experience. Sorry your Saints lost! Here are a few pics of the goings-on.

Here I am with Chicago’s very own Andrew Lyke, Director of the Office for Black Catholics.
