Love conquers all. Or does it? Take the case of young Pinkie Brown, teenage mobster and lead character in Graham Greene's searing novel "Brighton Rock." He marries Rose, a shy waitress, in order to prevent her from testifying against him. Yet, despite his cruelty, Rose loves Pinkie. Can she save a man who considers himself unsavable? Can love redeem?

Lori and Alice discuss love's power, while also touching on personal responsibility, Jesus' own redemptive love for us, and God's miraculous mercy. Don't miss this show!
