Scott Cluthe interviews Tom Hallman, Jr. Thursday on his  book, A Stranger's Gift.

Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Tom Hallman will join us to present his new book, A Stranger’s Gift: True Stories of Faith in Unexpected Places. These beautifully crafted stories gently guide readers into the hallways of faith. Mr. Hallman’s unexpected journey toward faith began with a routine assignment to write a feature piece for The Oregonian.

He begrudgingly found himself in an African American church on a Sunday morning – out of place, uncomfortable, and ready to leave. But he accidentally found something he wasn’t looking for: faith and prayer in action. Compelled by this experience, he began to seek out men and women across the country who “believed”, and these people became the subjects of the thirteen stories in the book.

As these stories progress, two narratives unfold: Hallman’s story and exploration of faith in his own life, and the stories of the people he met.  Mr. Hallman’s pieces have appeared in Esquire, Men’s Health, Reader’s Digest, and many other magazines.
