Based on the story of the two thieves who were crucified with Jesus, Anne Marie Drew explores what it means to be a sinner, and still say: "e;Jesus, remember me when you enter upon your reign."e; Jesus responds to the thief, as if to us : "e;I assure you; this day you will be with me in paradise."e;Many people who are living in sin feel unworthy of God's attention, but this is when prayer is more vital than ever. Looking at the seven deadly sins, Drew uses stories from the Bible, from classic literature, and from the saints to demonstrate that God never abandons us even when we are sinful. Drew's voice is a refreshing change of pace in a culture that often makes sinners out to be hopeless offenders.
