In February 2009 we ran a blog item (see under "General" at upper right) about Father Greg Boyle, S.J. and his Homeboy Industries, which helps ex-convicts in East Los Angeles rehabilitate their lives and find jobs.
Now, Jesuit Father Greg has a new book out, Tattoos on the Heart: The Power of Boundless Compassion (Free Press, 2010). There’s also a book about Father Greg, G-Dog and the Homeboys: Father Greg Boyle and the Gangs of East Los Angeles by Celeste Fremon (University of New Mexico Press, 2008).
