Elizabeth Head Black author of “Hand in Hand: Walking with the Psalms Through Loneliness” will visit the Cathedral Bookstore on Sunday, March 15, to sign books from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
Black is the wife of the Rev. Milton Black, an Episcopal priest with whom she shares a life dedicated to ministry. Her passion is to communicate God’s undeterred love and presence in our lives and to draw others into a vibrant relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ.
For the last 15 years, she has written and taught her own bible studies in which she shares her enthusiasm for God’s word with women of all ages. In addition to her commitment to biblical literacy, Black has written a column, “Faith Reflections,” for her local newspaper in Corpus Christi and been a contributing writer for church publications, where she contemplates the extraordinary and sacred presence of God in the commonplace events of everyday lives.
The Dean’s Book Club discusses a different book at each meeting, including novels, nonfiction, and books on spirituality and faith. Books are selected by the group and are available for purchase from the Cathedral Bookstore. All are welcome. The club meets in the McGehee Conference Room from 6:30–8 p.m. on the following dates:

“God’s Secretaries” by Adam Nicolson
The path to the completion of the influential King James Bible wasn’t smooth. Nicolson deftly chronicles the personalities involved and narrates the political and religious struggles of the early 17th century.
