If you had the privilege of catching PBS’ Independent Lens special, “Half the Sky,” based on the book by the same name authored by Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn, you will want to know that the Kindle edition of Carolyn Custis James’ amazing book, Half the Church, is on sale this week for $1.99!

Just thought I'd let you know!
