Author of "Spider in a Tree."
Stinson's book is about Jonathan Edwards' famous sermon "Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God" where he compared a person dangling a spider over a hearth fire to God holding a sinner over the fires of Hell. Ordinary grace, human failings and extraordinary convictions combine in unexpected ways to animate this New England tale. In addition, she will read from the book at Whistlestop Bookshop at 5 p.m.
