Though the popular novel Gilead is the story of a dying man, it is not a story about death. Harken and Moses read Gilead as a celebration of life and all its gifts. As the main character of Gilead reflects back over a long life, he finds blessing in sorrow and joy in mere existence. He remembers times gone by and lessons learned. He gives thanks for the many gifts of life. This study guide travels alongside the life of Gilead's character John Ames III, pausing to reflect on the scriptures, theological concepts, and worldly experiences that define his life and the lives of those around him. As we travel with Ames, we share his quest for answers, join him in prayer, and maybe even gain a little insight into humanity's relationship with God.

"The record of a life cannot be told in lists of names and dates. Stories are the way we tell our lives," say authors Amy Lignitz Harken and Lee Hull Moses. Through the story told by John Ames III in Marilynne Robinson's novel Gilead (Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2004) Lignitz Harken and Hull Moses take us on a journey that shapes our own stories. Along the way, we meet great theologians and humble minisers, and we learn about scripture, prayer, the legacies we leave, and the blessing we receive.
