A guiding light

Pemberton_lighthouseBoston College alumnus Steve Pemberton is the author of The Lighthouse Effect: How Ordinary People Can Have an Extraordinary Impact in the World (Zondervan, 2021). He writes about what he calls “human lighthouses”—the mentors, teachers, friends, and colleagues who selflessly guide us along life’s voyage. Book trailer. One of the quietly heroic people Pemberton highlights in his book is fellow Boston College Welles Crowther, who saved the lives of strangers on 9/11. Pemberton is also the author of a memoir, A Chance in the World, which chronicles his journey from a childhood spent in cruel foster homes to an adulthood of happiness and success. Learn more about Pemberton and The Lighthouse Effect in a Q&A from Boston College Magazine.
