This book explores the conscience and motivation of one of the most admired persons in history: St. Thomas More. Most people know that Thomas More wrote a book called Utopia about a perfect society and got his head chopped off by King Henry VIII. But there was much more to the man. More not only occupied England’s most powerful position under the king as Lord Chancellor, but was also a devoted family man, a Renaissance figure of renown throughout Europe, and the author of works of apologetics as well as poetry, fiction and plays. Even while awaiting execution in the Tower of London, his multi-volume "Tower writings" poured out, evidence of his deep faith and life of prayer. In Gulliver’s Travels, Protestant author Jonathan Swift named More among the six greatest defenders of liberty of all time, “to which all the ages of the world cannot add a seventh.” Erasmus praised him as one “born, created for friendship.” After his death, a popular tune sang the praises of his “gentle heart”: When More some time had Chancellor been, No more suits did remain; The like will never more be seen Till More be there again. Peter Berglar, who has written ten biographies including one of St. Peter, and one of the earliest studies of Opus Dei and its founder, St. Josemaría Escrivá, deals in this new translation of the original German with the ultimate question: for what is life not worth living? When must it be purchased at a price that could devalue and perhaps destroy it? “It has been repeated in every generation. There will never be a lack of idols and dictators who demand this sacrifice.”

Mr. Datts poems reflect wide international interests and attitudes and have enough interest for a wide range of readers. His subjects include the nuclear holocaust to domestic issues between man and wife. He expressed liberal sympathies taking up the cause of victimized people whether they are aboriginal Canadians, South African Blacks or Rodney King. By combining poignant moments of boyhood experiences, realistic details concerning issues, his poetry employs richly evocative language and universal themes; social and cultural issues and its impact upon society and world politics. Naraine offers a thought provoking and intriguing examination of one mans life and his personal growth process.

This is the story of a young Jewish boy miraculously surviving in a war-torn Ukraine during the World War Two catastrophe. It is the tale of struggle for survival of Semyon Royzman. The little boy is forced to confront situations which no person, let alone child, should have to face, detailing the events of the Nazi occupation as well as the persecution of his family and the entire Jewish populace. This is a firsthand account of what really happened, and it shows the cruelty and barbarity of which the dark side of the human soul is truly capable. From the very first signs of occupation, we follow the little boy in his struggle for survival and dignity. We follow his incarceration in a concentration/extermination camp, escape to cave-type surviving conditions, and struggle for ultimate survival and victory.
