After receiving a smart phone for Christmas, I decided to join the Kindle ranks and downloaded the Android Kindle app. Browsing around for free stuff to start with, I check what was available from Thomas More, a favorite author and saint.

Figuring the Dialogue would be similar, I was excited to start reading it in Lent after re-reading his other work.

A must read for every Catholic. I don’t know why this book is not recommend reading for everyone when they come of age! I would place this book in the top 20 that every person should read. The wise council given by St. Thomas More would give comfort to many who are suffering through pain, temptation, and persecution. If one wants to know how we should give and receive comfort in times of tribulation, one need look no further than this book.
