My kids loved this book. We've never had to deal with bullying, thank God, but the message of turning towards even our enemies with love, and asking the saints to pray with and for us was wonderfully illustrated. I have extra copies and I give them t ...more

This was an excellent book about having courage to do the right thing. Not mentioned is the fact that Chiune Sugihara was a convert to Orthodoxy. A welcome addition to our shelves.

G.K. Chesterton
“But perhaps God is strong enough to exult in monotony. It is possible that God says every morning, "Do it again" to the sun.; and every evening, "Do it again" to the moon. It may not be automatic monotony that makes all daisies alike; it may be that God makes every daisy separately, but has never gotten tired of making them. It may be that He has the eternal appetite of infancy; for we have sinned and grown old, and our Father is younger than we.”
G.K. Chesterton, Orthodoxy

Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
“If only it were all so simple! If only there were evil people somewhere insidiously committing evil deeds, and it were necessary only to separate them from the rest of us and destroy them. But the line dividing good and evil cuts through the heart of every human being. And who is willing to destroy a piece of his own heart?”
Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, The Gulag Archipelago 1918-1956
