Favourite Heroes and Holy People by Deborah Cassidi
Book DescriptionIn her previous two books for Continuum, Lady Cassidi showed that she was well tuned to a large market. In this inspiring new book, the author has approached an extraordinary range of people - men, women and children - and asked them to select just one person who is either a hero or heroine of theirs or an inspiring holy person. Each contribution consists of a quotation from the hero or holy person, a personal passage about what the person means to the author of the contribution and a potted biography. The book is full of unexpected treasures which will come as a source of inspiration and encouragement to people today, when we are sorely in need of both. Rowan Williams chooses St Augustine, General Sir Mike Jackson The Duke of Wellington. Other contributors include The Chief Rabbi, Sir Roy Calne, Prince Charles and Vanessa Redgrave.
