This book is a veritable liberal education in itself, bringing together in a carefully balanced and readable manner, distinguished personalities from diverse enterprises and periods of history. It literally sparkles with celebrities recruited from science and the arts, philosophy and theology, medicine and religion, stage and screen, sports and entertainment. But the book does not ignore the relatively unknown who provide several human interest stories that are both moving and unforgettable.
"With the renewed interest today in the virtues, De Marco reminds us that the virtues primarily lead us to God. This important book shows the virtues to be both more demanding and more graceful than the present discussion recognizes. Read De Marco and be reminded that the virtues have been at the heart of moral and spiritual reflection for over 2,000 years."
- Deal Hudson, Editor, Crisis Magazine
"A really engaging journey through the lives of men and women of virtue. Great for teaching and preaching."
- Benedict Groeschel, CFR, Author, Arise From Darkness
