Nevertheless, this was not nearly as pleasant as More's private chapel and study at Chelsea. The Tower Moat was, in effect, London's open sewer. St Thomas More shows an incredible knowledge of Sacred Scripture, the works of the ancient Greek and Roman philosophers, and of the Church Fathers and other great Catholic theologians.

Thomas More with a piece of charcoal in 1534 during his imprisonment in the infamous Tower of London. Moved by the certainty that he would be executed, More developed as his chief thesis the notion that tribulations are really blessings in disguise because they inspire men to seek God, prevent their falling into sin, or test their patience.

The first thing that I would say is that it is quite frankly astonishing that this book is not much better known throughout the Christian world considering the masterpiece that it is. I have read some spiritual works by Catholic writers (mostly saints), and I would rate this book among the top of the list. St Thomas More shows an incredible knowledge of Sacred Scripture, the works of the ancient Greek and Roman philosophers, and of the Church Fathers and other great Catholic theologians. It is precisely the way he is able to combine the thoughts from all of the great thinkers that humanity had had up to that point (obviously relying most heavily on Catholic thought) that makes St Thomas More's work so great. His stroke of genius is being able to combine the spiritual aspect of man with his human (More displays an astonising knowledge of human nature), never separating the two, for man is true body and spirit, "The spirit is indeed is willing, but the flesh weak." (Matthew 26:41) Some great spiritual books occasionally may seem somewhat abstract, in the sense that it may seem hard to translate the spiritual counsel to daily life, not so with this book. Another fascinating aspect of this book is the ability that More has in analysing ALL possible angles of a subject; he leaves no question untouched, and he uses the dialogue between Anthony and Vincent principally for this purpose, so that by answering to Vincent's objections or questions on a particular topic there can be no doubt on the reader's mind on the significance, practicality and true meaning of what More is trying to convey to the reader. St Thomas More displays an absolutely brutal logic in his writing - I would really like to see someone attempting to counter his arguments in a convincing manner! An lastly, the book occasionally will make the reader smile and even laugh, as good St Thomas More shows his wit and humour to wonderful effect, helping the reader to view all passing things in this world less seriously and lift up our hearts to the only thing that at the end of the day matters, and that is to be with God for all eternity after we have concluded our voyage in this vale of tears.

A great and inspiring treatise by one of the truly great men in history as he awaited execution in the Tower of London for opposing the illicit remarriage of the tyrant, Henry Tudor, King of England. This meditation on sharing the Passion of Christ (Col. 1:24), who was also executed unjustly by The Powers, can help us put our own far smaller trials and tribulations into better and consoling perspective. Get it.

Suffering a lot of hardship, tribulations, well St. Thomas Moore gives us great wisdom and comfort to acknowledge our sinfulness & need for God's healing grace through our hardest moments & that prayer is the only remedy along with the grace that only comes from Jesus himself, but this book allows you to see where maybe you have to finely examine your conscious behavior to act differently & pray differently.

I returned this book as the type was too small to read comfortably. I hope it was received.

It is fascinating to read a book written by a Saint. There is so much to learn. It is nice that it was translated into modern English, because I personally find reading old English difficult. A good book if you are suffering. If you are upset about why you are suffering, you won't be after reading this book.

I bought this because I love historical fiction and non-fiction. I find it to be somewhat inspirational. I would recommend this.
My Catholic book group has found this book to be well worth the effort. The translation is very readable and the content edifying.
