Book Description: NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Senator John McCain’s deeply moving memoir is the story of three generations of warriors and the ways that sons are shaped and enriched by their fathers. John McCain’s grandfather, a four-star admiral and one of the navy’s greatest commanders, led the strongest aircraft carrier force of the Third Fleet during World War II. McCain’s father, also a four-star admiral, served as commander of all U.S. forces in the Pacific during the Vietnam War. It was in Vietnam that John McCain III faced the most difficult challenge of his life. A naval aviator, he was shot down over Hanoi in 1967. Recognized as the son of a top commander, McCain was tortured and imprisoned for five and a half years. Despite this, he refused Vietnamese offers of an early release. What McCain learned from his grandfather and father enabled him to survive those hard years. A testament to the power of human endurance, Faith of My Fathers is the story of three men who fought for their country with courage and emerged with their honor intact. Praise for Faith of My Fathers “A thoughtful first-person take on survival, both physical and psychological . . . hard to top and impossible to read without being moved.”—USA Today “A candid, moving, and entertaining memoir . . . impressive and inspiring, the story of a man touched and molded by fire who loved and served his country in a time of great trouble, suffering, and challenge.”—Kirkus Reviews “A serious, utterly gripping account of faith, fathers, and the military.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review) “Faith of My Fathers may also appeal to those who flocked to Saving Private Ryan and kept Brokaw's The Greatest Generation near the top of the bestseller lists.”—Library Journal “Faith of My Fathers is the powerful story of a war hero. In it we learn much of what matters most. As prisoner (and later Senator) McCain instructs us: Glory is not an end in itself, but rather a reward for valor and faith. And the greatest freedom and human fulfillment comes from engaging in a noble enterprise larger than oneself. Faith of My Fathers teaches deep truths that are valid in any age but that warrant special attention in our own.”—William J. Bennett

Book Description: Гомерівський епос складається з двох епопей – «Іліади» і «Одіссеї». У першій із них йдеться про подвиги звитяжців під час Троянської війни. У другій розповідається про повернення Одіссея – одного з героїв Троянської війни – на рідний острів Ітаку та про незвичайні пригоди, які йому довелося пережити. «Одіссея» дихає величавим спокоєм, вона сповнена духовної краси і величі та є завершеним втіленням класичної епопеї. Поема наповнена цікавим побутово-звичаєвим змістом життя стародавніх еллінів, і разом з тим вона нас вводить у казково-фантастичний світ грецької міфології. Поема відзначається досить складною і довершеною композицією, що свідчить про високий художній рівень, якого досягла поезія гомерівського часу.

Book Description: Perhaps this is the first time in your life that you have handled a book in which the doctrines of the Catholic Church are expounded by one of her own sons. You have, no doubt, heard and read many things regarding our Church; but has not your information come from teachers justly liable to suspicion? You asked for bread, and they gave you a stone. You asked for fish, and they reached you a serpent. Instead of the bread of truth, they extended to you the serpent of falsehood. Hence, without intending to be unjust, is not your mind biased against us because you listened to false witnesses? This, at least, is the case with thousands of my countrymen whom I have met in the brief course of my missionary career. The Catholic Church is persistently misrepresented by the most powerful vehicles of information. Aeterna Press

Book Description: «Червона літера» – перший американський роман, що став бестселером у Європі. У досконалому за формою творі Натаніель Готорн наочно відтворив духовне обличчя своїх предків-пуритан, що жили в середині XVII століття, і викрив їхню сувору і похмуру нетерпимість, жорстокість, збочені уявлення про гріх, справедливість і кохання. Історія подружньої зради перетворилася на потужну драму, з якої героїня, зазнавши жорстоких випробувань, виходить перевтіленою, але без каяття, бо її зігріває думка про те, що вчинене нею заради справжнього почуття. «Червону літеру» цькували в США, де ортодокси вважали роман за «пропаганду похоті й незаконних стосунків», однак це тільки сприяло його популярності.

Book Description: Alan Edge is a lifelong Liverpool supporter who grew up in an environment where team loyalties were embedded in working-class culture. He was shocked to discover that his young son not only had not intention of following in his father's footsteps as a Liverpool fan, but preferred a Newcastle shirt because it was more fashionable! Faith of our Fathers is more than a personal story; it is a universal tale written with a strong sense of pathos and a rare capacity to bring to life the concerns of fans who feel the game they grew up with is being eroded by commercial exploitation.
