Therese of Lisieux (1873-1897), also known as St. Therese of the Child Jesus and the Holy Face, is popularly named the Little Flower. A Carmelite nun, doctor of the church, and patron of a score of causes, she was famously acclaimed by Pope Pius X as the greatest saint of modern times. Th?r?se is not only one of the most beloved saints of the Catholic Church but perhaps the most revered woman of the modern age. Pope John Paul II described her as a living icon of God. Her autobiography Story of a Soul has been translated into sixty languages. Having long transcended national and linguistic boundaries, she has crossed even religious ones. As daughter of Allah, she is venerated widely in Islamic cultures. Therese has been the subject of innumerable biographies and treatises, ranging from hagiographies to attacks on her intelligence and mental health. Thomas R. Nevin has gained access to many untapped archival materials and previously unpublished photographs. As a consequence he is able to offer a much fuller and more accurate portrait of the saints life and thought than his predecessors. He explores the dynamics of her family life and the early development of her spirituality. He draws extensively on the correspondence of her mother and documents her influence on Th?r?ses autobiography and spirituality. He charts the development of Therese's career as a writer. He gives close attention to her poetry and plays usually dismissed as undistinguished and argues that they have great value as texts by which she addressed and informed her Carmelite community. He delves into the French medical literature of the time, in an effort to understand how the tuberculosis of which she died at the age of 24 was treated and lamentably mistreated. Finally, he offers a new understanding of Th?r?se as a theologian for whom love, rather than doctrines and creeds, was the paramount value. Adding substantially to our knowledge and appreciation of this immensely popular and attractive figure, this book should appeal to many general readers as well as to scholars and students of modern Catholic history.

How do you become a "gentle warrior" when you're so damn angry you want to kill something?! Everywhere you turn there seems to be a wall you cannot penetrate. You are in a cage emotionally and all apparent answers you have sought have been exhausted; so you turn it inward because there seems to be no other way out. Not realizing that there is. There is a way out. It is our free will through the choices we mke. It is your birthday present. Never give your powere away to anyone. I propose our souls continue forever. This is the story of the gentle way how it really works. The Gentle Warrior is about dealing with real-life problems and the steps you can take to remedy them and how you can apply them to life's daily situations. It shows you how to change old reactive habits by replacing them with new ones that really work. The book is divided into 14 segments with poems throughout relating to the various subjects that deal with anger/depression, joy/sorrow and many others. It covers the basis of my book, which is unconditional love. This is a very "real-life" treatment of personal issues that we all face. My book deals with spiritual growth and free will choice concepts. The poems often say things in a different way and touch upon thoughts expressed by the author and possible the reader. It helps the person to realize that there are many others struggling with the same challenges and situations. It also deals with repetition and how to stop the same old habits. It gives hope and a way to make real changes in your life. A new way to get out of the same old groove using underlying concepts of truth and where unconditional love takes you. This is a book about helping others by helping ourselves. It shows us how to become what I believe to be our true nature. Then, when we help ourselves we automatically help others. A very "contagious love." The book ends on a note of heart hope and soul truth and my poem entitled "Smile". If I can make you smile today With jewels that I have brought While other pass the time away Caring with no thought A gift I have for you No greater one can there be Than to look upon your face and see What you have really given me

I have chosen the title, Gentle Warrior, for my life story. Mine is the story of how God turned a bashful, timid boy into a bold, earnest warrior preacher. As it would be impossible to tell the Apostle Paul's life story by limiting it to his travels and to geographical details and ignoring the spiritual warfare he faced throughout his life: so it would be impossible for me to tell my story apart from dealing with the spiritual warfare I faced throughout my life as a Gospel preacher.

Opening his eyes, gazing upon the dark-haired beauty bending over him, he was certain that she was the goddess, Freyja and that he has died and gone to Valhalla. Determined to possess the bronze-skinned maiden who saved his life, Rorik vowed to fight the whole tribe if he must, spirit the Indian girl away from these foreign shores and sail away with her to the icy splendor of his Viking homeland. Before he could fulfill his plans, however, Rorik must first find his crew, regain his ship and wage the battle of his life.
