Published by Pauline Books and Media, Saint Thomas More: Courage, Conscience and the King
Captures a glimpse into the life of a Catholic torn between his faith and duty to his country, this 33rd volume in the Encounter the Saints series familiarizes children ages 9-12 with the life story of Saint Thomas More.
Happy in his vocation as a husband, father, and lawyer, Thomas More never expected King Henry VIII to name him the Lord High Chancellor of England. Thomas was the king's most trusted and loyal servant. But when he was forced to choose between high office and what he knew was right, Thomas held on to his Catholic faith. Today, Thomas More's example of courage and conscience continues to inspire all who face the pressures of having to make a difficult - and costly - choice.
