The Manual - Epictetus - A Short Summary and Review

The Shepherd Who Didn't Run - Maria Ruiz Scaperlanda - A Short Summary & Review


A short summary of The Shepherd Who Didn't Run:

An in-depth biography on the Blessed Stanley Rother.

My favorite Blessed Stanley Rother quote from the book:

"Pray for us that we may be a sign of the love of Christ for his people."

Questions to ponder while reading the book:

Could you be a missionary?

Would you have returned?

My review of the The Shepherd Who Didn't Run:

A very thorough work on a very special saint.

An ideal of sacrifice.

A great example of love.
