We could tell you about the bodies. We could tell you their names, where they were found, the state they were in. We could tell you about the suspects too, the evidence, the investigators; join a few dots, even throw you a motive. But what would be the point? You're going to make your own assumptions anyway. After all, you know these people, don't you? You went to school with them. We all did. Granted, that was twenty years ago, but how much does anybody really change? Exactly. So if you really knew them then, you'll already have all the answers. If you really knew them then... Put on your uniform and line up in an orderly fashion for the funniest and most accurate trip back to the classroom you are likely to read, as well as a murder mystery like nothing that has gone before it. Forget the forensics: only once you've been through school with this painfully believable cast of characters will you be equipped to work out what really happened decades later. Even then, you'll probably guess wrong and be made to stand in the corner.

Bold heroes of the Faith For every half-dozen heroes antiquity could muster, Christendom produced thousands; and often from the strangest holes and corners. Instead of drying up the spirit of adventure, the Fire of Pentecost kindled it anew and made it burn with an unquenchable flame. The Master’s parting instructions to His followers resulted in a host of enterprises quite as daring as any to be found in Homer. Some of these are brought vividly to life in these stories about courageous Christians from the earliest days of Christianity to modern times. Although written primarily for youthful readers, they are sure to interest all those to whom the achievements of their fellow Christians are a matter of pride and encouragement. Here you’ll read about, among others: The pagan actor whose mockery of the Faith led him to convert and even die a Christian martyr The blind boy who became an adviser to great saints The brave bishop who successfully defended the true Faith — against his fellow bishops and even the Emperor! The monk who was martyred in the Coliseum trying to stop the bloodshed of the gladiators there The priest who suffered cruel deprivations to convert a savage tribe — with a dictionary! The Irish monk who crossed the Sea of Darkness to discover America The celebrated Spanish novelist who helped save Christendom from the Turks at the Battle of Lepanto The unarmed bishop who, with words alone, drove Attila the Hun from the gates of Rome The stirring adventures of these brave Christian souls remind us that God has in hand for each of us a unique mission, worthy of all our imagination and of all our daring.
