Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Based on the critical edition of More's prison correspondence, this volume begins with letters to Cromwell and Henry VIII in February 1534, and ends with his last words to his daughter, Margaret Roper, on the eve of his execution. More writes on a host of topics, including prayer and penance, the right to use riches and power, the joys of heaven, depression and suicide, and the moral compromises of his fellow prisoners. De Silva (theology, Thomas More College of Liberal Arts) provides the introduction and commentary.
