View all copies of this ISBN edition:

One of history's most admired figures, Thomas More stands as a model of courage, integrity, fortitude, and other virtues. As a highly successful lawyer, diplomat, and father of a large family, he sacrificed everything that the world holds dear for what his conscience dictated was a principle that could not be sacrificed.

The Catholic Church recognized his heroic virtue and holiness by making him a saint along with Bishop John Fisher on the 400th anniversary of their martyrdoms in 1935. This new biography details the hidden spiritual life of More. What motivated his spiritual struggle? How did his writings open a window into his inner life?
