They could not have known that on the other side of the mirrors, something watched: a corrupt, vor

WHO BETTER TO FACE THE GREATEST EVIL OF THE 20TH CENTURY THAN A HUMBLE MAN OF FAITH?

Metaxas presents the fullest accounting of Bonhoeffer’s heart-wrenching decision to leave the safe haven of America to return to Hitler’s Germany, and sheds new light on Bonhoeffer’s involvement in the famous Valkyrie plot and in “Operation 7,” the effort to smuggle Jews into neu

Auteur : Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Genre : Classics
Dostoevsky’s classic pitting one man against society

Widely considered to be the first existential novella, Notes from Underground presents the diary of a bitter, misanthropic man.

Formerly a civil servant, this “sick” and “wicked” man suffers from incurable ennui and forsakes all interaction.
