The City of Joy by Dominique Lapierre( Book )

6 editions published between 1985 and 1992 in English and held by 1,805 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One day in Calcutta a rickshaw puller took internationally bestselling author Dominique Lapierre to one of the poorest and most over-populated areas of this haunting city, where five million people live out their lives on the streets. The district was called Anand Nagar -- the City of Joy -- and being there would change the writer's life forever. At the heart of this extremely poor community, Lapierre found more heroism, more love, more sharing, and ultimately, more happiness than in many a city of the affluent West. Above all, he was overwhelmed to discover that this seemingly inhuman place had the magical power to produce heroes and heroines of all ages and from all walks of life. For Calcutta is the home not only of such saints as Mother Teresa, but also of countless other inspiring people, who are ordinary and completely unknown

A universal heart : the life and vision of Brother Roger of Taizé by Kathryn Spink( Book )

65 editions published between 1985 and 2015 in 7 languages and held by 502 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This updated edition -- with a new colour-plate section -- is published to celebrate the centenary of Brother Roger's birth on 12 May 1915. In August 2005, Brother Roger, the charismatic founder and leader of the Taizé community was attacked and killed whilst praying with more than 2,000 young people. His death came almost 65 years after he crossed the border from his native Switzerland into war-ravaged France and settled in the tiny village of Taizé. At a time when Europe was torn asunder, Brother Roger had asked himself why such conflict should exist between people, and particularly between Christians. He found himself called to establish a community in which reconciliation and peace would be made concrete day by day. The Taizé community has become one of the world's most important sites of Christian pilgrimage. Over 100,000 young people from around the world travel there each year for prayer, Bible study, sharing, and communal work. Through the community's ecumenical outlook, they are encouraged to live in the spirit of kindness, simplicity and reconciliation

5 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When a boatload of Dutch Calvinists settled the southernmost tip of Africa, they were convinced by their strict faith that they were among the "elect," chosen by God to rule over the world. These first colonists would, over time, take on the black tribes, fortune hunters in search of diamonds and gold, and the scarlet-clad regiments of Queen Victoria. Their bloody, ferocious, and fervent saga would culminate three centuries later in one of human history's most notorious political regimes, the establishment of apartheid, and a nation built solely on a system of irrational racism
