With only their bare hands and the crudest of homemade tools, they sank shafts, built underground railroads, forged passports, drew maps, faked weapons, and tailored german uniforms and civilian clothes. They developed a fantastic security system to protect themselves from the German "ferrets" who prowled the compounds with nerve-racking tenacity and suspicion. It was a split-second operation as delicate and as deadly as a time bomb

The pilgrim's progress by John Bunyan( Recording )

21 editions published between 1997 and 2010 in English and held by 345 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Next to "The Bible", "The pilgrim's progress" has probably been more widely read than any other book in the English language-and rightfully so. It is considered by most critics as the greatest allegory in any language. And to think that it was written by a jailed tinker who received very little formal education. This is the enthralling account of a Christian's epic journey. With a burden on his back, Christian reads a book that tells him that the city in which he and his family dwell will be set ablaze. Christian flees from the City of Destruction and journeys through the Slough of Despond, the Interpreter's House, the House Beautiful, the Valley of Humiliation, the Valley of the Shadow of Death, Vanity Fair, Doubting Castle, and the Delectable Mountains. He finally reaches the Celestial City

The abolition of man : and the great divorce by C. S Lewis( )

14 editions published between 1999 and 2009 in English and held by 250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In The abolition of man, C.S. Lewis asks if we have been taught to discount the veracity and deeper meaning of our emotional resonance with the world around us. He examines the curriculum of the English prep school and begins to wonder if this subliminal teaching has indeed produced a generation who discount such a nature. "St. Augustine," he explains, "defines virtue as ordo amoris, the ordinate condition of the affections in which every object is accorded that kind of degree of love which is appropriate to it. Aristotle says that the aim of education is to make the pupil like and dislike what he ought. When the age for reflective thought comes, the pupil who has been thus trained in 'ordinate affections' or 'just sentiments' will easily find the first principle in Ethics; but to the corrupt man they will never be visible at all and he can make no progress in that science." Yet the modern educational system around him, it seems, was bent on producing men without chests and
