Beautiful Souls

I've been listening to a video talk with Eyal Press about his book, Beautiful Souls: The Courage and Conscience of Ordinary People in Extraordinary Times. It's about people who take stands based on conscience and do the right thing even when it means breaking ranks with their families, their employers, their countries (like Fr. Roy Bourgeois and Edward Snowden).

Here's the talk ...

Eyal Press also wrote an earlier book, Absolute Convictions: My Father, a City, and the Conflict That Divided America. There was a book review and except from the book at NPR here. And there was also a very interesting interview with him at NPR on Fresh Air - The Abortion Debate Through a Son's Eyes.
