Works by St. Thomas More
- Dialogue of Comfort Against Tribulation [from Project Gutenberg]
Description: Awaiting execution for treason against King Henry VIII after refusing to recognize the king as the
Supreme Church Head of England, Thomas More wrote one of his greatest English works, A Dialogue of Comfort, to express his own thoughts on hope in the face of tribulation. In this fictional dialogue set in sixteenth century Hungary between a young Anthony and his dying uncle, Vincent, Anthony is terrified of an impending Turkish invasion and expresses his fears of dying a martyr to his uncle. Vincent responds with a message of comfort in God during difficulties and sufferings. A work that aptly conveys More's belief that God is and must be our only comfort, this book is a lasting legacy of hope in the faithfulness of God - both for More, and for the reader today.
