KIRKUS REVIEW

The story of the life and convictions of Suarez who lived in the days of the Spanish Armada is as modern as today. Suarez lived in a period of great social change, and as a leader in the Society of Jesus helped to shape the doctrines and policies of Catholic Spain. Believing implicitly in the equality of men and the democracy of government, he was anathema to the rulers and plenipotentiaries of his time. Daring but firm in his beliefs, he left his mark on the cultural, educational and theological thought of his times and left a rich heritage to the modern world. Interesting and easily presented.
