Reviews - What do customers think about Great Souls: Six Who Changed a Century?

Feed Your Brain and Soul  Mar 14, 2009
This is such a fantastic book. If you are an adult, you will recognize most of the names and surely all of the events that Mr. Aikman discusses. He allows us to view the twentieth century as through a six sided prism of virtues -- compassion, forgiveness, truth, etc.

I found that the book not only clarified events that I had only gleaned from bits and pieces previously, but that his portrayal of these six people with all their shortcomings and virtures intact inspired me.

While I will never be (obviously) a Mother Teresa or Elie Wiesel, I will be a better me, I believe, thanks to Mr. Aikman's work.

I recommend it with all my heart.
This is definitely a "Pay-Forward " Book!  Feb 1, 2008
The brilliance, charm and compassion of David Aikman shows clearly in his narratives of these bigger that life individuals who have left their mark on the world.
The writing is compelling...the reader is drawn into the text as if he/she were present at the time.
The moral is of course that the only thing that matter in this life is GOD.
good book  Jan 10, 2008
