Appendix BB: Basking in It

Here you will find extensive lists of primarily non-religious stories, music, poetry etc. that relate to the topic at hand. They are of value on many levels, including: illustrating and reinforcing the concept, showing its connection to natural law and human nature, connecting us to what is good in the culture and providing a link between faith and culture. I’ve also included a list of heroes under each topic. I have already included saints under the “Praying It” pages, but technically they fall under the “Heroes” category as well.
