Seven Discoveries

There are many in the world who are tired of institutionalized religion, but they have not given up on God. There are many seekers who just want to find God, if he is out there. Is God the answer to true fulfillment in life? Jesus once spoke about a road that leads to life and "only a few find it." How can anyone find it if they are not looking?…

Davidson tells the whole, rich story of his life (1694-1778) - his early imprisonment in the Bastille; exile in England and his mastery of English; an obsession with money, of which he made a huge amount; a scandalous love life; his infatuation with Frederick the Great; a long exile on the borders of Switzerland; his passion for watch-making; his human rights campaigns and his triumphant return to Paris to die there as celebrity extraordinaire. Throughout all of this Voltaire's life was always informed by two things: a belief in the essential value of toleration in the face of fanaticism; and in the right of every man to think and say what he liked. It is rare to have such a vivid portrait of a great man.
