Trust and Integrity in the Global Economy

'What are the great issues that confront the generation growing up in the foothills of the 21st century? Some of today's generation will determine to change things.

The stories in this book, taken largely from the entrepreneurial field, serve as illustrations of such a determination to make a difference, to change the world... I wanted to present the stories in this book in the hope that they would be a source of inspiration to others.'

It is a fascinating adventure of God working through so many different people. They come from every background, the high and mighty as well as the humble and the simple.

Book cover

Félix Lisiecki se replonge dans ses racines polonaises, retrace son cheminement de l'usine à l'oratorio et fait revivre le dessous des notes de l'Oratorio pour notre temps qu'il a écrit sur un texte de Françoise Caubel-Chauchat et qui a été représenté depuis 1972 plus de soixante fois, sur trois continents. Tour à tour Félix et Françoise racontent cette aventure humaine et spirituelle, sur fond d'actualité, aux côtés d'hommes et de femmes, chefs d'orchestre, musiciens et choristes, acteurs dans la société ou au service de l'Eglise. Un hymne à l'espérance qui proclame, que si on veut bien le voir et le suivre, l'esprit de Dieu se manifeste sur tous les chantiers du monde.
